Redwing 8114 Iron Ranger

First of all, I’m sorry for the hiatus. I wanted to take some time to figure out what direction I wanted Simple Threads to head in, and I feel like I know what I’m doing now. Thanks for still reading and all of the e-mails asking me if I was still alive. It’s super awesome to have kept in contact and spoke with so many people from all over the globe and I’m eternally grateful for that. So, anyways… I am alive, and it feels really good to be starting Simple Threads back up again.

So all of that being said, I finally got around to picking up a pair of 8114 Iron Rangers’. I think I waited so long because I heard such bad stories about people not being able to properly size them due to the last being different than models like the moc-toes, etc. I went with my normal Redwing size (10.5) and I have to say they fit wonderful right out of the box. The boot itself has a different silhouette than I’m used to wearing, but I think that is why I like them so much. Construction of course is top notch: Goodyear welt, Nitrile cork sole, and a double-layer toe cap.

I never really thought of my blog as a fashion blog, and the more and more I continue forward with Simple Threads, the more I realize that it isn’t. It’s just a photographic journal of well made American clothing from some amazing brands with rich history. I’m not by any means fashionable, and I honestly am fine with that. I just like to share the wear & tear of the stuff I own. To show everyone else why it’s worth the extra money for nice stuff.

It’s really good to be back. A long move, and a very busy work schedule have kept me away for far too long. Thanks for sticking around and continuing to read & write me. Summer is 100% here, yet I continue to find myself in these Left Field trousers. At first, a herringbone pattern on pants sort of weirded me out due to the vertical stripes, but now I’ve grown to really dig them. Brushed flannel Engineered Garments work shirt and the good ol’ RW 8131’s. Summer or not, these are just to comfortable to take off.

Laundry Days

I just felt like taking photos today. Which also so happens to be, laundry day. I enjoy washing my clothes, and driving my fiance nuts because I just throw them all in together and never separate anything. They always come out looking better (and smelling) than before.

Engineered Garments Railroader Coat

The only good thing about the colder months leaving, is the sales that come along with them. I had my eyes on this coat for awhile, and when I saw it was under $150, I had to jump on it. Amazing details; and definitely my new favorite Engineered Garments piece that I own.  Done up in a over-dyed indigo denim, with triple chain stitching throughout. Removable buttons, and various pockets. Corduroy lined placket and collar. Throat latch. Reinforced elbows. Made in the USA. Really glad to have this one for many years to come.

It’s already way to warm out for jackets, but I really don’t care. This Post O’alls BDU has been getting a lot of wear, and I’m thinking about maybe dying it with indigo. We’ll see how that goes.
