Style confessions: Joshua Ng


Josh and his twin brother Caleb run a restaurant consultancy, and are also food show hosts. They're co-owners of Common Ground, a cafe tucked away on Shing Wong Street in Sheung Wan. Josh's style is slightly preppy with a focus on proportion, fit, and comfort, allowing him plenty of room for his culinary adventures.


Common Ground This cafe on Shing Wong Street is an extension of the twin brothers' home. Many of the furniture items are found objects that have been repurposed.

Zara jacket It's actually a woman's jacket, but I've had it altered to fit.

Uniqlo shirt Purchased last year from the Uniqlo x undercover limited edition collaboration.

Muji pants I have several pairs. I love the material. The feeling of the fabric is important and I take them to a tailor for alterations, as proportion is very important for me.

Shoes from (un)Fashion Vintage in Bangkok. I passed this store in a taxi, and I was so attracted by the red brick storefront that I returned and bought these leather shoes for HK$400.
