Jules Gayton is one of the most respectable and down to earth people you will ever meet, not only in this industry, period. I know that is said for a lot of people in a lot of interviews but, I really mean it. He is an original member of the Stussy Tribe, has DJ’ed for 20+ years and has friends around the world like Jun Takahashi and Hiroshi Fujiwara. He still views the culture as more of a scene rather than a business, though he does own Leilow, and Stussy Honolulu. In some ways I want to write a thorough analysis on all the influence he has had, but I’d rather people do their homework. Instead, I caught up with Jules in Hawaii and had a conversation with him about the current state of things and how he feels that the times are indeed changing. (Photo by: Ryan Lau)
