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. Wanting something that is made well and made ethically matters to most of us. If we aren’t buying things that are… Continue reading What the heck is “Heritage Menswear” Anyway?

An Interview with Flame Panda Boots

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

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.

The Top Ten Boot Brands List

Ah, Autumn! The leaves begin to change color, the temperature  begins to drop, and summer finally sulks away to bother us all again next year.

Can One Pair of Boots Really be Better than Another?

Recently I’ve been sticking to straight up reviews and style interviews. Quite frankly it has been too long since I’ve put a good rant up here so I will remedy this right now.
