OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #516
By Gavin Jewkes, 13 July 2015
If your mates diss your forward-thinking style on the reg, do as Kanye does and throw on a go-to-hell kimono in the knowledge that they’re just jealous of your powerful steez.
Yeezy’s wraparound cardigan is a non-threatening take on the kimono – an increasingly popular piece of summer outerwear for sartorially intrepid guys – that comes in on-point camel with some pleasingly Luke Skywalker-inspired details (note the robe-like structure and belt). Draped over a plain white crew-neck tee and a pair of his signature black skinnies, Kanye’s look shows how easy it is to wear this item if you keep the rest of your outfit clean and stripped back.
N.B. There’s another word for kimonos… and it’s this: ‘gofuku’. That’s what we’ll be calling them from now on.
