Tanuki had quite the interesting launch when they catapulted themselves into the raw denim scene a couple of years ago. On places like Superfuture, many denim enthusiasts were not fans of Tanuki’s marketing and mythos behind their brand and I have to admit that I agreed with this sentiment. Tanuki launched with some impressive looking… Continue reading Tanuki ER Jeans Review
We are continuing the trend of interviewing non-British Europeans for Icons of Style! Last time, Volvo_Sufu from Italy was featured and today, we are interviewing Chris from Belgium who is known as Slab on some forums and sasaki_kojiro13 on instagram. Like Volvo, Chris has a criminally low number of followers given how incredible his style… Continue reading Icons of Style: sasaki_kojiro13

In fact, while he specializes… Continue reading Raw Denim Interview: Viapiana Custom 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?
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?
Collaboration jeans are a mixed bag. Quite often, they are nothing more than a special patch and a couple of random details over a standard fabric that is nothing more than a promotional tool for the store that is collaborating with the denim brand. Fortunately, the pair that we will be looking at today does… Continue reading The Denim Hound x Kojima Genes x SF Bridge 1 Jeans Promotional Review
