Lately I have been getting really tired of looking online and collecting other peoples images and putting them together in various posts, or posting shit I want to buy but can't afford. So I finally got up off my ass and shot my good friend Paul's ill downtown, Manhattan apartment. I'm not a photographer, and I'm not trying to be the next Selby, I just want to share some of my friends places with you guys.
Paul is one of my favorite dudes. Always good to get together with him and chop it up. Enjoy...

Name: Paul Chang
Age: 29
Occupation: Marketing/Video Production (What Matters Most)

1. what is your favorite piece of furniture, or home accessory that you own? Kaws Dissected Companion. I have been a fan of Kaws for a while, and was very lucky to have the opportunity to purchase this while I was on vacation in Vancouver. Just getting the package through the US border was an ordeal. I thought they were gonna rip apart the box looking for weed, but they waived me right through customs. I guess looking like an asian tourist has its advantages sometimes.

2. top 3 favorite clothing labels? RRL, A.P.C., and Our Legacy

3. when i was a senior in highschool I was wearing.... Polo, North Face and Nike ACG. I feel like I'm currently going through that 90s tech phase again

4. piece of furniture im currently obsessed with... Reclaimed wood tables. I am on the hunt for a large farm style dining table for my apartment.

5. Living in NYC please share any space saving secrets. Before I moved into my current place, I got rid of almost anything I thought I couldn't wear two or three times a week without someone noticing. I pretty much wear the same things everyday, so its been a good exercise in simplifying my life and just keeping the things you want to wear daily. I'd rather own 3 shirts I'd wear all the time then have 10 shirts that just get worn every so often.


  1. You have a great blog!! it´s full of inspiration. But this is a great post. I hope you will continue with this, and ..."posting shit you can afford".

  2. You should post more articles similar to this, mixed in with your usual entries. I like what Paul had to say about weeding out things one doesn't really wear that much. I really need to do something like that though it can be a little complicated for us women. Have a great weekend.

  3. FRESH!! So glad you got up off of your ass DJ Myles!!! Love the post. Paul Chang is a great first subject, can't wait to see the rest.

  4. love the mix. looking forward to more.
