THE SHOPS HE LOVES…
UNION | LOS ANGELES
One of the pillars of LA streetwear. The owner, Chris Gibbs, has always had great taste and it continues to evolve. The store carries a great balance of high fashion and Japanese/US streetwear.
HAVEN | CANADA
Haven, based in Canada, is known for curating a mix of streetwear brands along with high end, well-constructed pieces. They also publish a magazine called “Intelligence” which acts as an extension of the store’s point of view on fashion and lifestyle.
UNIONMADE | SAN FRANCISCO
This store carries a large selection of brands in what the Japanese call “rugged trad” style, short for rugged traditionalist. They’re also known for vintage inspired brands, and semi-formal menswear.
