What are the Most Comfortable Boots You Can Buy?

As much as I love to wax lyrical about clean, tight stitching, cleanly cut leathers, and perfectly polished heels, the fact of the matter is that most people who wear boots care more about comfort than any of that. It is by far the most subjective aspect of boots, yet it’s the one that weighs… Continue reading What are the Most Comfortable Boots You Can Buy?

Durability Does Not Equal Quality

*Note - this is an opinion piece. Feel free to disagree of course, but if you are already angered by the title, you probably should just stop reading now.

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

To Hem or Not To Hem: Cuffing vs. Hemming Your Jeans and Pants

Cuffing jeans is pretty much a default for most fans of raw denim and Amekaji-heritage clothing. In fact, this love of cuffing extends to all trousers, not just jeans.

What the heck is “Heritage Menswear” Anyway?

For most people who are into Amekaji-heritage clothing (raw denim, boots, leather jackets, flannels, etc) the quality of the clothing is a major factor in why they get into and stick with this hobby.

An Interview with Flame Panda Boots

Upon receiving my monkey boots from Flame Panda, I was quite impressed.

My Favorite Boots: Ranking my Entire Boot Collection

For the first time since I started caring about how I dressed, I actually feel fairly content with my current footwear collection. Obviously, I am not naive enough to think that I will never buy another pair of boots. To be honest, there are more boots that I still want. However, I am overall quite… Continue reading My Favorite Boots: Ranking my Entire Boot Collection

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.
