Utilizing the Sk8-Hi as a base, nonnative’s latest Vans redesign combines functionality and style. The laces are substituted for a zipper and relegated to decorative status, surrounding the laces and dangling down the side in the same vein as last year’s Converse collaboration. Substantial suede uppers complement the thick rope laces, and a checkerboard lining adds a pop of visual interest. nonnative’s understated tag appears on the tongue and insole, keeping the shoe sophisticated despite its unorthodox accents.

Look for the sneaker to release in January 2018 for ¥18,500 JPY or approximately $160 USD

 Gucci is stealing the wave that LV has set out for years. LV has been needing to hit back. Hard. Thier losing the youth and they don't seem to get it, yet. This maybe can get it back to the place of people paying attention. I love the bags. I have to get at least three. 

 With its range of seasonal goodies already available to well-heeled shoppers, Louis Vuitton‘s Spring/Summer 2018 range of goods is being readied now. The luxury behemoth takes cues from travel for its new range, specifically from one hypothetical travel manual.

Taking inspiration from Judith Schalansky’s 2009 book Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will, which recounted details of fantastical destinations without ever having visited them, creative director Kim Jones created a line of leather duffel bags, backpacks, shoulder bags, wallets and more. With Louis Vuitton’s branding and Monogram taking center stage, the collection is anything but understated, with bold hits of blue adding flair to the monochrome and earth-toned offerings. A series of leather luggage tags come already embossed with the names of desirable locals and silver-tipped drawstrings allow the tags to attach to any of the bags easily.

It's beginning to look a lot like, what? Follow my every step. I didn't forget to make this playlist, therefore, I have won the day.  I'm here to also save that plain jane Christmas nightplaylist that you are putting together. Let me help you. As always, add all the songs to your playlist and all the frame if you want. Credit is for cards but follows are nice. (Twitter/Instagram).  



Outkast "Player's Ball"
At this point, it's not that much of the little fun fact but something that everybody knows. Player's Ball is not only the first song that ever got OutKast any mainstream attention but the duo raps about players ball they attend on Christmas Day. Player's Ball is about Christmas. Talk about being creative when it came to not even wanting to do the La Face Family Christmas Album, to begin with.  This ironic song would also find it's way to the duo's debut album.  I'm talking bout a black man heaven here. 




Kanye West x Cy Hi The Prynce   x Teyana Taylor "
Christmas In Harlem"
 Part of one of the greatest music series known as "GOOD Friday". Christmas in Harlem features the always vibrant Kanye West and wordplay knight, Cy-Hi The Prynce with Teyana Taylor blessing the hook.  


The 69 Boyz  "What You Want for Christmas" / Remix
 The stuff of legends has finally been found on Apple Music. I been searching high and low and only finding the remix. Not anymore. Those days are gone. I can now enjoy the 69 Boyz holiday classic without youtube.Because it's twelve things on the Christmas list and it goes a little something like this.  Fun fact: This is one of the five (yeah) rap songs that my mom actually like.



The Emotions "What Do the Lonely Do At Christmas"
 You know, I used to sing this song so much as a kid. Never realizing how sad this song really is.  Used to be singing my heart out. I once yelled from the back seat of my mom car as a kid "So what do they do?". She looked back right into my eyes and said the words I would never forget "How the fuck would I know?"
Run DMC "Christmas In Hollis"
 Such the wildest tale of what happens in Hollis around Christmas. 



James Brown "Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto"
 James making sure that Santa doesn't forget about the kids in the ghetto. They need the love too.  

Mariah Carey "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
You know that every Christmas Mariah makes 500K from this song. Let's help her make some more. Because, why not? 
Feel free to tweet me your favorite Christmas songs.

It's that time of the year again. When all the kids finally gain ears and do this odd thing called "Listening". Funny how it starts and end within the span of a month. My niece too young so I don't get that month yet. What I do get is what everybody else gets.  The holiday Christmas party. The worst and best of times wrapped into one. This is where you hope the words "Pot" and "Luck" are not put together. We don't do that at Squire + Said. Keep whatever you made for the real people you love. I'm sure they enjoy that seven layers of whatever, that doesn't have a lick of seasoning. Keep it. 

What I do want is the party to be live and the music to be pumping. (Sorry Jersey Shore marathon on). Just not too much. Don't be touching people that don't wanna be touched. 


 It's safe to say that I shall be the freshest person at the Squire + Said party. Actually, this post and this look can be something year around, this is just what I will be wearing as I try not to waste Calamari on my shirt. 

This is one of the jackets I bought earlier in the year and been saving it for just the right time. I didn't want the first time wearing this to be not around the holidays. I was thinking about bringing this out for the Tom Ford show but passed on it. It's not Tom Ford. It seems right to bring it out now cause I won't be wearing another ugly sweater again. 


