YEEZY Season 3 is officially here and the extensive collection offers up rugged military boots, plenty of shearling, and comfortable sweats made for lounging. We already reported the full price list, which puts it in the same price range as contemporary luxury labels like Robert Geller, John Elliott, and Stampd - or about 25-30% higher than brands like Supreme.
With so much to choose from, we narrowed down the selection to 10 pieces that stand apart from the pack. Because even though the prices aren't as high as YEEZY Season 1, you're still going to want to invest your money in things that will get a pretty good amount of wear, instead of just languish in your closet.
This is probably a good time to let readers not in the EU in on a little secret—if you buy stuff from stores based in Europe, you'll usually get a tax discount, which is built into the price at most European stores. So when you check out, it might end up being a little less than you initially anticipated.
But with no further ado, here are our 10 favorite men's pieces from YEEZY Season 3.
Shearling Flight Coat in God Sun, $1,500
Modeled by Ian Connor during the YEEZY Season 3 presentation, this bright yellow shearling was the standout piece in a tonal look. If the muted neon shade has you on the fence, there's also an all-black version. Yes, it's definitely a pricey purchase, but it's probably going to be in the same price range as Supreme's upcoming neon green shearling bomber made in collaboration with Schott.
Military Boot in Rock, $650
Designed by Kanye West footwear protege Salehe Bembury, these chunky-soled military boots are based on surplus jungle boots, but are elevated with suede hits that contrast the ballistic nylon upper. Available in a variety of tonal colorways like black and burnt orange, the tan pair channels classic winter boots with a surplus-inspired touch.
Crewneck Sweatshirt in Fluoro Red, $275
The YEEZY collection offers a bunch of oversized sweatshirts and hoodies, but Season 3 in particular embraces a more colorful palette than the dark military tones we're used to seeing. This washed red sweatshirt complements the otherwise understated bottoms in the collection, and even adds a nice contrast if you wear them with the orange-striped YEEZY Boost 350 V2s.
Workwear Pant in Forest, $350
This season's bottoms are particularly formidable, like these cargo pants that are cut slim and given an elastic waistband for comfort. Reinforced panels at the shins add to the utilitarian appeal, and the washed olive shade means you can wear them with pretty much anything.
Printed Anorak, $725
It wouldn't be a military-inspired collection without some camo, and this anorak melds a hooded-lined coaches jacket silhouette with surplus-inspired details like velcro straps at the sleeves and throat, as well as curved flap pockets. Sort of a combination of an oversized hoodie with the ideal military jacket, the open bottom and relaxed fit gives you plenty of options for layering underneath.
Heavy Knit Tee, $195
Colder weather calls for tees made of thicker, more substantial materials. This knit tee is still made from 100% cotton, but it's been beefed up to feel more military-issue than super soft. The dropped shoulders and oversized fit mean you can layer it over slimmer-fitting knitwear or thermals, while the versatile distressed camo pattern toes the line between vintage style and grunge.
Thermal Long Sleeve in Camo, $275
This thermal eschews the military references to channel some woodsman vibes. Not that you'll be hunting for food in it (or playing paintball, if that's your thing), but it makes a good layer for colder weather while looking cool on its own when it isn't totally freezing outside. Plus the brown tree motif means it's the ideal top to rock with the Chocolate YEEZY Boost 750s.
Velcro Cargo Pant in Black, $325
At first glance, these trousers may not look like your typical pair of cargo pants, but then you realize the extra storage is cleverly hidden in the front panels above the knee. Behind them are two adjustable velcro straps that give them a '90s Helmut Lang vibe, which makes sense given the designer is one of Kanye West's biggest influences. And you can never have enough black pants in your wardrobe anyway.
Oversized Cotton T-Shirt in Limelight, $195
Another one of the non-military themes visited by YEEZY Season 3 is the world of hardwearing construction gear. This safety green tee channels the same kind of day-glo tees worn by construction crews the world over, minus the staff graphics and labor union imagery. But the bright hue can the right amount of contrast to the collection's dark outerwear and trousers.
Shell Jogging Bottoms in True Onyx, $295
Trackpants are trending, but what makes this pair special is a contrast Tyvek panel on the front. Made of recycled paper, the technical fabric gives these trackies a tactile edge, while also channeling the construction themes touched on by certain pieces in the collection.
