Q. Your first sneaker memory growing up?

I was in high school in the 90s and everything was about Basketball sneakers. I can remember all my friends comparing who got the new this or that. It was so exciting to show up to school with new basketball shoes… it was like the event of the season.

What brands are you wearing these days?

Of course I mostly wear our own brand Naked & Famous Denim. Aside from my own brand, I love Common Projects sneakers for their luxurious materials and brilliant simplicity. I recently got the Achilles Low in Blush and in Silver too.

Q. What are you currently reading? 

Brandon: I’m reading a book about antique Japanese family crests for some design research at the moment.

Q. Which music artists you feeling as of late? 

Brandon: I don’t listen to a whole lot of modern music. Recently I’ve been listening to some 1920s Jimmie Rodgers. Have you ever heard “T for Texas? He sings about guns, he sings “I can get more women than a passenger train can haul”, he sings about booze, he rips on the city of Atlanta… dude was a gangster 50 or 60 years before gangster rap existed.

Q. Where’s your next travel to? 

Brandon: Tokyo and Bangkok.

Q. What does a perfect start to your day look like? 

Brandon: Getting my toddler out of his crib and tickling him to hear him laugh full of joy.
