How Not to Dress Well: Learning From my Past Style Mistakes

As much as I love learning, discussing, writing, and obsessing about the quality and craftsmanship of the clothing that I wear, the whole point is to wear it, right?

How Good are Outsourced Boots and Shoes? Grant Stone Review

I do not like outsourced production of products. Overall, I believe that it has absolutely no place in the Amekaji scene. To me, any product that is outsourced does not deserve to have the word “heritage” ascribed to it. There are some exceptions, of course. Technically, The Rite Stuff is outsourced because it’s a brand… Continue reading How Good are Outsourced Boots and Shoes? Grant Stone Review

My Favorite Boots: Ranking my Entire Boot Collection

For the first time since I started caring about how I dressed, I actually feel fairly content with my current footwear collection. Obviously, I am not naive enough to think that I will never buy another pair of boots. To be honest, there are more boots that I still want. However, I am overall quite… Continue reading My Favorite Boots: Ranking my Entire Boot Collection

Nicks Boot Review: The Nicks Robert Boot
