Wild Frontier Goods Card Wallet Review

Several months ago, I reviewed an awesome belt from Mike over at Wild Frontier Goods in Tokyo, Japan. I not only loved the belt, but I also started to chat often to Mike through Instagram.

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

I expected to feel absolutely ridiculous… Continue reading Himel Brothers Cossack/Campus Leather Jacket Review

One Man Denim Brand Battle: 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 One Man Denim Brand Battle: Roy Big Bro 2 Jeans Review
