While most people might know him as “The Sneaker Connoisseur” from the 2009 “One In 8 Million” photo essay on the New York Times, Jesse Villanueva’s expansive interest reaches beyond his kicks collection. A staple on New York City’s Lower East Side, Villanueva rotates effortlessly between his two jobs – the Creative Director of ALIFE New York and Thumpers Speed Shop in Brooklyn, a street racer shop he co-owns with his brother. Then again, it isn’t all that surprising since Villanueva always has a keen eye for all things well designed. Take his denim for example, a 2004 vintage ALIFE x Levi’s 501 which he swears by it or the Sandstone Vest by Carhartt, an American workwear classic, all perfectly suited for a man like Villanueva, who’s always on-the-go.
