Plain, White T-Shirts More Expensive Than Kanye's $120 A.P.C. Collab

If there's anything Kanye does exceptionally well, it's bringing niche obsessions to the masses. Whether it's Death Grips-style industrial rap or Le Corbusier lamps, Kanye has a keen eye for introducing the world to fringe pursuits. His latest contribution is one that the fashion set might recognize — the designer T-shirt.
Priced at $120, his A.P.C. collaboration "Hip-Hop" T-shirt is probably $115 more expensive than the average white-T-shirt wearer pays for his top, and is — to the shock of the public — all sold out. But, thanks to Alexander Wang, Rick Owens, The Row, and other boundary-pushing designers, a $100+ T-shirt is — though obscene — not too hard to come by. We spent a sec checking a few online shops and came up with six other plain, white tees that make Kanye's look nearly affordable.
