    ___Hi XXBC, How are you?

    XXBC: (Alex & Will) Not so bad. And you?

    ___Where you live? It's around where you born?

    Will: I live in Jersey City, New Jersey. I was born in New York, though. The two are about an hour away from each other.

    Alex: I live in Brooklyn, New York, which is nowhere near where I was born. I'm originally from Medway, Massachusetts about a 5 hour drive from here.

    _____What your work talking about, in a few words?

    Alex: I think our work talks about originality, innovation, comfort and just enjoying life.

    ­___What are yours tips for producing?

    Alex: Make sure you know how much it'll cost before you go ahead and do it. After 2 collections, we've come to realize how important it is to take a step back and ensure what you're doing is cost-effective. In that sense, it's necessary to be patient and cautious at times, even when all you want to do is go, go, go.

    Will: Be patient; be efficient; be careful when choosing your factories. And constantly check on your garments to make sure they are being sewn correctly.

    ___And what are yours tips to feel good?

    Alex: I think meditating is a great way to feel good and I wish I did it more often. Even just taking some time to sit alone or to read a few pages in a book can make a big difference in your day. Oh, and don't eat shitty foods!

    Will: Listening to Dom Kennedy and drinking a cold glass of lemonade. Shoe shopping makes me feel good, too.

    ­___Does any extraordinary things happened to you recently?

    Alex: Well, I just graduated from college. Now I can enjoy my life!

    Will: My sister bought a house, had her 2nd baby and graduated from medical school. She's pretty extraordinary.

    ­___What would you suggest me to see, or hear?

    Alex: Alldayeveryday has some great mixes on their "SoundCloud". I'd suggest you give them a listen.

    Will: I would suggest you listen to Dom Kennedy's "From The West Side With Love 2" album. I would also suggest you watch the documentary on Pina Bausch if you haven't already seen it.

    ­___Carnet d'Ivoire can help XXBC in the future?

    Alex: For sure... I think, through this interview, we are in the process of forming a friendship that could definitely bloom into a mutualistic relationship. You be the bee, we'll be the flower.

    ___If you could change something about you or in the world.. what would it be?

    Alex: I wish people would just put the bullshit behind them and live in peace. Can't we all just get along?

    Will: If I could change something about myself, it would probably be my texting skills. If I could change something about the world... That's too tough. This world is crazy.

    ­___What you give me? And what i can give you in return?

    Alex: You've already given us some awesome vinyls, so we owe you. Name your price and it's yours.

    ___Thanks guys, There is a question that you would liked me to ask you?

    Alex: I think you asked us some great questions, so no there isn't a question we would like you to ask us. Thanks for checking!
