It’s been a busy seven days for the culture. Not only were we (effectively) given confirmation that Shia LaBeouf is indeed the living source of contemporary menswear, but new developments suggest that YEEZY season has approached. At least if you live in Wyoming.
Elsewhere, Drake and Travis Scott donned their headsets and broke the internet with an epic live gaming session on Twitch, while Ludacris put the “n” in “nominative determinism” with an SXSW rider request which included an iPhone 6 charger. (Yes. An iPhone 6 charger. In 2018.)
On the fashion front, Nike dropped some fresh corduroy AM97 joints (don’t call them a Sean Wotherspoon consolation prize) and the patron saint of ugly sneakers, Raf Simons, showcased his latest “what are thooooose!” creations at Calvin Klein. We dig them, though.
As always, our ever-comical readership was on hand to greet the news with some white-hot takes. Peep some choice highlights below.
Please keep in mind these comments are meant to be taken as jokes and are only highlighted for the comedic effect they offer.
