While the likes of Billy Porter and Jared Leto brought their most extravagant ensembles to this year’s Met Gala. Everyone’s favourite crazy and eccentric creator/rapper Kanye West was Ballin’ On A Budget, rocking up in a casual black Dickies staple zip-up known as the Eisenhower Jacket.
Given the almost obligatory extravagance of the event, such low-key outerwear was a subversive move. The Insulated Eisenhower Jacket, inspired by General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s favorite WW2 jacket, is all about utility, durability, and comfort. The jacket also packs a number of exterior and interior pockets, giving the wearer plenty of space to store their Met Gala ephemera. Next to Kim Kardashian’s bronze-gold custom Thierry Mugler dress, West’s low-key look certainly made a statement.
And best of all, the jacket costs just $43. You can buy it from Dickies via the link below.
