Hey, I’m Ben. I’m a junior year high school student studying in the Bay Area, California. I first got into fashion in middle school when I lurked r/mfa and was introduced to raw denim and primarily Americana styles. From there, my interest in fashion bloomed as I delved into various streetwear and high fashion brands and styles. Now, my fashion interests primarily lie in Japanese style and techwear, but I will be writing about any fashion-related topics I’m interested in or come across.
Aside from fashion, I enjoy watching anime and sketching. I have a Shiba Inu named Hiro that you’ll probably see sometime. This blog is an escape from the hell of AP classes and shitty teachers.
My interest in fashion and garments started with vintage clothing and eventually branched out into a plethora of styles ranging from Japanese streetwear to quality menswear. I’m most fascinated with learning the history and inspiration behind a designer/brand. I also love exploring the usage of new and exciting textiles as well as unconventional silhouettes.
Writing was my favorite subject while still in school; I had an article published in the Huffington Post of Brazil. One of the reasons I started this blog was to rekindle my interest in a forgotten hobby. Residing in Los Angeles, I am a graduate of USC currently working as a software developer.
