Paa Tee moved to Pittsburgh from Ghana a few years ago. He is always on the prowl for the latest fashion and his dapper take on street style is inspired by his hometown of Accra, Ghana (the capital city) and US hip-hop. His biggest influences include Kanye West, Luce, A$AP Rocky and Pharrell Williams.

Why do you like shopping at Buffalo Exchange?

I always get great finds for great prices. I also love that Buffalo Exchange is community-driven and dedicated to giving back.

Any style advice for others?

Believe in yourself. Don’t be afraid to be innovative and go against the grain.

Buffalo Exchange Pittsburgh @Anna_Maleev

Anna Maleeva is a Russian-American fashion blogger. Her obsession with shoes, bright colors and prints has taken her to the forefront of the Pittsburgh style scene. When it comes to personal fashion, she loves trying new things and taking risks and often builds her outfits from the ground up –starting with her shoes!

Why do you like shopping at Buffalo Exchange?

I love resale shopping because you never know what you will find – a lot of unique items that aren’t in stores anymore or, if they are in stores, the price doesn’t break the bank.

Any style advice for others?

BE YOURSELF, wear what you like, be creative. Don’t take fashion too seriously – have fun with it!

The Goods: Buffalo Exchange Pittsburgh

By Buffalo Exchange Pittsburgh

Perhaps the most exciting part of working for Buffalo Exchange is the thrill of the buy counter. Our inventory is constantly changing and we get to see a wide variety of clothing brands and styles EVERY SINGLE DAY. The Buffalo Exchange Pittsburgh store is no exception to this rule: since we first opened our doors a year and a half ago, we’ve built strong relationships with regular sellers to keep exciting pieces coming through our doors. Today, I’d like to share some of the pieces we recently had in store that we as a team are very excited about!

Derek, one of our Buyers here at Buffalo Exchange Pittsburgh, loves creating displays and putting outfits together. Here, he’s wearing an H&M micro-print airplane button-up and the coolest pair of Scotch & Soda cargo shorts EVER. Having fun and exciting men’s items in our inventory is a top priority, and these two pieces definitely fit the bill!

The Perfect Prada Shades

Best Music of 2016

Written & illustrated by Joe Carrel, Buffalo Exchange HQ

What do you get when you’re a music fan AND a stat nerd?  66 music “Best Of”s distilled to one consensus list to rule them all.

There are, of course, drawbacks to cobbled-together selections like this, what with their common denominator-ness. But it’s similar to the annual nominees for Best Picture – while your favorite may not be on the list, it’s still a good snapshot of what’s making an impact at the time. So, whaddaya say we get that turntable spinnin’ and drop the needle? Without further ado, we present the best music of 2016.

  1. PINEGROVECARDINAL

This album made it onto 26% of Best Of lists and 3 Top Ten lists.

Before you start, you’ll need to gather your supplies. We found a red sweater at Buffalo Exchange and the rest at the craft store. If you don’t want to purchase a new sweater, you can cut costs by recycling any color sweater from your closet. We spent a total of $30 on this project and about 30 minutes making it.
