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
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

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?
White Kloud boots is a unicorn in the raw denim and heritage clothing world. Very few people are even aware that the brand exists. The unique aesthetics mean that few people are seriously interested in buying a pair, and even fewer people are able to actually obtain a pair. This is because the boots are… Continue reading The Best Boots in the World: White Kloud Custom Boots Review
The five pocket jean is said to be classic Americana, perhaps more American than apple pie, baseball, and even obesity.

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?
