Review: 3sixteen Heavyweight Plain T-Shirt

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve started to appreciate brevity above all else. You can see this shift in my writing over the years; gone are the massive, encyclopedic texts with references to material science and acoustics, in are the short, quick-hitting essays on totes. This appreciation of all things short has extended to t-shirts, too.Continue reading “Review: 3sixteen Heavyweight Plain T-Shirt”

Review: Noah NY Tote Bag

I’ve been finding it difficult to think clearly these days. Isolation anxiety has been conspiring with post-grad uncertainties to ruin my productivity — the only thing that has ever given me validation in life. One thing that is clear, whether pre or post-quarantine, is my choice of bag. Just as I’m stuffing this entire reviewContinue reading “Review: Noah NY Tote Bag”

Not A Review: 18 East x Molloy and Sons Bal Coat

As of late, I’ve created a form, structure and voice that I’m proud of, but I still find it really difficult to put pen to paper, or rather, keycaps to switches. The structure — an irrelevant-to-the-product, wordy preamble, followed by a few brief sentences on the pros and cons of the product, ending with theContinue reading “Not A Review: 18 East x Molloy and Sons Bal Coat”

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. Williams Craftsman Chelsea Boot”

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”

Review: Supreme Hanes Underwear

Honestly, from a technical perspective, these boxer briefs are some of the worst you can buy. 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”
