2012 is the year of the oxford without question but Harry’s of London keeps it creative! All of our followers know how much we love creativity… Harry’s of London takes the Reagan Graphite oxford and goes against the grain by adding a rubber “sneaker-esq” sole, very New Vintage.

LA Emcee Casey Veggies has a banger with his “Euphoria III" single from his Customized Greatly Vol. 3 project. Veggies continues to keep it creative, its also refreshing to hear a youngster that knows his history…”Where that old school Vandross when you need it?”
