Why Are There no Affordable Engineer Boots?

Being someone whose identity has been inextricably tied to engineer boots by others for years, I get a slew of questions regarding them. Among the most common questions and laments that I get from friends, emailers, and people on Instagram is “Where can I buy affordable engineer boots?” While I answer every question I get… Continue reading Why Are There no Affordable Engineer Boots?

John Lofgren Interview

If you know Amekaji-heritage clothing and boots, you know the name John Lofgren. His footwear has become a staple of this hobby and his engineers are considered by many to be one of the models that kicked off the current engineer revival we have been experiencing lately. Lofgren engineers were my first pair of Amekaji-heritage… Continue reading John Lofgren Interview

Tanuki ER Jeans Review

Tanuki had quite the interesting launch when they catapulted themselves into the raw denim scene a couple of years ago. On places like Superfuture, many denim enthusiasts were not fans of Tanuki’s marketing and mythos behind their brand and I have to admit that I agreed with this sentiment. Tanuki launched with some impressive looking… Continue reading Tanuki ER Jeans Review

Icons of Style: sasaki_kojiro13

We are continuing the trend of interviewing non-British Europeans for Icons of Style! Last time, Volvo_Sufu from Italy was featured and today, we are interviewing Chris from Belgium who is known as Slab on some forums and sasaki_kojiro13 on instagram.

Railcar Fine Goods Flight Trousers Review

Railcar Fine Goods is not that far from where I live, especially by California standards. Even with traffic, I can usually get there in under an hour. I have been there many times for events and hang-outs and I have had many pairs of jeans and trousers hemmed there. My brother owns a pair of… Continue reading Railcar Fine Goods Flight Trousers Review

Urban Shepherd Boot Review

Let’s be honest, if you have a friend who wants a pair of boots under $300, chances are you either tell them to save up or you tell them to buy a pair of Red Wings. Sure, there are other options technically such as Wolverine, Chippewa, Thorogood, and even Allen Edmonds depending on your style.… Continue reading Urban Shepherd Boot Review

Grease Point Workwear Dark Olive Work Jeans Review

There are few things I love more than one man brands. One of the most appealing aspects of the heritage menswear world to me is the love and energy that passionate people put into the clothing that they make and to my mind, nothing exemplifies this more than a good one man brand. As such,… Continue reading Grease Point Workwear Dark Olive Work Jeans Review

Whiskey Leatherworks x Rugged Workwear ‘Rugged Gear’ Roughout Flask Promotional Review

I don’t really drink that much, but I’ve always wanted a flask.  Something about them has always appealed to me and I simply think they look cool. Maybe it's the cowboy aesthetic, or the long lost sophisticated gentleman vibe, but either way, I've always wanted one. Part of the reason is that when I do… Continue reading Whiskey Leatherworks x Rugged Workwear ‘Rugged Gear’ Roughout Flask Promotional Review

Viberg Service Boot Review

Is it time for me to eat my words? By now, I think most people are aware of my now infamous What Happened to Viberg article which is my most read article on my website by a wider margin than the gap between Pandemic’s beloved Star War: Battlefront II and EA’s disastrous version. While that… Continue reading Viberg Service Boot Review

Why do People Like Double Denim?

I do not like double denim. I wish I did, though. I wish I loved Canadian tuxedos. It would make my life a lot easier. Being a part of the raw denim/heritage menswear community means that I am constantly surrounded by people wearing indigo suits. It very often feels weird to be such an odd… Continue reading Why do People Like Double Denim?
