Yes, Rocawear. I remember having this navy Rocawear polo shirt that I thought was the coolest piece ever. Ahhh,the good ol’ days.

bkxxiv: In one of your recent posts on UH yeezy was wearing john Elliott sweats and a gray pull over. Can you please provide the name of the designer for the gray pullover? Greatly appreciated!

The sweatshirt Kanye West is wearing is by VenusxMars. This unisex line is inspired by the glory days of Star Wars, Star Trek, and the Jetsons. The pullover sweatshirt ($380) features raised ribbed detailing at the shoulder and chest with raw unfinished frayed sleeves. Stay tuned for more on the full collection. See it here.

Anonymous: Why didn't you own anything from the first KanYe x APC collection ? Thought you were a fan of KanYe's style

You can still be a fan of someone without buying into everything they sell. But to answer your question, there wasn’t anything from the first collection that really moved me. 

Anonymous: Hey Allen first of all you are the best dressed individual in the world and please keep doing what your doing. Could you possibly start showing your outfit that your wearing like every other day or once a week? I would be nice to see what you wear on a regular basis.

Wow..Thanks! Yes, I will do what I can but most of the time I am out and about solo. I cant turn the camera on myself…lol

Anonymous: Leather pants for men. Go or no go? most rappers would probably say go, but not everybody sees eye to eye on it, what is your opinion?

I’m well aware of how leather pants for men were perceived in the past as well as how it’s stigmatized now, due to its overwhelming popularity over the last couple years. Still, I don’t see a problem with men wearing leather pants. I feel that it’s a great alternative and if you can wear it and have it not wear you, then do so. However, by no means are they an everyday wear and should be worn sparingly. My only disclaimer would be that unlike denim jeans or sweatpants, leather pants do not work for every man, your body type, styling, and self-confidence all play important parts in executing the look.
