9Five Eyewear

Howzit!

Well, lets see. I want to talk about 9five , which is not your ordinary eye wear company. 9five Eyewear is targeting the skateboard industry and culture, literary rocking 9Five Eyewear while skateboarding and representing SD.

Being from SD myself I wanted to know the meaning behind the brand name 9five. So I emailed my buddy Glenn @ 9five.

Glenn responded
"Yo what's up meng!

Well 9five is a collective idea. Some may say that it's the year they started skating (1995). Other's have discovered the supreme mathematic algorithm of 9five to total the "Birth of Power" (the number 9 representing the life cycle of "Birth" and the number five represents the knowledge of "Power"). In astrology, every 14th (9 + five) day of the month is when the sun is at its highest. 9five means a lot of things to different people. All in all, it’s really not what 9five is, but rather what's 9five to you?

Hope that covers it.
