Podcasters Call Out Streetwear, Hypebeasts Fuming

This morning, an Highsnobiety Instagram post, to the chagrin of many a sneakerhead, quoted Throwing Fits podcasts hosts James Harris and Lawrence Schlossman saying that hype culture has gotten out of control. Soon after, the comment section of the post blew up, bombs lobbed from both sides of the argument. To be fair, the secondContinue reading “Podcasters Call Out Streetwear, Hypebeasts Fuming”

Snow Peak’s Spring Forward: Archive Sale

Right off the bat, the Snow Peak Spring Forward: Archive Sale is the best sale of the virus season to date. These Japanese-designed (some Japanese-made), crunchy G.O.R.P-wear is everything I want to wear right now. From my experience, everything Snow Peak makes fits easy and wears cozy. If I had the bread, I would buyContinue reading “Snow Peak’s Spring Forward: Archive Sale”

What’s On My Mind (April 2020)

In my last ‘What’s On My Mind’, I talked about how my style pickups were just as important as worldly issues, Coronavirus included. Granted, that was before I really felt the impacts of the virus, and making that statement now would be regarded by many as insensitive at best. But riddle me this: why isContinue reading “What’s On My Mind (April 2020)”

Review: Suicoke KAW-VS Slides in Grey Suede

A common refrain among Internet shoe nerds is that expensive footwear is an investment. In that case, I would say that I manage a well-diversified footwear portfolio. I now have a shoe for every situation I can imagine, and probably shoes that I don’t actually need. Last summer, after seeing the cool Japanese streetwear kidsContinue reading “Review: Suicoke KAW-VS Slides in Grey Suede”

Review: Dickies Double-Knee Painter Pants in Natural

I’ve wanted to pen this review a for a while now but mainstream media has consistently managed to snipe my beat before I full send the article out into the universe. Condé Nast, Gear Patrol, and New York Mag have all given these pants some play in the last few months, but I’ve decided thatContinue reading “Review: Dickies Double-Knee Painter Pants in Natural”

Review: R.M. Williams Craftsman Chelsea Boot

I got these boots three years ago while visiting some friends in London. I didn’t think much of leathers, outsoles or any sort of specifications then. It was a good deal and I was looking for a pair in a tan color. In writing this review, I thought back to that moment, remembering vividly howContinue reading “Review: R.M.

Maybe I Don’t Want To Be Popular

I’ve been getting lots of emails recently from SEO/site analytics people trying to sell me products to boost my page views. Maybe I’m big enough of a fashion blogger that people think I have the bread to pay them for better SEO performance. Or maybe it’s because I stupidly put up my email address onContinue reading “Maybe I Don’t Want To Be Popular”

Review: Elijah Craig Small Batch

Tasting Notes Nose: Classic bourbon profile, with an immediate hits of vanilla and oak. Palate: Oak, vanilla and sweet corn forward with a side of nuts and dusty corn. Full-bodied bourbon profile with that little bit of rye spice that makes it interesting. One of the sweetest bourbons I’ve tried, and that’s not necessarily aContinue reading “Review: Elijah Craig Small Batch”

What’s On My Mind (March 2020)

No, this is not about worldly issues like the Coronavirus’ impact on Weblen goods, Michael Bloomberg’s appropriation of Instagram meme culture (and by association, democracy!!!), the global rise of right wing populism or the shift in global weather patterns due to environmental damage. Though it may not be obvious, equally important is my next styleContinue reading “What’s On My Mind (March 2020)”
