Jeff’s story is simply incredible. He grew up in as an immigrant from China in a predominantly Italian, Jewish community. He tried to downplay his identity as being Chinese and didn’t want to use the race card when he started building his brand. He didn’t want to be identified as the coolest Chinese streetwear designer. He wanted to be the best streetwear brand regardless of color.
