By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

We talk with New Orleans rapper Alfred Banks (aka @UnderDogCentral) about his River Kings 2 Tour of “The Beautiful” (happening now!), his music career and his take on personal style. Banks loves shopping at resale stores like Buffalo Exchange because it gives him the freedom to build his style from the ground up.

What do you like about shopping resale and Buffalo Exchange in particular?

For me, the hunt of finding something so cool among the shelves of a resale store like Buffalo Exchange really excites me. Putting an outfit together from a complete blank canvas is awesome.

How did you get started shopping at Buffalo?

I’ve always lived close to Buffalo Exchange down here in NOLA, so one day in 2007, I just decided to walk in and see what you guys had. Ten years later, I still walk in all the time.

You’ve travelled all over the US. What’s your favorite Buffalo you’ve shopped at?

My favorite Buffalo has to be here in NOLA. The one in Austin is really cool, but nothing compares to my hometown.

What’s been your favorite Buffalo find recently?

Recently, I found a pair of High Top K-Swiss Midcourts and they are so dope. Awesome color way and super comfy.

Let the Good Times Roll: Mardi Gras Traditions

By Buffalo Exchange New Orleans

Each January, the New Orleans Buffalo Exchange starts getting ready for the magical Mardi Gras traditions of Carnival Season, which runs from January 6th (Kings Day or Epiphany) through Mardi Gras (translation: Fat Tuesday). Basically, it is a period of celebration before the fasting of Lent. Carnival season can be as short as four weeks or as long as nine weeks, depending on when Easter falls. For 2017, Mardi Gras falls on February 28th.

So, whaddaya say we get that turntable spinnin’ and drop the needle? Without further ado, we present the best music of 2016.
