Icons of Style : @johnbbrooklyn

When I hatched the idea of ‘Icons of Style,’ I had a list of people that I wanted to interview right away. However, there was one person that I absolutely had to interview without question. John AKA @johnbbrooklyn is more than just a well-dressed guy who likes denim and boots. He is my denim style… Continue reading Icons of Style : @johnbbrooklyn

Icons of Style: @newenglandmenswear

I have pointed this out several times already, but the word “style” is an integral part of my name and is not simply tacked on to help the name flow. Style is quite important to me and is one of my favorite aspects of the raw denim and heritage menswear clothing world. Buying well made,… Continue reading Icons of Style: @newenglandmenswear

What I Wore Most in 2018

This past year I have reviewed quite a few products, gone on several rants, talked about items of clothing that I liked, and posted quite a few pictures on Instagram. After all of that, I figured that it would be appropriate to tell all of you what items of clothing I wore the most and… Continue reading What I Wore Most in 2018

Why do People Like Double Denim?

I do not like double denim. I wish I did, though. I wish I loved Canadian tuxedos. It would make my life a lot easier. Being a part of the raw denim/heritage menswear community means that I am constantly surrounded by people wearing indigo suits. It very often feels weird to be such an odd… Continue reading Why do People Like Double Denim?

Samurai 15oz Heavy Chino Pants Review

As incredible as denim is, it is far from the only pair of trousers that a guy needs. With chinos being far less common than denim in this subculture, finding a great pair that gets fit, fabric, and details all correct is far more difficult than it is with denim. While I can think of… Continue reading Samurai 15oz Heavy Chino Pants Review

What Makes Leather Jackets So Special?

Leather jackets are a strange animal in the world of raw denim, boots, and heritage menswear. They are a niche within a niche, just like engineer boots are. There are groups of people who love leather jackets and care little for other aspects of clothing, which is not usually true of denim heads. While at… Continue reading What Makes Leather Jackets So Special?

Flannel Fight! Who Makes the Most Popular Flannel Shirt?

Iron Heart is the most popular flannel according to my Instagram polls. Yeah, I know; I’m supposed to do some sort of vague introduction, but I can’t be bothered because of just how predictable this outcome was. While I had a few people predicting a 3Sixteen win due to their popularity and a few more… Continue reading Flannel Fight! Who Makes the Most Popular Flannel Shirt?

Made in Japan vs. Made In USA: Are Japanese Jeans and Boots Better?

The five pocket jean is said to be classic Americana, perhaps more American than apple pie, baseball, and even obesity. Who then could possibly make a better pair of jeans than the land of muscle cars and blue collars? Japan, apparently. Over the decades, those blue collars have largely been exported to other regions, especially… Continue reading Made in Japan vs. Made In USA: Are Japanese Jeans and Boots Better?

Clinch by Brass Tokyo Engineer Boots Review

Engineer boots caught my eye the moment I first set my gaze on a pair. I have always loved boots and rugged clothing, as my love of Western films influenced my tastes from an early age. Something about the laceless design, the buckles, and the perfect balance between a cowboy boot and a work boot… Continue reading Clinch by Brass Tokyo Engineer Boots Review
