This Sneaker & Water Shoe Combo is well worth a look! (X-Scape Baja Review)

Late last summer, I received a package; I didn’t know what it was, other than that it was from Deckers X Lab! After opening it, I found a pair of some of the strangest shoes I have ever seen, with no box, no description, and no explanation on Deckers X Lab’s website. Well – it […]

You no longer had to keep a massive leather bifold in your backpocket, not only hurting your back, but storing far too many receipts from six years ago. Since that time, there have been plenty of rivals, iterating on the design that

Double Oak’s Leather Wallets Changed My Mind! (Founder’s Edition Review)

I haven’t been overly fond of leather-based minimalist wallets, and in fact, I was quite harsh with the Ekster Wallet that I had tested a while back because it was just too big to be a minimalist wallet. However, after a viewer of my YouTube channel mentioned that I should check out Double Oak Essentials,
