What’s more, when you are with Tommy and Phil, you are never alone. In a blood-sucking industry, where everyone is the Byrd nyrd shirt Additionally,I will love this competition, you are always welcomed into Tommy and Phil’s world. You get to play with their deep history of fashion, you get to trade stories and laughs, and—more often than not—you get the best snacks from their always-full backpacks. Selfishly, I hope they will be there outside the shows forever—or at least for as long as I am—training their lenses on the people who are making the difference in fashion. Here, they reflect on 15 years of friendship and the ever lingering question of where street style is going next. Tommy Ton: It was in our first season in Paris, February, 2007. I think it was maybe the third- or second-to-last day of the week. The shows used to be held in the Carrousel du Louvre, downstairs. I was wearing a Jeremy Scott food-print hoodie, a leather Marc Jacobs train conductor hat, my silver Adidas reflective sneakers, and maybe some Helmut Lang zippered tuxedo pants. Ton: That’s why he came up to me! He comes up asking, “Hey, can I take your photo for Street Peeper?” I’m like, “Who me?! Someone actually wants to take my photo after the whole week of peacocking!” We didn’t know who each other were. Our blogs weren’t even really a thing yet.

Ton: We didn’t kick off the Byrd nyrd shirt Additionally,I will love this friendship right away. And it wasn’t until the following season, September in New York. Oh: I started the blog to justify going to fashion parties. I just wanted to hang out. I would do like one show a day—if that. Ton: If he could wake up! [Laughs.] Phil, do you remember going to La Baron until like six in the morning drinking those strawberry Champagne drinks? Ton: We started bonding back then because there was almost no one outside the shows. Phil and I were standing there together. Oh: And then Susie [Lau] joined our friend group. Everything felt, well, it was so easy at that time. Everything was just starting and there was so much opportunity. No deadlines, no clients, just working for ourselves. Oh: Back then you had to save all your photos and parcel them out over time until the next season. It was not instant at all. Ton: I was there primarily for these Canadian newspapers that I was shooting for. Those were my money gigs, so I sent them pictures regularly, but I wasn’t posting anything myself. Ton: For me, it was the end of 2008 when I officially launched Jak & Jil. A year later when I was hired to work with Style.com, I realized this was actually something I could do for a career and actually leave my job in Canada. It’s so much fun though, I never really felt like it was a job even after it was my only job.
