Even In the Midst of a Twitter Feud, Kanye Can Appreciate Wiz Khalifa's High-Level Pants Game

Jan/27/2016 at 03:28 PM ET

Right now, we are in the midst of one of the greatest Twitter feuds of our time. Yes, greater than the time Kanye West was mad at Jimmy Kimmel. Yes, greater than the time Kanye West was mad at Fern Mallis. Yes, even greater than the time Kanye West was mad at in-app purchases.

Father of two and sometime fashion designer West is currently in a multi-Tweet battle with Wiz Khalifa over a subtweet Khalifa gave him regarding the upcoming album Waves. And while we’ll let the scholars get into the meaning of it all, we need to dissect what’s really important here, and it’s this: West loves pants so much that he took time out of his rant to compliment Khalifa’s (even granting him a hashtag, #wizwearscoolpants). Let’s investigate.

The hour is almost upon us when the “best album of all time” will finally be released to the masses and our ears can all bask in the beauty that is Kanye West‘s Waves. But until that fated day arrives, Kim Kardashian West has been dutifully putting in her hours at the recording studio, keeping her husband company and posting a slew of supportive selfies with her sisters as proof. But her latest Instagram post has us all wondering, could these be pieces from Kanye’s other hotly anticipated project, Adidas x Yeezy Season 3?

7 Times Kanye West Was a Fashion Visionary (in Honor of His GQ 'Most Stylish Man' Status)

Dec/30/2015 at 09:30 AM ET

We admit we were a bit surprised when Kanye West was named GQ‘s most stylish man of 2015. (He was voted No. 1 by readers!) But then we did a deeper dive into West’s year in style. Between his memorable quotes, his Yeezy Season 2 debut, his kontrol over Kim’s kloset and his dedication to deep-V shirts, we’re starting to understand why he landed on top.

If you need more convincing, check out highlights from the star’s stylish year below.

Kanye West's Yeezy Boots Win 'Shoe of the Year' Award

Dec/03/2015 at 09:32 AM ET

Kanye doesn’t exactly have the best reputation amongst the population at large. Granted, he can be ever so slightly bombastic, just a touch egocentric, and happens to be the foremost proponent of tooting his own horn. However, after last night’s Footwear News Achievement Awards sponsored by Zappos Couture, it seems like a little self-congratulations might be in order for Dr. West (and you better believe he’s not about to pass up this opportunity to pat himself on the back).

Tim Gunn Slams the Kardashian Family for Their 'Distasteful' Style, Calls Kanye West's Fashion Line 'Dumb'

Nov/06/2015 at 01:19 PM ET

Just when you thought Kanye West and the Kardashian Krew officially “made it” in the high-fashion world (his Yeezy Season 1 collection sold-out, he’s being honored the Shoe of the Year award and the Kardashian-Jenners have befriended every couture designer in the industry), one fashion insider still isn’t buying the (insanely expensive) pieces they’re selling. In a new interview for the Huffington Post, Project Runway‘s Tim Gunn called the family, “vulgar” and “distasteful” — and that’s just the beginning of how he feels.

Kanye West's Yeezy Season 1 Line Sold Out, Despite Fans' Complaints

Oct/29/2015 at 09:37 PM ET

Although many fans are complaining about the high prices of Kanye West‘s Yeezy Season 1, the rapper’s debut clothing line sold out much of its stock almost instantly — and then ended up on eBay.

The line, which was on display at this year’s New York Fashion Week, features baggy sweatshirts, sweats, and distinctly tattered and oversized tops, along with jackets and signature boots.

Many of West’s fans took to Twitter to voice their discontent at the prices, yet the Yeezy Season collection — available at limited retailers like Barneys, SSENSE, and Mr. Porter — has almost completely sold out.

Prices range from $340 for a “thermal knit shirt” to $3,510 for a “faux-fur-trimmed oversized parka,” with tags in between covering the cost of backpacks, sweats and sweaters.

West, 38, has not responded to any of the backlash or apparent success from his near sold-out debut. However, he has been open in the past about wanting his clothes to be accessible to everyone.

“I don’t want them to be limited actually,” he said during an interview with Power 105 FM’s The Breakfast Club. “That’s something that the company did. I really want as many people to get them as possible. I didn’t want the price to be $350. I don’t want to play this sneaker culture game and all this so they be reselling them for high prices and stuff. I just want people to have what I make.”
