Not to mention we saw tons of fantastic style finds and major outfit inspiration from Buffalo Exchanges across the country. So, before we bid adieu, we’ve rounded up our top Instagram posts of the year. 2017 style resolutions, here we come!

Meet Our Team: Mykull London aka Michael Borum

By Buffalo Exchange Los Angeles (Hollywood)

Buffalo Exchange Hollywood buyer expert Mykull takes us through his closet and how his personal style has grown.

My personal aesthetic, I would describe, is a trendy culture clash. It’s a mix of indigenous basics and uniquely crafted leather goods. Many of my leather goods are a great juxtaposition to the simple and fluid clothing I wear. If it isn’t leather, I don’t want it!

YouTuber Lynette Cenee featured Buffalo Exchange

“TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE MONEY AND SHOP FOR FREE” BY LYNETTE CENEE

YouTuber Lynette Cenee featured Buffalo Exchange in “How to shop for free” on March 12, 2015: “…I always go into Buffalo Exchange…it originated in Tucson, so I’ve actually been doing this before I moved to LA…one amazing thing is they do buy stuff that doesn’t have to be in season. … you can take stuff that you still maybe might really like, but that you don’t wear super often, and you know that you could potentially  get another piece that you will wear a lot. … So that’s why I say ‘how to shop for free,’ because you can buy a couple pieces, trade it in, and then have all of this to chose from [clothing and accessory items at Buffalo Exchange La Brea]. … for me personally I always pick the trade, because that’s how I shop for free—trading in all my old stuff. …”

LA has all of the fun, all of the time. From all black ensembles to floral kimonos—Angelenos always look the part! Leather jackets are in no short supply with us being close to the world famous Melrose/Fairfax shopping strip. Girls play it up with bold floral pieces and knee length skirts. Angelenos make their presence known on the always sunny streets of LA with the best accessory: confidence!

40th Tour: LA (La Brea)

By Buffalo Exchange Los Angeles (La Brea)

Buffalo Exchange

It was a beautiful day at Buffalo Exchange on La Brea! Celebrating 40 years of business, shoppers showed up to take in all of the fabulous curated vintage and western clothing inside of our 1969 Airstream. Stepping into the trailer, shoppers were treated to a stimulating arrangement of clothing spanning several decades: leather, fringe, suede, and the best polyester filled the racks. Smiles were in no short supply. Our smallest customer of the day, Khali, brought laughter and lots of positive energy to everyone around her! She showed up in style and added a fantastic new blouse to her collection. It’s good to start collecting great clothes at a young age. She told us she is off to Ohio in a few weeks and we hope she packs what her parents purchased for her trip. Other customers shared stories of being from Tucson, where we originated forty years ago, and the cause of this tour celebration. Los Angeles, we had a blast meeting and chatting with you as you came and checked out our trailer. We sincerely appreciate you stopping by and chatting with us. We hope you found some fabulous pieces! Cheers to another 40 years.