 I'm never going to but smoking a Cuban while wearing a turtleneck seems pretty dope.  I have been matching them up with all my suit jackets lately. Gives off the playboy vibes. Like you should be in some dark room with the light only on you. Ready to break the legs of some dude that owes you enough money that his life has to be taken. Whoa, too much? Yeah. 




 The holiday season is the best time to let your hair down. Me not so much. My hair seems to do what it wants to do. So now seems to be the time to bring out the jeans. Ripped, of course. 


When you saw the jeans you already knew what was coming next cause it was not gonna be anything else. I can't  look down and see the disrespect that the jeans would be doing to some loafs or sneakers.

The end of the year is here and it's time to break out all the things you been buying during the year for this time. That's the best time to buy the Christmas stuff. During the year and after Christmas. You have closets and basements for reasons. Which reminds me. I have to get my auntie plates and all that other stuff out my basement, early.  Instead of waiting for Christmas day. 

While everybody seems to love the gifts and the sharing of love. I'm here for the movies. This is the time that all the movies start to fly around the TV. Some of my favorites don't get as much run as it used to but I had to be old and just buy them.  


 Snow Day
 Let's start with the one that was all our dreams. We all had the biggest of crushes on Claire Bonner (Emmanuelle Chriqui). Ten year old me watched this movie just for her. Hal Brandston was the bravest man in the world to me at the time. That was shooting your shot before shooting your shot. That takes some balls. You get on the news and do all that. Then making whales in the snow for her? I thought he was the bravest. I left out the part where her ex-boyfriend wanted to kill him though.  Pam Grier is also in this movie and the other kids were fighting to have another snow day. Buy Here 


  Jingle All the Way 
Some of you might be too young to know this but when we were younger, you had to go to stores. It wasn't the Cyber Monday and it was just Black Friday and it was fighting. I never got to see any fighting. My mom never went. I always got what I wanted though. This movie is about the adventures of one man search for Turbo Man. Buy Here. 



 A Christmas Story 
 How long has this movie been running all day on Christmas? Feels like all my life at this point. I tell you, I ain't complaining. Just wondering. This is where I found out the soap in the mouth was something and had me fearing the outcome of saying bad words. I still said some words. When my muthafucking mother wasn't around. Buy here



  These are my three that I must see around the holidays. I catch other ones but I have to see these three and you do too. So make sure you have Amazon Prime so you get them in two days.  Don't have Prime? I got you covered with a free one month on me. Click here. Now if you're a student click here for six free months.

It's three things in life that are granted. Death, taxes and that my funk pop collection shall grow. It's not getting outta control but they need to start paying rent soon.  They're all over the place. Which brings me to this month. The Funk pops are starting to roll out now and I have my eyes on just a few. Gotta at least try to control me.  

 Funko Pop Books Santa Grinch
The quickest way for me to buy one is to have it on sale. This one just came out and it's already 7.81. You can't beat that with a hat. You know, he might have been on to something. Humans really do be too loud.  Buy Here

Movie/Book


  Funko Pop Movies: Elf-Buddy
Now you know you can't have one without the other. Even if they weren't in the same movie. They kinda were. Just think of Buddy as the little girl in the Grinch. Matches up, right? You're welcome.  Buy here

Movie. 





Funko Pop Movies: Christmas Vacation: Cousin Eddie/Clark 

Okay, we can go home.  It's nothing left to see here. We have found the greatest. Some of you might be too young to know about Christmas Vacation but trust me you need to see this movie series. The whole vacation series. Oh and the shitter's full.  Cousin Eddie (Buy here)/ Clark (Buy here). 

 Movie

 

 

Funko Pop Movies: Home Alone 

My house is about to look like I kidnapped all my favorite childhood characters. Which is funny cause I'm never the one to dress up the house but this year, let's do something new. Home Alone is the movie that never made me want to be home alone when I was that young. Robbers and having to cook yo own food. Nightmare. Kevin (buy here) / Marv (buy here) / Harry (Buy here). 

 Movie. 

Peanuts Charlie Brown Christmas Tree with Linus Blanket

Now it wouldn't be Christmas with the tree. The best tree of them all. The only tree you need around this time. Y'all got that tall tree and I'm just over here flexing, hard. I end up having to buy one each year since somebody always wants to have it. I really should stop letting people in my house. Pay homage to the goat. (Buy Here

 Movie

By this point, everything should already be in the cart and ready to go. Just don't forget the free two-day shipping. Don't have Prime? I got you covered with a free one month on me. Click here. Now if you're a student click here for six free months.

