Red Wing 8881

Well, someone please quote me on this: this is my last pair of Red Wing’s. Over the holidays, I treated myself to a pair of the 8881 Moc-toes. This model comes in a olive mohave rough-out leather. I wanted some olive drab-ish boots, and now I’ve got them. These are really great if you’re trying to switch it up from the “typical” Moc-toes. Traditional crepe sole, triple-stitch construction, Goodyear welted, and made in Red Wing, MN. 100+ years of making footwear doesn’t lie.

Up close: Engineered Garment Fatigues

I’m still amazed by the amount of detail in every Engineered Garments piece. From the hidden pocket to the interesting choice of fabric, these pants are definitely a major change from what I’m used to wearing; as they’re made to wear pretty baggy. Details include:

  • Made of a really heavyweight ripstop cotton
  • Talon zipper fly
  • Hidden pocket in the waist band
  • Internal suspender buttons
  • Taped seams
  • Made in New York.

These will definitely get a lot of wear in the coming months. I’ll put up a photo of them on tomorrow, the sun sets to darn early these days…
