Hong Kong has perhaps the easiest (and cleanest) subway system known to mankind to the history of the universe. There are only a few lines in the network, and everything runs efficiently.
Although it seems like every hour is rush hour down there. PEOPLE. EVERWHERE.
This one’s for you, Neek!
We headed over to our boy Frankie‘s studio on the other side of town. This is the craftsman who cranks out our hats, along with Silly Thing, Fiberops, Know1edge, Haze, and his own brand…
Although Frankie is the mad hatter of the streetwear trade, SUBCREW is more than just the illest hats. Selvedge denim, tops, you name it, Subcrew makes it.
Frankie shows off one of Subcrew’s recent collaborative projects: A trucker hat made with CLOT and Devilock. He tells me it sold out in 15 minutes here in Hong Kong and Japan. I tell him that I need that hat in my life, so I snatch it with my grabbyhands and laugh maniacally. Kind of like a hyena, but on Redbull.
You know we had to round the night out with deep-fried apple pies from McDonald’s! Darn American health consciousness for killin’ em off. And of course, the Hong Kong Mickey D employees got their exclusive McD x Red Monkey denim, and Baby Milo-inspired t-shirts for uniforms. Crazed.
