Kanye West has been blasted for how expensive his PABLO clothing line is.
Kanye’s T-shirts are printed on Gildan shirts with Cali Thornhill DeWitt’s gothic lettering, Bangshowbiz confirmed.
While lifestyle website Highsnobiety.com claimed the shirts cost between $1.50 to $4 when purchased in bulk and wholesale.
The site added that when West’s bold logo is added to the shirts, “a Pablo T-shirt costs $55, a long-sleeve one is $75 and a hoodie for $108.”
This revelation of the actual cost of Kanye’s shirt brought the Famous rapper criticism from fans and critics; though an insider in his camp is refuting the accusation.
Speaking to the New York Post newspaper, the source said, “The sourcing has nothing to do with the aesthetics or the value of the line. To talk about the source of the shirt misses the point entirely. It’s like writing an article on how an artist sells a $50 canvas for $1 million. Pointless.”
Earlier this year, Kanye was called out regarding his fashion designs which some called “raggedy”. Kanye, who is famous for his Twitter rants, took to the social media app to share his displeasure at journalists and critics who opposed his creativity.
Kanye West tweeted, “All these journalists can give their opinions well these are mine … yes I believe in my ripped homeless sweaters!!!
“I don’t personally like suit jackets anymore.”
“I especially hate suit jackets on women… that was a groundbreaking idea 5 million years ago!”
“I feel we are so stuck in the past and tradition.”
“I like T-shirts and women in yoga pants… I live in LA that’s what people wear … not sure why someone would put a suit jacket on with that.”
Kanye also added that the fashion industry wasn’t sincere calling them “fake”.
“Fake Fake Fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake … just my analysis.”