The purple one has been gone for too long and it only feels like yesterday. The world lost a good one. You will forever be missed. I told y'all earlier this week about the Prince "Hit'n'Run" Pop-Up Shop" and the things I got from it. If you haven't checked it out, I suggest you check it out. It's only here until December 3.  After that, it's gone forever. 

In that post, I talked about how I already have looked for at least two of the things I bought. Let's go ahead and lay this out for y'all.  

Vans,a Division of VF Outdoor, Inc.



 It's funny that the shirt I wasn't going to get at first, I ended up just getting two of them. I want to do some holes on one and some paint on the other one. I don't wanna mix the two. Like I first thought. This looks will be with the holes. 





Pile-lined Jacket 

Winter in Georgia is never as cold as the winter that travels up north. So to eighty-six a whole fur jacket seems to be the smart move.  For the time being at least. Imma gets my whole fur jacket off soon.  I love this one. It's the half biker and half fancy. That pretty boy that owns the bike that he never rides fast. Two miles an hour so everybody sees me.



Slim Low Joggers 

Maybe this is just me but I really loved the acid jeans when I was a kid. My childhood was in the 90's and early 2000's. So it wasn't any for me and my mom was the biggest of haters and was not about to get me any. She can't stop me now. I can wear all the acid I want. *Sticks tongue out* 




Leather Bracelet

Subtly is best. You wear this under the jacket and when you reach people see it. No need to throw it around in they face. Keep it cool. 


Vans Velvet SK8-Hi Reissue
Now, this has Prince name written all over them. Prince and Pimps. From Mississippi. Vans should have come out with this earlier.They would have been booming. All the players from far and wide. Man the scene was so thick. Low riders, seventy-seven Seville, El Dawgs. Nuttin' but them 'llacs. All the players, all the hustlers. I'm talking 'bout black man heaven heah, yknahmsayin', yeah. 

Pick up a pair. (Click the banner below)

The time that a lot of people have been waiting on is finally here. PUBG is coming to the Xbox. When I first made this post (Which I need to update. I been killing it.). People jump down my neck about how great PUBG is. This that and the third was said about this game and how I need to get it. I don't play games on the PC (Sorry) so that wasn't happening. Come December 12, I get to see what this hype is about.

Burger King‘s Mac n’ Cheetos are back with a twist. Following up on October’s spicy chicken nuggets, the popular side dish gets the “Flamin’ Hot” treatment.

Burger King announced the treat’s return. The company last offered the Mac n’ Cheetos earlier this year in a non-Flamin’ Hot variety. Fans even found them in the frozen food section, but this is Mac n’ Cheetos’ first spicy iteration.

Burger King has yet to put a date on the snack hitting stores but expect it to be sometime in the very near future.

Huge thanks to the Prince Estate. They have just made everybody holidays a lot better with this special Prince-themed “Hit’n'Run” pop-up shop

The T-shirts feature a range of graphic logos, images of Prince from his Controversy and Parade albums, a shot of the “Purple Rain” star holding a rose and more. The highlight piece comes in the form of a limited-edition hoodie, available in black, white and purple, that features embroidered “Prince 1999” text on the front. The white zip-up hoodie is also noteworthy and is embellished with a colorful graphic design on the back. The collection is rounded out with a dad hat, also available in purple, black and white, that is embossed with Prince’s famous “Love Symbol.”

You can check out all the things I bought and be sure to head over to the online store cause it's only here until December 3. 

Hit'n'Run.  


I never wear hats but this one had to add to the collection hanging off the whiteboard in my office. 


As of right now. I just have this one and the 1999 shirt. I'll probably be getting the  'Parade' t-shirt too. I already have a look in mind for this one already. 


Well, that didn't take long. I added the shirt. It's going home with me. I want to get creative on the shirt and add some holes and some purple words or something not too sure about it just yet. Actually, the look I have for the Prince with the roses shirt can be used for this one too.  

Make sure y'all check it out and don't miss out. Once it's gone you gonna be looking on eBay. High prices. 

Let me know what you end up getting.

 Having recently dropped its “Sub Rosa” collaboration with Bodega, Vans Vault has now released its latest capsule collection — “the stitch and turn pack.” Using two models, the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool, the main difference in this drop is the use of premium Italian leathers on the uppers, with the shoes coming in orange, maroon and two black versions.

Behind the leather upgrade, there’s also tonal stitching used on every shoe, as well as matching Vans branding on the side panel and heel tab. Each shoe is finished with the brand’s signature waffle sole unit.


Vans,a Division of VF Outdoor, Inc.  
You can buy the Vans Vault “stitch and turn pack” from select retailers such as Titolo.
