Growing up as the son of a Korean immigrant, fashion has always been central to my life. Like many Korean families who came to America, I grew up in the dry cleaning business. As my father's business was in an affluent town (Hudson, Ohio), I was exposed to the best in clothing.
While I was on the road pushing BlackCoat for Travel and Slimmy OG Slim Wallets to traditional retail, I also came across several apparel and accessories items that I loved. As it turned out there were a lot of other minimal enthusiasts who felt the same way... Below is a list of fashion apparel and accessory brands I launched:
- Branie Mechanical Belts
- Koyono Travel Appreal
- Phosphor Watches
- Rainbow Sandals
- Tricot St. Rafael Steve Jobs Crew and Mock Tees
- Takumi Dress Shorts
