I don’t do crafts, I don’t paint, or bedazzle or glue or any of that shit. HOWEVER, with some simple items found around the home I took a 5 buck shirt and made it the coolest piece of clothing I own. In compiling my ideal wardrobe for the day that I am in fact BALLING, I stumbled upon the shirt above.

$90,000 Air Yeezy 2 t-shirt
Wilfry designed this shirt which features a bunch of platinum grey Air Yeezy’s on top of one another. The shirt is even more expensive than the highest-listed eBay price for the Air Yeezy 2s.
Peep this infographic to look at sales numbers for the Air Yeezy 2 since it dropped.
Something about living in the city (Chicago) and something about the warm weather makes me a complete bike junkie when I’m home for the summer. It’s cheaper than paying for the bus or filling up your tank; you get to weave through the various neighborhoods; and, for whatever reason, folks who ride their bikes around just seem more interesting.
As bike culture has seeped into the mainstream cyclist fashion has developed with it. The Chrome bike messenger packs, cyclist caps, and the fixed-gear bicycle are only a few examples. You can design a bike just as fly as any pair of Air Yeezy’s and improve your cardio using it. But the point isn’t about bikes. The point is about your pants, your trusty old blue jeans, your denims.
J. Crew will tell you that you can roll up your chinos to around the upper ankle. They’re right. GQ will encourage you to cuff your jeans to show some skin. Strong choice. But a move I’ve adopted that came from a practical need for cyclists to avoid snagging their pants in their bike chain is rolling jeans up to halfway up the calf or up to the knee.
Rolling up your pants gives your calves some room to breathe. It’s a more interesting look than simply a pair of shorts or sweating in pants down to your ankles. Since this is a NESCAC-focused Tumblr I’ll assume you own a pair of Sperrys. Roll your pants up and let the world see your Topsiders. A touch of East Coast prep meets a little bit of big city swagger and, look at that, they have a happy marriage.
On top of that, kicking around in more more flexible pants gives you the chance to do more in them. Jeans can be rigid or difficult but once the legs are rolled up you can hop on a bike, skateboard, run into Anna’s Taqueria before it closes, or whatever. The denim will break-in and show authentic wear that “speaks the volumes of your life” (or whatever the raw denim ads say) — not like that fake Abercrombie shit.
Pair it up top with a tank or a fitting, breathable, shirt, and you’ll be golden. If you’re like me and have big calves, this is a great chance to fish for compliments about your lower-legs. I mean, it’s a medical fact: chicks dig great calves.
