Even though I really didn’t know what to wear I decided to go with a streetstyle approach that also featured different forms of art on clothing so see below as I break it down! Please note that this blog post uses affiliate links and banners.
This is definitely one of if not my most expensive t-shirt but the detailed artwork and overall quality definitely makes it work it. This is a special t-shirt that features hand-illustrated graphics by artist Philip Burke for a limited collaboration between Virgil Abloh’s luxury streetwear brand Off-White and Air Jordan. The illustration is seen on both the front of the back and tee as it shows a young boy (like most of us) dreaming to be like Michael Jordan. It also features key signature Off-White branding.
Place of Purchase: Capsule Toronto, a sneaker boutique that was doing an online raffle and thankfully I actually won and this is my only raffle win from them (so far)! If you’re interested in Off-White & Jordan clothing then click here for Off-White and here for Air Jordan.
Price: $120 CAD
Continuing off of the sketch artwork/drawings I did have a pair that matched great with the t-shirt. These special socks give the feel of a variant cover and features Jim Lee’s sketch of one of the big bads of DC Comics, Darkseid!
Place of Purchase: EB Games, in store. However another place to get another cool socks, especially Darkseid, is Redbubble which you can shop here.
Price: I believe it was 2 for $20 CAD.
When it comes to the sneakers although it doesn’t continue the theme of sketch art it does feature some awesome art. This sneaker is called the Air Jordan 34 low “Print”. The reason why is because it does feature print that were seen or similar to retro Air Jordan models (primarily the 7s). What should be noted is that these prints are undoubtedly influenced by West African tribal patterns. I love the fit and overall aesthetic of the sneaker, it definitely catches people’s eyes when I am wearing them in photos or in person. Stay tuned for a review for a potential video and definitely more pictures!
Place of Purchase: Footaction Toronto, in-store. Unfortunately, it is hard to get this model for retail but you can shop other Air Jordan models here.
Price: It’s funny that I got a lot of compliments for this sneaker because I always liked it but was also a bit worried about the plate and a lot of people were skipping on these. Turns out, nothing to worry about and thankfully this was available at my local mall for 25% off which came up to roughly $170 CAD if I am not mistaken!
The last piece to these are the pants and I wasn’t too sure what to wear but I wanted to be comfortable and also something that complimented the other pieces. That’s why I actually came across these cargo pants I got from Forever21 years ago that still fit. It also works out because I’ve noticed that actual painters now do wear cargo pants so it does pay a certain homage to that.
Place of Purchase: Forever21, online. However, if you are looking for other fast fashion alternatives that are a bit more modern and stylish you can check out Zaful or SHEIN. For male options at SHEIN, click here and for girls click here. For Zaful female cargo pants click here, and for men click here.
Price: $21 CAD.
