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.

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)”

UNIQLO U Spring/Summer 2020

Uniqlo USA has announced their U Spring/Summer 2020 collection in collaboration with Christophe Lemaire a.k.a. the slouch God, and it’s pretty great.

As always, there are lots of repeats from previousContinue reading “UNIQLO U Spring/Summer 2020”

Review: Supreme Hanes Underwear

They’re identical to Hanes boxers with the exception of Supreme branding at the waist band, and they cost 17 dollars more per 4-pack. They don’t last very much past a dozen spin cycles and they don’t work well onContinue reading “Review: Supreme Hanes Underwear”

Review: Anonymous Ism Socks

This is the sock of choice of Instagram boot guys who are oblivous to the fact that heritage workwear has not been culturally relevant for more than 5 years now and don’t see the irony that appropriating workwear is just as phony as avant garde fashion. And yes, I’m throwing shade at myself here. IContinue reading “Review: Anonymous Ism Socks”

Review: 18 East x Standard Issue Tees Hooded Sweatshirt

Simple logo apparel is usually treated as a cheap(er), money-making entry point that doesn’t actually represent the ethos of the brand. This hoodie OBVIOUSLY isn’t that, just as the fact that I’m OBVIOUSLY the most unbiased reviewer around even though I’ve loved 18 East ever since they were a thing. I’m sitting here sipping onContinue reading “Review: 18 East x Standard Issue Tees Hooded Sweatshirt”
