Global Community // I reached out to Francisco & Ximena after seeing that they linked up with the homie @joshuakissi of @streetetiquette while he was in Mexico City. These two were so great in helping me navigate through the city and showing me their perspective on Mexico City. Besides being creatives, they are two of the coolest people I've had the chance to encounter upon my travels. I'm so grateful to them for all of their help and I am definitely waiting for them to come to the west coast! Thankful to @instagram for the ability to create a global community of creatives through travel! Will definitely look to continue this as we take many more trips in the future.
Global Community // I met Esteban at his studio in Mexico City. The beauty of @instagram is that it allows you to connect with like-minded individuals from around the world. Although I never met him before, he showed me what he has been working on with his latest collection for @readytodie . Esteban created this brand out of a love for streetwear and the desire to have the perspective of Mexican fashion design on the worlds biggest stages. We spoke a little about the youth culture scene in Mexico City and the contrast that the city presents in terms of how many diverse narratives are present all at once. Please check him out and look out for more from him in the near future! #tailoredheritage
Visited the historic Azteca Stadium for a tour and the U.S. vs. Mexico game that ended in a 1-1 draw. The craziest thing for me was the crowds energy and love for their country. Even though the U.S. is considered Mexicos biggest rival in soccer, every Mexico fan I interacted with approached me with respect and a great curiosity about who I was and how much I was enjoying my trip. #tailoredheritage
Had the chance to spend three days in Mexico City! While there is much I did not get to do in this massive city we will be sharing moments from my trip in the coming days. Mexico City is the largest Spanish speaking city in the world with around 21.2 Million people in the greater CDMX. There were many different neighborhoods with different energies and vibes so I will definitely need to head back soon to experience more of this great place! #vscocam
Had the chance to take a short trip to Mexico City this past weekend. I was beyond inspired by the city as I got to meet some like-minded creatives and venture around this giant city full of history and so much life. Will be sharing some moments and stories from this trip soon but in the meantime you'll have to settle for this portrait. ~ @m.alexander_ // #tailoredheritage
PF Flyers // Thinking back to some of the work we did with @pf_flyers . It's always amazing to work with a company that understands quality and appreciates heritage. Part of why we created TH was to always commemorate the quality and values of the past so we can create with meaning today. #tailoredheritage#unfollowthecrowd
Monday Thoughts // The longer we've worked on TH, the more clarity and reassurance we've received that everything will figure itself out. We have the power to create the lives we want - as long as we focus on creating that success right now.
@uniformjournal // While walking the streets of Silver Lake we happened to run into our friend @uniformjournal . We met in the early stages of Tailored Heritage so it was a nice surprise to hear about all he has been up to. Head over to his page to check out his latest adventures. #tailoredheritage
