Judge Alanzo Dale: Mr. Brooklyn himself. Big Al, Alito’s way or Al the Dancer who never has a problem taking fashion risks. As a professional dancer, promoter and former retailer, Al has the Brooklyn style depth of Big Daddy Kane wrapped into Biggie, with a dash of Isaac Hayes and a touch of Jay at his best. Did we mention he may possibly be Brooklyn’s most recognized socialite, yep! The BKc Style & Character Challenge, is coming . . .
Before we proceed with the second round of contestants in The BKc Style & Character Challenge, we’d like to open the floor to our current pool of readers to now appoint 5 judges. Here is a lead on some of the pre-qualified judges for The BKc Style & Character Challenge, let us know your thoughts. Yep! The BKc Style & Character Challenge, coming soon . . .
Judge Adam Rodgers: UK born Brooklyn resident, Illustrator and Ralph Lauren designer
We get stopped on the streets often by people who read the blog or shop at the stores, we are always more than happy to chat with you about style, culture and The Brooklyn Circus- no politics please!. Therefore do not hesitate to say what’s up or give us your feedback on what we are doing, we are pretty thick skinned. One of the most common questions is about the tools we use to blog, we’ll post more once we do an actual inventory of what we use daily. Hope this post answers some of your questions. Yep! The Brooklyn Circus, experience is everything . . ..
The Best unpublished pics of 2008: We shoot so many pictures, that often times we have too little time or a lack of subject to post a pic under. But of course they are all important to us, so many see the archive and never make the blog. With the look book project set to hit the stands I am sure we will find lots of reasons to publish many of our unpublished pics. Yep! The Bkc awards you . . .

“How to move a couch in Brooklyn”. Since we earn a living on our creativity, we thought it was only right to feature other creative individuals who do the same. These dudes prove that Brooklyn is spilling over with creativity.

Greetings from The Brooklyn Circus NYc . . .
A Bkc fan for years, we ran into him in Harajuku Japan while on a shopping break. We were as surprised as he looks. Love the expression, the message on the tee, his painters pants, the Nike vandals and the rolled up cuffs.
As we prepare for the challenge of the year, please take the time to meet the contestants and place your bids. In the weeks to come you will learn more about them and have the opportunity to take sides and decide who will take the pot, which will be valued at close to 5 thousand dollars if the universe aligns properly (don’t quote us yet), the ink has to dry on these contracts. We are in the process of closing deals with our respective sponsors to bring you a challenge like no other in the BKc blog sphere. For the record we are also accepting donations towards the prize bag to make this a challenge worth tuning into. Please stay tuned for more information. Yep! The BKc Style & Character Challenge 09 . . .
