Kanye West Wore A $43 Dickies in Met Gala 2019 And Gets Crazy fans reaction: Many designers vying to have their creations make an appearance on the Met Gala. From Cardi’s menstruation dress to Harry’s earrings, last night was full of entertainment.
The simple jacket can be purchased from Dickies and is known as the “The Eisenhower Jacket”. It’s inspired by looks popularised during World War II.
The rapper paired the jacket with black pants and YEEZY Season 4 Military Combat Boots in the dark tone “Oil”
The 41-year-old understated look as a sharp contrast from his wife Kim‘s, who went for a wet mermaid look in a beaded latex Thierry Mugler dress which took eight months to produce, and was the first dress in 20 years Mugler has designed for his eponymous label, as confirmed in a Vogue Hommes Instagram post.
Kim also took to Instagram to showcase her outfit in a number of glamourous snaps:
And naturally, Kanye’s understated and affordable look didn’t go unnoticed by people on Twitter, with many individuals predicting a huge spike in sales for Dickies:
Dickies sales about to shoot up,thanks to kanye.
