Yeezy Fans Outraged by Life of Pablo Merch Quality [High Snobiety]
In three short days, Kanye West reportedly raked in more than $1 million from his Life of Pablo merch pop-up shops. However, a little digging revealed that insane mark-ups might be responsible for his quick fortune. Labels show that the $55 tees are Gildan tees, which sell at wholesale for between $1.50 and $4 per shirt. Even with the added costs of shipping, printing, taxes and staff, West made almost a $43 profit per tee. Understandably, some fans were upset by the low-quality merch, expressing their anger on social media.
