While Air Force 1 lovers wait for the launch of SF AF-1 High and “B’More” SF AF-1 Mid, Nike has brought back the first iteration of the sneaker in a “Midnight Navy” colorway. Tumbled leather and ballistic mesh return to its high-cut upper while its strap and paracord combo also make a comeback. Its upper rests atop of the classic Air Force 1 sole unit drenched in gum coloring.

Retailing for approximately $180 USD, the Nike SF AF-1 “Midnight Navy” is currently available at select retailers

This some of that in the kitchen whipping.  You know I didn't know that fish and spaghetti was an actual thing that people eat together?  Like I thought it was just an odd ass rap line from G-Dep "When you ready? Shit, I was born ready. And I was already on fish and spaghetti". Apparently, it's a luxury thing. Just sounds nasty to me. One, I not that big on fish, unless it's fried. If it is fried, it better be catfish. No nuggets. 

I don't know. The angle of this lowkey makes it look like I'm eating fish. Whole. Anyways, This was something I just whipped in the kitchen. The plan was to make a burrito bowl. I had this nicely cut pork chop. With no bone. Laid it out to marinate. I just knew this was about to be some fine dining. Too bad I didn't check to see if I had anything to make the bowl. 

So now with my face on stupid. I had to think fast. I was ready to eat. That's how the "porkchopettii" came about. It's pretty simple. 

1 Porkchop
Nobbles. 
Parmesan cheese.

This where we jump off the meat rack. The sauce is homemade. I only cook two days a week so I can't phone it in on one of the two days. This the recipe I used.

 
,

First off. Glad to see you doing better Ric Flair. No sickness can keep your ass. You do the ass kicking. Now I don't know why God passed this along to me but allow me to pass it along to you. Chalk Line. Where were you when I was in high school? Actually, no. Where were you when I was in middle school. This is that shit that I needed. The ultimate flex.  It would have been bad in high school. Imagine walking into class with Ric Flair playing. I would have been the worst. 


HIgh School was around the time when the race car jackets were the thing to have. Everybody walking around with just any and every racing team. Not me, I watched NASCAR. I wouldn't be caught dead in nobody jacket. I only rock with two and two only.  Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon. Dale may he rest in peace died before I was in high school. His jackets really weren't something to be found at that time. Retro really wasn't (isn't?) a thing in NASCAR. 

So I was only rolling with the Dupont Gordon jacket. Which was fine with me. Plus I don't think my mother was going to buy two. 


Till this day this is still the hardest jacket. I just knew I was flexin' with this one. I had the shirt too. I never wore both at the same time. That would just be wild.  I had to get this one again. For history.


Which one do you like more? Ric or Jeff? The jackets, not the people. Cause we all know that's Ric Flair. Although Jeff does love hip hop. 

Anyways. Let me know on Twitter/Instagram what you picked up this week.

Yesterday I posted about Nike making AF1's. Not just any AF1's. Special Field Air Force 1 High. I have to give it to Nike.I didn't think you could ever get me to wear the Air Force one again. Probably cause I owned about a million pairs in 9th grade. We all were stomping in our Air Force ones. Jeem is not feeling them but I have tossed together what I will be wearing with them already. Already a month ahead. Stay ready you don't have to get ready. 

Speaking of already. I start with Lacoste. Always one for the color blocking this leads the look for me. Can be fancy and also laid back. With the color blocking and attention to the detail. This is an eye-catcher. 


Now, this has nothing to do with anything but H&M is having a sale. 50 percent off most items. These are not H&M, this Lacoste too



Like I said. It's just something about them that I can't explain why I have this love for them but I do. I will be going with the tan to play off the dark orange. Giving it some light and dark. It's going to be a great look. Too bad I can't wear it till November

This sweater kinda looks like something you see in a pumpkin spice commercial. Better yet, pumpkin spice with hella foam.

 With Nike’s infamous Air Force 1 model celebrating its 35th birthday this year, the brand is honoring the achievement with a new lineup of colorways for the Special Field Air Force 1 High. This time around, Nike is bringing “Total Orange,” “Black/Gum Medium Brown,” and “Rattan” looks to its military inspired boot. Much like previous models, the new SF-AF1 High is constructed with a combination of ballistic mesh and premium leather for the upper. Some of the silhouette’s notable features include the AF1 branding along the side, as well as the zipper that runs vertically down the middle of the boot. The look is finished off with Nike’s signature Air Force sole, which will help during the colder months due to its texture and build.

The three new colorways of Special Field Air Force 1 High are set to debut on November 2 on Nike’s web store and other retailers for $200 USD. This new set isn’t the only way Nike is celebrating the Air Force 1′s birthday.

We are in the last hour of the NBA 2k17 era. This is the end of this game for me. I won't be back. I turned in my jersey, I'm out.  I didn't play 17' that much. I don't know why. I loved the game I just seem to get caught up in zombies heavy. I'mma do more with 18'. Like, make it to more than one seasons in my career. I have never done that. Think the last time was 2K 13. That was like three seasons. I do be going deep into the seasons of MyGM. (Did you know it actually ends?)

This year Imma go deep. Let's do this NBA 2k18. 

 
,

Man, the rabbit holes I always find myself going down on the internet. I never know why I'm there but I always end up where I didn't start. Like today. I was watching some video about NBA 2k18 and ended up watching countless amounts of "IT" videos. I was watching videos about shit that wasn't in the new movie, that was worst in the book and all that. For no reason. Oh, I also read the book, yeah that's right here.  

