Welp, looks like Justin Bieber is starting off his last teenage year, streamlining his wardrobe a little bit as he heads into his twenties. Perhaps we’re speaking too soon and The Biebs will prove us horribly, horribly wrong with some wretched Pepto Bismol pink gas mask he’s been saving up for when we least expect it, but for now, we’re going to dole out some praise of Justin’s latest casual London look. After having reportedly left his O2 audience waiting for upwards of two hours the night before, Bieber greeted fans from the balcony of his London hotel yesterday in a simple yet striking grayscale graphic tee and a black backwards snapback. We’re not saying the “swaggy” ensemble and extra facetime made up for the major tardiness, but we just had to track down this tee nonetheless.
A quick zoom on the shirt reveals that the front graphic features four individuals, pictured in quadrants, contorting their hands into fake glasses. Luckily, it also reveals the brand: Hype Means Nothing. The French label screenprints predominantly black-and-white photos of iconic celebrities (and some cartoons) making “hand glasses” onto tees, crewnecks, and even select accessories. It’s been catching love from celebrities like Cassie who wore the Biggie tee last December and Rihanna who repped the heather gray Obama shirt this January. Bieber one-ups them both at once, wearing The Notorious B.I.G. and President Barack Obama, PLUS Jay-Z and Michael Jordan. Also, this particular version isn’t even available on the official Hype Means Nothing online store.
We tracked Bieber’s specific shirt all the way to popular UK department store Selfridges where the Total Four T-shirt is retailing for £65.00. Unfortunately, Selfridges doesn’t do online deliveries outside of the UK (yet?), but if you really want to go the extra mile for this shirt, you can apparently place an order via telephone!
