We're already head-over-heels for Theophilus London's one-of-a-kind style, but then we peeped his recent interview with StyleLikeU, and now we're straight-up obsessed. The Brooklyn-based rapper dishes on everything from his Anna Wintour mockery tee ("I'm sure she'll think it's funny") to his uh-mazing purple dip-dyed shirt, and even admits he doesn't have a stylist! We were flabbergasted and thought we should share all the other amazing style facts we learned about Theophilus from his interview. Check it out below!

1.) Kanye West digs Theophilus' threads: "Even Kanye West e-mailed me saying he loves my style, and I inspire his style."

2.) At one point in his life, he would've chosen Jordans over any sum of money: "These are some Jordan 3s. These shoes are just like, if you put them on, you're just a rock star. [...] I could take a million dollars or I could take a pair of Jordans, and as a kid, I'd take a pair of Jordans."

3.) He personalizes all of his jackets with patches: "In Paris I would visit this huge market where they would sell everything—all this old womens jewelry. They have all these buttons and patches and [...] royal emblems of national armies, so I picked up a lot of these and put them on almost every different coat that I have to personalize it."

4.) He really likes kilts: "[Givenchy] is doing kilts for men, so I went everywhere in New York to find that, and I found this Rick Owens one, which is so dope because it's attached to the pants."

5.) His style icon is a 72-year-old man: "This guy Leon Ware, he wrote Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" record—he's one of the sexiest men alive. He's such a cool, old, black jazzy dude—one of my fashion icons. So I replicated the "Timez Are Weird These Days" cover from his original artwork—him standing in a suit with his hat on in the same pose."
