White’s MP Service Boot – TAD Edition

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Triple Aught Design has been teasing a new leather project as a Foundry Project, for several days now.

Turns out, it’s their first Foundry Project collaboration and first entry into footwear. The Foundry is home to Limited Run projects like special colors or materials.

I asked TAD’s Phil Adams about the project and he said this:

White’s Boots is one of the oldest made in USA companies, founded in 1853, making boots since the civil war.  They still do it like they used too, even today.  100% by hand.  Then there’s TAD, one of the newer brands on the block trying to do it the same.  Made in USA.  Small batches of high quality goods that last a lifetime.  So the merging of the two brands for a project seemed like a perfect fit.  Like playing ball with your great grandfather and allowing him to still teach you a thing or two.

The boots launch next Tuesday and orders will be open for just four weeks.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as the Boots are crafted completely by hand, in White’s factory in Spokane, WA, to TAD’s specs, and to the specifics of the customers order.  Truly custom for each customer.  MSRP is $595.

Stay tuned via their Newsletter for notification on the project activation.

Triple Aught Design To Open Outpost In Boulder

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Triple Aught Design has been kicking around the idea of setting up shops, referred to as outposts, in regions outside of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Although I figured their first one would be in New York City, they’ve set their eye on Boulder, Colorado, with an opening date of 1 October. At least it will be a shorter commute for Phil.



Triple Aught Design – Mercury Tech-T 

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Designed to augment and enhance your body’s natural cooling mechanisms, Triple Aught Design’s Mercury Tech-T is designed specifically for performance and comfort for hot conditions.

While natural materials such as cotton excel at trapping moisture against your skin to keep you cool, they can cling to your skin and chafe. Mercury features Polartec® Delta™, a highly engineered 3D mesh that optimizes moisture dispersal and airflow while reducing friction against your skin.


Delta captures and retains moisture in pockets, while remaining cling-free. The specialized knit construction uses both hydrophilic and hydrophobic yarns to enhance convective heat loss, remain breathable, and regulate drying time.

TAD advises that because the Mercury Tech-T cools so well, it shouldn’t be used as a baselayer in cold weather.

Available in Black and Gunship.