Anyways, I went down another hole today. One that I have been meaning to slide into.  It started with GA Followers posting about the restock of the Nike Air Trainer (1996 Atlanta). I click the link and it's gonna be FCFS at Lenox Mall so count me out. Never that serious.


 That's not the hole I ran down. The one I ran down is the post that followed this one.  Sneaker boxes. The Shoe Game had this post asking about the way people store sneakers. Lots of savages still keep the sneakers stacked up in the OG box. I have too many shoes to do that. That's too much work. I use clear boxes with the drop down. I would be all day looking through the boxes to find the sneaker I need. I also found a box plug from this post too. 



 From that post, I landed on this post. This one got me to thinking. Do I need this right here? Have I passed the need for them? Cause looking at their website, the price would be too high. Too damn high. Plus with a number of sneakers I have. That might be too tacky.
 I'm in love though. I love what they have done with this. As somebody that has used a  shoe rack. I know (we) all know that them things are not made for sneakers. Shoe rack says it holds 30 and it ends up with 8.  I'm happy with the cheap clear boxes but I might get a couple of the shoe stacks. Get about three for the office. My favorite would be sold out. 

Makes sure you check out all the links and let me know what other sites I need to fall down into.

 I should have never read the book "IT" I should have gone to the movies and watched the new one like everybody else. I should have just let the original be the memory I have of "It". Nah, I had to read the book.

With all that being said. What's with the ending of the book? (If you read the book you know what I'm talking about) 😶🤡🤔

I owe this one dude from 7th grade the biggest apology. I just knew he had to be lying.

I want to start this off by saying thank you. Thank you to everybody that reads my blog. That followed the magazine for years and everybody that just found out about I. I don't get into the rooms I been in without y'all. Now, I would like to thank Tom Ford and the staff for putting on the amazing show this year. The show was great. Y'all made a dream come true and you didn't even know. Not the going to the show part. That was great. I'm talking about meeting one of my favorite Black Panthers, Chaka Khan. Everything Chaka. 

I also made a post about the show if you wanna watch the runway video.  

Anyways. I'm too hype about making this post. It's that luxury shit. I don't wear Tom Ford on the regular. Life is nice but not this nice. 



Y'all know me. I'm always on some Mississippi Pimp with no hoes cause I respect women look. So this one is right in my range. Not the wildest of colors. It pops without popping. Blacked out Cheetah print with the black pipping. This is love.

 At first I wanted to go with the white shirt for this one. After putting the whole thing together. Switched it out for the black. The black gives this look the Cheetah don't be seen look. Like if James Bond was getting hipper with his clothes. NOt gonna do the bowtie with this one. Just open the shirt a litle. Let the taco meat show.


Keep it clean with the pants. The evening jacket is fancy enough that you don't need to jump out the window with something that's just as fancy as the jacket. That's just gonna make you look tacky. 


Going back to what I just said. Keeping it simple. Lotion the feet and wear no socks. 


End with the little flex and boom. You just owned the room. 


Everything is from Tom Ford

A post shared by Javaris Squire (@thesquiretales) on

I Love 2017 so much.It's leading to this world where you see everybody doing things together. Everybody becoming best friends and doing karate in the garage. With the landspace as it is right now, it seems to be safe to come into worlds that are not of your own.  Vans have been killing it and this is just showing off. Getting the fashion idol that is Karl Lagerfeld and letting him do magic on some sneakers. 

What I love about it all is that he didn't hold back. He didn't cop out and just throw some checkers across and collect his money and go home.  Karl didn't come to play. Available 9.7.17

Shop Now


 I can't wait to give this bag to Princess. She about to be styling on everybody at school.  This has to be my second favorite piece from the collection.  This all black with the pattern is perfect for her. Giving her the high-class look while she still gets to stay 10.





 "Have you ever had shoes without shoe strings?". Now, this is the one I love most from the collection. The black leather with the white outing. You can give the biggest flex ever with these that shows off the famous Karl name.





Shop Now.

Also, make sure to follow me on Twitter & Instagram and let me know what you will be buying.

 Did you know that Mike Tyson used to pay Steve Fitch back in 1999 $300,000 to dress in fatigues and shout "guerrilla warfare" at all of his press conferences?

Anyways. 

I can't wait. I can't wait to finally get this new collection out to y'all. Look at me taking my time. I know everybody is mad but we putting some final touches on the collection. Trust me. It's gonna be worth the wait. Hang in there. Anyways. Somebody asked me what I wear on lazy days. I don't know what "lazy" days mean. I'm never lazy. Well, I try not to ever be. So I put together this since I was wearing it today. I seem to keep it more casual on Sunday. Fun fact: I wore this to the country club. 

This one is from our collection last summer. I made the promise to make some clothes that a lot of y'all can wear to school. So here we go. I have been doing good (If I do say so myself) of mixing the regular SanQuon with some mild SanQuon. This just a statement tee. So people know what's up. Let them know. 


Nah, you don't really understand the love I have for this jogger. I mean you don't. You really don't know. I remember I got some joggers that were kinda like these. They weren't from a big brand but I got them. Being not that big of a big brand, wanted to support another not so big brand. 

Talk about wasting money. I got the joggers and not only did they not feel right they almost cut my nuts off. Them things were tight. I forget the blog post I made on the blog but adidas saw it and hooked me up with these bad boys. Same size and everything. 


 H&M bracelets like always.  




At first, I was going to color block. Maybe some all black Tubular (Primeknit). Backed out of that idea and rolled with the EQT. Now the EQT has the same cloud foam as the QT racer. The cloud is so easy to clean. I wore them thinking I might get a game in. 


Nah. Everybody was too many swimming.
