Are Made in China Boots Better than Made in USA Boots?: Iron Boots Review

I know this looks like the most clickbait title of all time, but I promise you, it’s not. Iron Boots is a small boot company out of China that has been selling in Japan for a little while now, but has only more recently branched out into the North American market. “Made in China” has… Continue reading Are Made in China Boots Better than Made in USA Boots?: Iron Boots Review

The Best Summer Shirts for Men

Summer is the worst. Well, I shouldn’t say that. There are good things about summer. Summer weather, however, is awful. Heat makes me miserable, sluggish, sweaty, and irritable. I would gladly be in below freezing weather over being in 90F/32C weather. Part of this is because I enjoy cold weather, but part of it is… Continue reading The Best Summer Shirts for Men

My First In Person Leather Jacket Purchase: Mister Freedom Campus Stallion Jacket

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

How Not to Buy a Leather Jacket: My First Leather Jacket and Why I Sold It

As much as I adore leather jackets, they are quite a rabbit hole to go down. Boots are difficult to size for some people, but once you really understand your Brannock size and the unique eccentricities of your feet, then you are largely good to go. Some will disagree of course, but at least for… Continue reading How Not to Buy a Leather Jacket: My First Leather Jacket and Why I Sold It

Nicks Boot Review: The Nicks Robert Boot

*I received this pair of boots for free to review. I still try to be as critical and objective as I usually am, though I know that this is impossible for any human to do. However, I received no money to write this review and I receive no compensation from Nicks. I do not ever… Continue reading Nicks Boot Review: The Nicks Robert Boot

Are Made in USA Boots Better? Does it Matter Where Your Boots are Made?

‘Made in USA’ carries quite a lot of weight for many people in clothing, especially for boots. There are so many brands that build their entire image and reputation on their boots being made in America and how that makes them inherently better made and more rugged and durable than other boots. Are those claims… Continue reading Are Made in USA Boots Better? Does it Matter Where Your Boots are Made?

Willie Watson C&O Railmans Jacket Review

I talk about leather jackets a lot on here. If you’re into Amekaji-heritage clothing and raw denim, then you probably already own at least one or two denim jackets and know about or own a waxed cotton jacket, peacoat, deck jacket, or leather jacket. One of the appealing aspects of this style of clothing for… Continue reading Willie Watson C&O Railmans Jacket Review

Why Are There no Affordable Engineer Boots?

Being someone whose identity has been inextricably tied to engineer boots by others for years, I get a slew of questions regarding them. Among the most common questions and laments that I get from friends, emailers, and people on Instagram is “Where can I buy affordable engineer boots?” While I answer every question I get… Continue reading Why Are There no Affordable Engineer Boots?

Icons of Style: sasaki_kojiro13

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

Railcar Fine Goods Flight Trousers Review

Railcar Fine Goods is not that far from where I live, especially by California standards. Even with traffic, I can usually get there in under an hour. I have been there many times for events and hang-outs and I have had many pairs of jeans and trousers hemmed there. My brother owns a pair of… Continue reading Railcar Fine Goods Flight Trousers Review
