Play Time

by Vernon Forbes | December 08, 2014

Since the start of the brand over 2 years ago, I've been eager to introduce watches into our accessories listing. Everyone who knows me knows, I'm a big watch collector so it's a really big deal for me to be able design my own time pieces for my own brand. We will be releasing the first 2 pieces this coming Winter. Hopefully you guys love them and I can design many more to follow.

August

by Vernon Forbes | November 28, 2014

Today, I had a few customers hit me up to tell me they saw R&B singer August Alsina rockin' a Players Preferred cap in some online magazine. Although he also lives here in Atlanta, I haven't met August as yet but I truly appreciate the love...it's a real good look.

"I must admit, I get a little annoyed when I hear people describe what I do for living as "He does t-shirts". For the record, I'm a designer...it is my God given purpose here on Earth. I've designed every item in this picture, but you won't be able to find these Nikes anywhere else (they are a 1 of 1). I designed them directly through Nike and even added the Players Preferred logo to them. All the other items can be found right here on the site

Clear the Hallways

by Vernon Forbes | October 07, 2014

 

A few years back, while going through the break up of a relationship that I knew had run it's course. I was feeling kinda low & wondering whether I should try to patch it up with my Ex or move on with my life. I came across a preacher on TV while randomly channel surfing and he said "Sometimes God is trying to open new doors in our lives and move us into a blessing but we insist on holding on to what's familiar...what's comfortable. God won't open that new door for you while you've got your foot stuck in the old one, stopping it from closing. Trust God, move into your next door and clear God's hallway." Best advice I've ever taken, I met my wife Kenisha just months later.
