Water bottles & water ice was all I could think about during this 90 degrees day I picked to attend the Brooklyn flea. It was my first time but I have been hearing about it for awhile now so I was excited to see what the hype was about. Because of how humid it was I could feel the energy was low but I still enjoyed myself more then usual because I came with Erik Honesty of Cultured Couture Vintage & Ali of AnobleSavage. Being with the two of them gave me more insight on different things to look for that I might have overlooked. Check out some of the pics from my Day at the Brooklyn Flea market.-KRT

Nail art, a lot of polish, and paintbrushes done by NailTite of Philadelphia was vending for the first time.

If I had room I would have taken one of these back home with me.

Some vintage pieces I thought were very intriguing

Street Kings: 1.) Cerebral Vortex who is a electronic rapper 2.) ran into my buddy Rich of whatrealpeoplewear 3.) Jamerson of SWRVBIZ from Philly

Cool things

Right after the BK Flea we went pass to holla at our good friends over at the BKCircus.

Kamouflage Concept Store is hosting it’s Annual fashion show in the center court of Cheltenham Mall.  The theme of this year’s show is “Love Our Wave”. The word “wave” is synonymous with “swag”, or style. With all of the senseless violence that has plagued our communities for the last few years Kamouflage Concept Store, plans on highlighting positivity in our community  & share this through fashion, art, music, young entrepreneurship, &  family values.

The day’s activities will begin with Cheltenham Mall’s Father Child Look- Alike Contest, followed by musical entertainment. KCS will host a “Pop-Up Art Gallery”  & social mixer, that will lead up to the main event. Some of Philadelphia’s most talented poets will be introducing the Fashion Show, & Peace+Love, a Philadelphia based non-profit that raises awareness on the issue of violence will be a part of the days activities, closing out the fashion show with a message of peace and non-violence.

Every first Sunday of the month Shaheed Rucker of Changemakers Org & Gianni Lee of Babyloncartel & myself host a social mixer called Arts, Beats & Eats. We like to bring out the best in our attendees from choices of music, conversation & even style. So I have been featuring the best dressed male every Sunday on my blog for a style feature called Arts, Beats & Eats Best Dressed (Check out last month’s winner Tony “Munch” Rogers)

This month’s winner is no stranger to Arts, Beats & Eats. I have been noticing the Mt Airy native Brad Pointer‘s creative fashion sense for quite some time. I like to judge style based on details, overall swagger, improvement, originality & in his case consistency. Brad is a current student at Penn State University (Berks Campus) majoring in Kinesiology and minoring in Business Management. He likes to make his own customary adjustments to his wardrobe to bring his appearance above the average look. He plans to start a clothing line with his fellow colleagues in the near future while pursuing a career in Personal Training with a desire of operating his own Health and Fitness practice in the future.

Vest: Old Navy Vintage Shirt: Levis Jean Shorts: Lucky Brand Shoes: Adidas Nza Shell Mid Watch: Breitling Chain: Ambush Pow Necklace
