My Shopping Behaviors
” I like buying things that have a connection to hip hop and the culture and have character. If I’m buying something I want to know the history behind it. I desire that brand that’s unidentified however has a story behind it. I’m a big fan of Willie Esco, one of the godfathers of streetwear. He purchased this brand name called Jaclar and learning about the brand name, I ended up falling in love with them and supporting them. I’ve been buying a lot of their things, from them however also from Dropp and eBay. I have actually been discovering tennis shoes from the ’70s, things that’s like, a piece of history that if you don’t talk about it, it gets forgotten.”

My Favorite Resale Platform|Arena Item
” Yeah, the important things is this: all the other platforms, I get a lot of phonies if I buy from them. With Stadium Item, I’ve never had that concern. I do not know if they have a smaller sized volume of sales or whatever but I get a great deal of fakes. I saw my nephew a year ago in London and he simply had a lots of fakes. He ‘d gotten them all from other platforms. And they have brick and mortar areas, you understand? You can put a face to who you’re handling. If I buy something and it’s a little janky, a minimum of I can go talk to them about it.”
What I Like To Wear: Yeezy 350 V2
