For some people, buying clothes isn't just a periodic activity, but a full-fledged lifestyle that requires trend surveillance, a keen knowledge of the resale market and deep pockets.

Collecting "hype" garments, particularly in streetwear, is something that has turned normal, everyday people from all over the globe into profitable merchants and even micro-celebrities with strong social media followings and sizable clout in the #industry.

Hailing all the way from Kuwait, KicksTQ is one of the most influential sneaker collectors in Western Asia. With an Instagram following that clocks in at just over 123K, Kicks keeps his scroll-happy fans satiated with a feed that flaunts his sartorial holy grail that gives even us a serious case of jawn-envy.

For our first installment of The Vault, KicksTQ invited us into his home to capture some of his most precious gear. Get an exclusive look inside his closet via the photos above.
