My favorite sneakers of all time… would have to be Air Force 1’s

A bag I use on a regular basis is… The North Face Exocet 38, I appreciate how many compartments it’s equipped with (accessory pockets); durability; It’s comfortable on my shoulders and how deep the bag is… enough room for a weekend/short trip.

My article of clothing… would have to be my Peas & Carrots International Custom Nike Bespoke jacket I received from Nike Sportswear.

One thing I am saving up for… would have to be the Pendleton x Timberlands. Pendleton is that wave! It’s just something about those Native American Geometric Patterns that capture my eye.

A trend that I am tired of… would have to be the foxtail jump-off. That shit is corny.

Something I never leave my house without… would have to be my Supreme key holder and some chap stcik for this dry ass Los Angeles weather. I am used to humidity.

Favorite look for a female… to me would have to be Erin Wasson meets Vashtie. Combine the two if that makes any sense.
