It has been quite some time since I posted a new article on here, but I am back with something quite special! The following article is my first ever guest article, written by my friend David Burchfield AKA @thevintagefuture. Normally I would not want to include guest articles. However, Dave is someone who I… Continue reading Are Expensive Boots Worth It?
In the previous article, I discussed my ultimate capsule wardrobe. This involved choosing a few items in each category that all worked together. Such an exercise was not easy, but was rewarding nonetheless. Additionally, I said that I would also discuss an even smaller capsule wardrobe- one single outfit. With how long that first article… Continue reading One Outfit for the Rest of Your Life: The Desert Island/Cartoon Character Outfit
I have wanted to write an article on my “desert island outfit” for many years now, but I was always saving it until I had more experience. However, I recently read a fantastic article by Ethan from Brycelands about his choice of capsule wardrobe. If you haven’t already read it, check it out immediately. Ethan… Continue reading The Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe
In the last article, I discussed some aspects of boots that make them comfortable. Here in this follow up article, I will give examples of boots I own or have owned that I find either particularly comfortable or uncomfortable and why. This is not meant to be an objective list of comfortable and uncomfortable boots… Continue reading What are the Most Comfortable Boots? Part 2: The Most Comfortable and Least Comfortable Boots I’ve Owned
As much as I love to wax lyrical about clean, tight stitching, cleanly cut leathers, and perfectly polished heels, the fact of the matter is that most people who wear boots care more about comfort than any of that. It is by far the most subjective aspect of boots, yet it’s the one that weighs… Continue reading What are the Most Comfortable Boots You Can Buy?
*Note - this is an opinion piece. Feel free to disagree of course, but if you are already angered by the title, you probably should just stop reading now. This article is mainly meant for people who are relatively new to the world of denim/boots/heritage clothing and are having this myth spread to them.* In… Continue reading Durability Does Not Equal Quality
This is a subject that I never thought I would write an entire article about. I have talked a little bit about sizing in different denim reviews previously, but I don’t think I really dedicated enough focus to the subject in the past. In fact, I must confess that in the early days of this… Continue reading How to Buy Raw Denim: Sizing Your Jeans
Cuffing jeans is pretty much a default for most fans of raw denim and Amekaji-heritage clothing. In fact, this love of cuffing extends to all trousers, not just jeans. I myself cuffed all my trousers by default for the last 6-7 years. For most of this time period, I haven’t even really thought about it… Continue reading To Hem or Not To Hem: Cuffing vs. Hemming Your Jeans and Pants
As some of you may know, I have continued to shrink even in the past few months after my big weight loss over a year ago. This means that I had to sell two more Freewheelers jackets recently, including my all time favorite jacket which really hurt. I ordered a brown deerskin Freewheelers Bodie as… Continue reading My First In Person Leather Jacket Purchase: Mister Freedom Campus Stallion Jacket
In my last article, I talked about the major style mistakes that I have made in the past. Part of the reason that I wrote that article was to humble myself a little bit because I planned on writing more about style on this website and that meant that I would be talking about what… Continue reading My Favorite Clothing Color Combo of All Time
