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.

White Kloud boots is a unicorn in the raw denim and heritage clothing world. Very few people are even aware that the brand exists.

In fact, this… Continue reading Pigeon Tree Crafting Belt Review
