The Versatile Jack Purcell

     When street co-exists with dapper, that is the Converse Jack Purcell. Let me bring you back to when I was still a little kid, when wearing Converse was just part of my wish list. I remember my first Converse shoes was a pre-owned sneakers from my aunt. and then I reached high school and it was still part of my shoe collection. When I started showbiz I was privileged enough to have Converse as my sponsor. Until just recently when I started my blog, my fashion sense had just evolved from being a hip-hopper to a dapper. Yea you read it right, I was into buggy, low-waisted pants back in the days. and now that I’m into suits and ties, I am still into Converse. I guess it’s in my blood or should I say its in everybody’s blood. That is what you call versatility at its finest. Trust me you will never go wrong with a classic pair of Converse Jack Purcell.IMG_0049 IMG_0003
