The Top Ten Best Denim Brands

The last time I did a top ten article, I wrote about leather jackets and that list was the finale of a three part series discussing leather jackets. The first article talked about why leather jackets are awesome and what to look for in a good one. With jeans, I feel this is unnecessary. Leather… Continue reading The Top Ten Best Denim Brands

Grease Point Workwear Dark Olive Work Jeans Review

There are few things I love more than one man brands. One of the most appealing aspects of the heritage menswear world to me is the love and energy that passionate people put into the clothing that they make and to my mind, nothing exemplifies this more than a good one man brand. As such,… Continue reading Grease Point Workwear Dark Olive Work Jeans Review

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

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.

The last several reviews have been fun to do and I am glad I did this one man brand series, but anyone who knows me knew which brand was going to be my favorite before the first article was published. Conners Sewing Factory is my favorite denim brand in the world. I love many brands… Continue reading Conner’s Sewing Factory WWII San Francisco Jeans Review

Viapiana Custom Denim Review

It may surprise you to see a custom denim maker so high on my list after reading that I thought Ooe Yofukuten made the right decision by discontinuing their custom denim. To be honest, I am slightly surprised myself. The custom vs. non-custom battle is an interesting topic and it certainly is an important factor… Continue reading Viapiana Custom Denim Review

Roy Big Bro 2 Jeans Review

The term ‘living legend’ is one that is often overused. In the world of raw denim and heritage work wear, there are many skilled designers and craftsmen that are rightfully revered, but only one who could possibly live up to this title. Roy Slaper is indeed a living legend not simply because he supposedly crafts… Continue reading Roy Big Bro 2 Jeans Review

Ooe Yofukuten x Standard and Strange x 1966 Time Wash Denim Review

First up on our list of one man denim brands is Ooe Yofukuten and before you say anything, allow me to cut you off by admitting that I am well aware of the fact that this brand is run by two people and not one. However, I believe that they absolutely deserve to be considered… Continue reading Ooe Yofukuten x Standard and Strange x 1966 Time Wash Denim Review
