jeremy first became a part of the esby team as a marketing intern last summer before becoming the face of our FW17 mens collection. we were lucky to work with him as an employee then, and are still lucky now to have him as one of our current lookbook models. a genuine soul with a down-to-earth and relaxed nature, we can't wait to see where jeremy goes next.

jinbei kimonos! eastern minimalism deserves more appreciation.

my father - he's not a man of many words but in everything he says, there is wisdom and truth. he's true to his values but also knows when to loosen up and keep a few buttons unbuttoned with a cigar in his hand.
