In Detail – 7/19/2012

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.

Redwing 879

After seeing these in person, it’s tempting to pick up another pair in my size – rather than a size 6. I really didn’t have many options when picking out a pair of Redwings for my fiance – so I went with these Redwing 879’s. These are the 8″ version of the Moc-toe’s that you usually see me wearing on Simple Threads. Crafted in a rough-out Hawthorne Muleskinner leather, which is actually the most water repellant leather that Redwings offers. I’m sure it will be a week or so before these take on serious indigo stains. As to be expected from a pair of Redwings: Goodyear welted, Traction Tred crepe sole, durable triple-stitch construction, and of course: Made in the USA.
