Yes, we’re well-aware that this year’s SXSW Music Festival ended months ago. That it was months ago that Austin was infiltrated with taco-eating concert goers. And that it was months ago that A$AP Rocky’s set at the Vice Kills Texas party ended in an all-out BRAWL. There’s one aspect about all of this that we weren’t absolutely versed in until now: the pricey pantalones A$AP was sporting when this all went down.
In a recent interview with British GQ, the Harlem-based rapper talked about the headline-making crowd fight and its origins saying, “We got hit with beer cans eight times. Eight.” He goes on to say that despite his best efforts to calm the brawl down, the rowdy crowd continued to throw beer cans, but it’s his commentary and concern for his wardrobe at the time that has really caught our attention. A$AP revealed, “My pants were $1,000 and the crowd kept throwing stuff on them.” No mention was made of the specific brand he was working with that fateful night, but given the dude’s well-documented loves for both Rick Owens and Alexander Wang AND that hefty price tag, we can be sure the trousers were ultra-LUXE. And probably dry clean only. #sadface
