On the most recent email blast I noticed a Yeezus crewneck at ASOS and when I searched “Yeezus” over at ASOS.com there were a few new arrivals.
At first I was excited to get the crewneck version of my favorite tee but once I hit “Zoom?” Aww naw. There aren’t as many colors or layers or details, in short— it’s just not the same. To further complicate things, when you check out the item info, the brand is ASOS… not Kanye West, or Yeezus or Donda which makes me worry that these are unlicensed replicas. You’re probably thinking, “Why would a legit company do something like that?” Well, remember how many times Topshop and Rihanna went back and forth when they straight up made tees and dresses with her face on them?
Take a look and lemme know what you think:
Here’s the jacket listed as “ASOS Bomber Jacket in Jersey with Yeezus Print,” $58.69
Here’s the “ASOS Oversized Sweatshirt with Yeezus Print,” $55.03
Here’s the “ASOS Skater Long Sleeve T-Shirt With Yeezus Print” that’s also available in black for $38.68
No word yet if this is a “Yeezus merch at PacSun” situation or if these are straight up fakes but if Kanye doesn’t tweet, I guess we’ve got our answer.
All I really wanna know is, does this matter? Would you still wear the ASOS version? For reference, here’s a pic of the original concert tee by Wes Lang
