024 | Highsnobiety's Very Own : Jeff Carvalho
Spoiler alert - today's guest is an absolute rockstar when it comes to street style, sneakers, and emerging brands.
With 17 years of commitment to his craft, he is known as the driving force behind one of menswears most notable publications focused on innovative lifestyle coverage.
It's hard to believe that this progressive lifestyle journalist was on a path to becoming a pharmacist, when he quickly pivoted to pursue his interest in fashion, art and style.
Instead he launched a first wave podcast called The Weekly Drop, which was followed by notable listeners including UGK's Bun B, and quickly became a go to source for long-form storytelling on the industries emerging designers, collabs, releases and the like.
Little did he know that this street fashion podcast would lead him to the next stage of his career where he would lead the North American expansion of Europe's leading menswear blog, HighSnobiety.
This week, I had the honor of chatting with the extremely interesting and creative Jeff Carvalho, Co-Founder of Highsnobiety.
He stopped by the pod to chat about his unlikely path to the fashion world, the importance of supporting true talent in a noisy and crowded industry, and what exactly new luxury is and who's shaping it.
