Out & About with Brian Siswojo
we spent a morning with Brian Siswojo, the owner of skate label 8Five2 who has been pushing skateboarding culture in Hong Kong since the ’90s. turns out, in addition to running a skate park with Vans® in Kowloon, Brian is also a fairly specific foodie, so we hit him up for recommendations on how to eat our way through Hong Kong…
Brian, photographed at 8Five2 Shop in Kwun Tong, Kowloon, wears a J.Crew sueded fleece sweatshirt in marled graphite.

Locals Only

while we were in L.A. we met up with four local creative guys, gave them each a
pair of our new Vans® shoes and asked them to show us around some of their
favorite spots…
Mike wears a Deus Ex Machina button-down, a Splendid Mills baseball T-shirt,
an Acne jean and Vans for J.Crew washed canvas sneakers in electric blue.
He rides around on an Arbor skateboard (“especially after a night
at the bars,” he adds).
Ken wears a vintage Pilgrim button-down, a Battenwear sweatshirt, an Apolis
Chore jacket, a pant by Unis, Moscot sunglasses and Vans for J.Crew canvas
sneakers in white. He bikes around on a custom single-speed vintage
“Brooklyn-style Dutch bike” and is rarely without his Contax G2 camera.

John wears a vintage Levi’s® denim jacket, an Industry of All Nations T-shirt, an
M.Nii Drowner pant, a leather wrap bracelet by Kapital and Vans for J.Crew
washed canvas sneakers in turf green.

Derek wears a vintage sweater and button-down, a J.Lindeberg jacket, a Ksubi
jean and Vans for J.Crew washed canvas sneakers in electric blue. He rides on a
custom DL skateboard. “It’s the first DL board we made in California,” says Derek,
who just relocated to the West Coast from Brooklyn. “It’s a keeper.”
