So, Derrick Barnes(my real name) age 16, has the most money I have had to myself in my short lifetime which is 490$. Very suprising amount since I was aiming for only 170$....

Now, I need to manage my money for my next cops/purchase, so I would like to put my fellow HB'ers in my position....

Basically, what would you get if you had 490$ or 500$ to spend?

I have decided on copping LP's the cool, Alicia Key's As I am, a hoody and 1 pair of denim from H&M....thet rest is still in my thought process...

That altogether will probably leave me with 394$...

Feedback. THX.

1. take the music off your list. Download limewire (for free) and then download those albums (along with those recommended in the classic/slept on albums thread...for free).
2. Follow kicks advice and get a new cologne. I'd add jean paul gaultier to the contenders list.
3. Go ahead and get the new winter coat. It's end of the season sale time so deals are everywhere.
4. Forget the playoffs. You'll be able to find them for awhile, and later you might be able to trade for them and not spend anything. Check the for sale listings on ISS/NSB and get some cheap older heat that every kid at your school won't be wearing.

here is my advice...

trust me, im almost twice your age...

i know about grown man b-i...











find ONE $490 tee, and cop it. even if its plain, cop it and put that hoe in the closet. NEVER WEAR IT... I mean c'mon, its a four hundred and ninety dollar tee shirt.

On the cologne tip. It's really a personal thing that depends on your taste. Like some people love Aqua Di Gio but for me I get nauseated when I smell it. You should just go to the counter and test out some different scents and get something you like.

Personally, I like the new Tom Ford that dropped recently, but thats just me.

^Naw, I aint ODin off denim until I get a job, and plus Im still learning about denim, how to take care of em and etc....So before I drop a couple bills on some denim, Ima gather as much info as possible...

Ima just chill with a pair of H&Ms and these DC jeans got for Christmas which stacks and fits oh so well(very suprising)..

Thx for the advice everyone....

Damn Hunter, you lucked out on that one, $10 for an M-65 but what the hell you doing all the way up in Frederick?....I want to go to Social Study, but that is a long ass ride...I thinking about just chillin out in DC for shirts(Cmonwealth, UATW in Gtown, Palacefive etc) or go out to Elite or cop some stuff on Karmaloop...

American Apparel, hmmm there's no stores currently in DC area I know of that carry it....So Ima have to check out the online selection...

Issey M, how do they usually run for?

And the playoffs, lol, no where in site, most are sold out I guess....So Wtaps probably are going to be my best.

It don't matter if you like it, as long as the ladies do. Issey has a 100% kill rate.

^ Not really, but I did an 11th grade paper on the seductive ingredients of colognes and actually had a pretty conclusive tests with various colognes and it came on top.


Dont listen to him.. you dont wanna wear the cologne of frat guys world wide

The 3 things a man needs in life regardless:

1. Good cologne arsenal
limit your choices to any POLO for a classic scent, Acqua de Gio, and Issey Miyake

2. Clean clothes
Get something that will last a decade and you can still wear

3. Swagger
this costs the most, i suggest you read Poor Dad, Rich Dad cuz after you do your whole world will start at that day.cool Or I can teach you the ways for a small fee.

A nice jacket can also add to swagger. Keep in mind though that nice doesn't equate to expensive. Think classic yet hip.

After you have fulfilled these 3 cardinal rules, save the rest cuz you know something great is bound to come out.

-Peace be with you.


The books actually called Rich Dad, Poor DAD. I had to read it for a business class....good stuff. You should defiantly cop that. Everything else he says is on point too.

P.S. Add Marc Jacob to the cologne list.

last time i checked Takoma Park was in NW. NW = UPT. UPT = UPTOWN. Therefore Takoma = UPT. lol, and dont get it twisted, ALOT of shit happens in the in SPC/TKP that ppl dont hear about cuas we dont air our shit out like that. I've lived everywhere from Benning Rd NE ta 16th st Adams Morgan so all of DC is my "hood"

but yeah, NW is the place ta shop. you might want ta just wait a lil while and hit up the Stussy flagship store when it opens this month. itz gonna be near commonwealth

Oh yeah I just was debating about Takoma park being in Md instead of DC...yeah your right but calling takoma park a hood is false, there's no hood bout that place. The entire NW isn't upt though, just along Georgia Ave's strip and the different areas that run of it.

I spend a lot of time DC since I go every 2 weeks to pops house but I am very more of a PG baby but yeah...

I may wait until the STussy store open up cause I surely wonna check it out, thanks

I need a jacket as well

As always appreicate the advice.
