Another epic dinner in Hong Kong with Subcrew and friends. We have known these guys for the better part of a decade now, and during that time, they have become family – although half a world away. Used to go skating with them, now we talk about marriage and kids. I can only imagine how much deeper our friendship would run if we spoke the same language … or maybe we would be less of friends!!
Kit has to bounce from dinner early. I feel like he’s ALWAYS on the run, but with good reason. As a world-class photographer, he’s constantly traveling for work. Tonight he’s got a flight to catch to Amsterdam, I believe it was for a Levi’s shoot. Right now he’s showing us some of his work from India and it really makes me wanna go there to capture some of that color.
KS is seated next to him, one of the designers at Subcrew, and the Hong Kong counterpart for our headwear/accessories designer Vito. Frankie is the PB&J in the sandwich, he’s the founder and head honcho at Subcrew, as well as the friend I’ve known the longest out of the crew. Frankie’s always straight-up and real, such a good dude.
This is Lee-Hawk, who is pure 100% Hong Kong skateboarding. He’s the man at DC in this neck of the woods. Everybody congratulate Lee-Hawk on recently getting hitched (or send your condolences).
And I can’t forget Nelson and Ben. These two are The Hundreds’ longest-running Hong Kong family. Alyasha introduced us way back in the day, and since the start, Ben has been our secret weapon in designing and producing apparel. We couldn’t have done it without him, and we wouldn’t be where we are, and who we are, if it weren’t for this man. The Hundreds couldn’t thank him enough for all he’s done, and we love and appreciate him.
Anyways, enough chit-chat. Time to eat.
