It's Egyptian Cotton. I don't think he was trying to make a point. The shit is just (relatively) expensive to make.
$17.50 wholesale bruh

he said relatively expensive. i mean, i can google plain cotton tshirts wholesale:

http://www.shirtchamp.com/sales.cfm

$1.49 bruh. relatively, the egyptian cotton is more than 10 times the price of a diamond supply type shirt. 

also, these are standardized fits. APC shirts are "cut n sew" meaning that some fancy french guy decided what the proportions are. this is an extreme example, but its like saying a picasso sketch should cost no more than the price of a piece of paper and a pencil. you're not buying a shirt. you're buying a name. if you don't get that concept, then nothing on HYPEbeast should make sense to you.

I'm not shocked. My point is that Yeezy proved he could sell cancer if he wanted to. The price doesn't shock me. I just feel that dudes are buggin for beasting over it. Hell, I could likely get my own Egyptian cotton and have a tailor make a one of one specifically for me and still not break $100.

JohnV.....I think I get what you're saying. Kanye wasn't TRYING to make a point. He inadvertently proved a point, but he wasn't going out of his way to do so. That's your point, right?


Still hardly justifies the price.

They used to, now it's all made in China and cheap as shit. And isn't Pima cotton the 'nicest' cotton?

In my opinion APC still produces the nicest fades, but the construction itself isn't that great.

I agree, they go for instant gratification (in terms of fading compared to many other brands). But they will fall apart much easier than they used to.

that is my point exactly. But also the fact that you can't really say that the price is because it's Kanye, cause like I said, a collab with someone else who is relatively unknown (compared to Kanye) is the same price. Also I'm pretty sure Kanye isn't deciding the price points of these items anyway. Bottom line is APC is high to begin with, so this shouldn't be a surprise.

LOL like this cornball psuedo-revolutionary hadn't already been doing that for a while. Cacs and asians eat him up though. Hype isn't nothing new; he didn't prove shit. His name could be attached to virtually any product and he'd make it a must-have overnight.

No different then when ASAP linked up with Black Scale and all that shit sold out within minutes. All of these brands do the same shit. 

I'm just disappointed he picked such basic ass items, he could've done minimalism in a more guccier way.

Supima and Egyptian cotton (Extra Long Staple) both grow on certain regions of the world, ELS cottons are more absorbent, yielding vibrant colors that are more fade-resistant than other types of cottons.

Egyptian cotton (ELS) include Giza 45, Giza 70, Giza 87 and Giza 88 (etc),  which is the type of cotton Visvim uses for some of their shirts, in quality they share very similiar aspects to Supima cottons. Some other japanese companies use this cottons to make basic t-shirts which are price fairly around 50 usd - 60 usd,  MADE IN JAPAN.

Cotton that grows on Egypt is Egyptian cotton but not necessarily ELS cotton which is the example of this Kanye hip hop shirt. 

ELS cotton from Egypt is indeed some of the finest and strongest cotton in the world. However, it's important to make the distinction between cotton that's simply "from Egypt" and cotton that can call itself ELS cotton. If you want an example every garment that uses GIZA cotton carries a tag saying so, I believe.

Back to this thread subject: This capsule colection isn't using ELS egyptian cotton so if you're thinking you're buying the best cotton Kanye just played a big joke on you. I'm not saying you guys shouldn't buy this or something but I'd feel like a fucking mark.
