Ashbury Eyewear – How it all began

Whatever being ‘grassroots’ actually means, Asbury Eyewear can certainly lay a pretty solid claim to being it. As founders Lance and Michael Hakker and Nima Jalali explain here, the brand started out as a simple idea and through the process of hooking up the right people and generating their own hype, quickly flourished as an alternative to the other big eyewear players.

With a team that includes the likes of Laurent-Nicolas Paquin, Louif Paradis, Jake Kuzyk, Nick Dirks, Jordan Mendenhall, Justin Bennee, Joe Sexton, Harrison Gordon and Danimals – some of the most respected jibbers on the planet – it’s not difficult to see how the brand quickly gained traction with the skinny pant wearing, heavily skate influenced demographic of rider.

Well worth a watch if you’ve ever thought about starting up your own brand.
