Barely Broke Intellects Presents Charcoal Summers 2011

Summer is here and Barely Broke Intellects brings you a befitting “Charcoal Summers”.  Before technology advanced and propane grills became prevalent, there was Charcoal, an esoteric aspect to the traditional BBQ.  Tracing the element of cut and sew to the smallest detail, we have invited a nostalgic Charcoal into each piece on a multi-faceted creative level.  In fact, we even brought on some woman’s pieces to compliment our very intricate well-crafted men’s garments.  If a summer can ever be more complete, men and women can now unite through their Intellect, dressed accordingly because Charcoal is the new black!

Interview With Swagg Magazine

 We hit Melrose for our interview with Swagg Magazine, the interview actually came about at the DunkxChange, the owner of the magazine (Apple) came to the booth and instantly loved the brand and purchased a nice amount of pieces and invited us to do a feature a couple days after.
 Laying out the set up for the interview.
 The Infamous 'Bedrocks" were a favorite this season. Hand crafted cuts were what set it off in my opinion.
 We had a stylist just fresh from Memphis, Tennesse help out with the decor for the cover page of the article.

 Seen a dope LA lifestyle shot , so you know your boy had to get his photography on.
Darron getting his network on , shoutout to everyone at Swagg Magazine for having us.

DunkXChange (LA EDITION)

 4th time we were blessed to set up a booth at the annual DunkxChange and by far was the best one thus far we have attended. The show was Headlined by Pusha-T and a huge opening performance by one of my favorite artist Epic.
 The love was flowing to the booth. Everyone seemed to have heard of us that came to the booth, so are LA presence must be notable.
 My good friend Raze one also set up next too us and brought out some heaters!!! My kick game is weak but this dude most def is on point in the department.
Stage before Epic gave a monumental I must say, performance got everyone feeling a breath of fresh air according to a lot of attendees that were really taken by his song selection.
 Darron of BBi doing what he does best and knocking out an interview with some press.
 Shoutout to our new Marketing Director Kareem as well for coming through and holding us down.
It was only right i got in the mix real quick and fold some shirts like a young slave. But the love i must say was amazing.
