Meet Yetta Chan and Llyod Lo is one of the best experience for me, not only they really know a lot of thing about denim, they are also kind and cool.

You can find a lot of Japanese denim here in Take 5, from Samurai jeans, The Flat Head, Pure Blue Japan, Momotaro jeans, Iron Heart, Warehouse, Pherrow etc.

Take 5 often make a collaboration product with the brands that they carry, for example an exclusive Momotaro jeans with peach fruit on the backpocket.

You can also find leather goods accessories like Redmoon and Kawatako

There is also a big loaded of Lightning magazines that i think was translated into Cantonese language.

And you can find silver sterling – Native American designed jewelries by First Arrow in Take 5. which crafted by hand with great details on every piece of the artwork.

Take 5 is a heaven for denim heads all over the world, their purpose to spread American culture in Asia is not an easy task, but Benny really working hard on it, that’s why American culture is more popular now in Hong Kong

And to meet Benny Seki himself is an experienced that I will never forget in my lifetime, is like meet an Idol for me,

Benny Seki have a big connection with everybody who are related to this American Culture things in Japan, and in the world

With his vision to spread the American culture through fashion, Benny is one of the most successful man in my opinion

I also discussed about PRACT with him, and ask for his opinion about the products itself, and input is very precious for me to improve the quality of the products.
