Fans Lash Out At Kanye For Selling $2 T-Shirts For $92 At “The Life of Pablo” Pop-Up Stores

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West is reportedly selling $2 T-shirts for $92 at his The Life of Pablo pop-up store in London.

Fans queued for hours in the British capital’s trendy Old Street for a chance to buy some of the limited edition merchandise over the weekend.

Not everyone has left the shop a happy customer though, as one furious fan told British newspaper The Sun he felt he had been duped.

While the T-shirts may look like the real deal, on closer inspection the labels inside the $92 tops revealed they were printed on Gildan ultra cotton T-shirts, which the newspaper discovered retail for less than $2.50 online.

“I queued up for hours to get in to Kanye’s shop and I was so excited to get one of the limited edition London T-shirts,” the customer moaned. “However, I’m not so excited about my purchase now I know it’s basically a cheap T-shirt with a print. I’m gutted, to be honest.”

Fans in the U.S. also shared their dismay at the apparent lack of quality in the merchandise, with one tweeting, “We are here, p**sed the #KanyeWest #pablo Clothing is cheap fabric, what a rip off, wasted time.”

Items on sale at the pop-up stores include T-shirts and hoodies, with some emblazoned with Yeezy’s name or his album title, The Life of Pablo, spelled out in the same Gothic font used by artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt on the rapper’s previous merchandise.

    lol you bought it to realize that it was printed on cheap shirts lol. Every company uses those shirts. kanye made y’all feel dumber by leaving the evidence on the shirt as opposed to removing the labeling.

      • STEPH

        You can’t knocked the hustle, if you dumbass stand in line and you pay $92….then it’s your dumba– fault.

      • cza jones

        I would never be caught dead at his show, so a 90+ shirt is out of the question. I said its a problem for the above mentioned labels not for me.

      • STEPH

        Lmao! You must’ve been one of those clowns who stood in line,, and feel “gutted” Lmao! Way to go Ye.

        FOOL VERSACE TEE SHIRTS ARE MADE CHEAP AS WELL, THOSE SHIRTS DON’T COST 3 BUCKS TO MAKE BUT THEY GO AS HIGH AS $800 FOR A PRINTED TEE SHIRT!!!

    Im confused people are mad because their 95 dollar tee shirt isn’t real? 95 dollars on a tee shirt and they’re upset about it beign a cheap knock off? So the real tee shirt would be ok for 95 dollars?

    Man i wonder about some humans.

    Buy for a dollar, sell it for two. That’s the name of the game. Nobody told those eternal d*ck riders to buy the product. Last I checked you see the merchandise before you pay. Chalk this article up to AHH trying to drum up fake outrage against Yeezy for winning. Get a real story you dumb f*cks. 😂😂😂

    Smart move by kanye after only 3 sells his already in the profit range this is like nipsey hussle with his 100$ mixtape

    This is how the WHOLE fashion industry eats. Get over it or shop at target, they won’t price gouge and it’s the same material.

    • water_ur_seeds

      GENUINE high price fashion labels, not wack labels like Kanye’s, but brands like D&G, Versace, MCQ and Balenciga, etc whilst still ridiculously overpriced, are still alot higher quality than standard cheap tee’s… I got a couple tee’s that I can wash 100x over and they still look and fit like brand new, whilst I got some cheap tees in the past, that after one wash loose their shape, fade or bobble etc and are ready for the scrap heap… Some brands, like it seems Kanye’s claim to be a high price ‘fashion labels’ but in reality are not, and use nothing more then cheap material scamming people…

    Ain’t even mad at Kanye on this on…his die-hards are just dumb than a MF…
    Kanye in the back, ripping open a fresh 5-pack of Hanes tees with a magic marker, like:

    “Here, take these, write “Pablo Pablo Pablo” on the front, and put them out on the rack. They’ll sell. Trust me.”

    kanye couldve atleast took the gilden tags out the shirts smh i understand whoesale prices are cheap but people expect quality from someone who claims to be the king of the fashion industry…im not a fan either im just speaking my mind

    That mess look horrible. For somebody who is supposed to be fashion god that mess look corny. I don’t want to hear no more carrying on about fashion. Cheap print tees and old 90’s guess sweaters.

    Freaking idiotas. Find some young aspiring fashion designer, head to Walmart and purchase 10 Gildan tshirts and come up with a design. There you have it. Your own clothing line. Only thing Kanye have on you is he’s famous. Other than that, you mofos are using the same damn tshirts. You can even lower your prices and you know what, you’ll still lose out to Kanye. Not because his is better but because it’s Kanye. That’s why the pop-up shops were “popping” it’s Kanye bumbaclots. He didn’t dupe anyone. You duped yourselves… lol
