Where the runway meets the street

Anyone who’s been a longtime Highsnobiety reader is aware that we regularly post the best #snobshots on our site and social media platforms. The internet has elevated the everyday act of putting together an outfit to a new level, where it’s not just about dressing well—it’s about dressing better than everyone else.

With that in mind, we’re giving the stylish kids of the digital world a new platform to see if they have what it takes to impress industry insiders. Our new series, Fit Battle, pits two swaggy contestants in a head-to-head competition to determine who got off the illest fit.

In order to win, the combatants have to impress our judges’ panel. This episode features Justin Ryan Kim (@justinryankim) going against Waz Castillo (@wazdope). And our judges panel consists of stylist Corey Stokes, fashion editor Nico Amarca, and guest judge Alex Kasavin, founder of Brooklyn boutique IDOL. We recently featured his shop when we documented how its staff gets dressed.

Now check out our documentary on counterfeit culture in South Korea.
