CelebrityFrank Ocean's "Endless" Video Features a Ton of Rare Clothing
Rare vintage for the reclusive songwriter.
Late last night, long-awaited new music from Frank Ocean became a reality. For the first time four years, Frank Ocean released an album—specifically, a visual album titled Endless that is currently streaming exclusively on Apple Music. The music on Endless is great (though we're hearing that the album we expected, Boys Don't Cry, will drop this weekend). Frankly—no pun intended—we don't know what the hell is going on with Frank Ocean's music releases right now. We do know that, according to Rachel Zebdi, the video's stylist, Frank is wearing four incredibly hard-to-find vintage pieces in his latest video. (And for those wondering, his sneakers are Spalwart and sweatpants are from Outdoor Voices.)
Vintage Playboy Sweater
This Fair Isle-ish Playboy sweater was sold as early as the 1960s, though it has since gone the way of nude magazines. They're hard to come by on eBay—especially in black—but they're not that expensive.
The Jesus and Mary Chain Tee
Jesus and the Mary Chain is a popular alternative rock band from Scotland known for distorted guitar sounds and batshit crazy live shows. In 2014, Undercover used the band's Psychocandy album art on tees, shirts, and coats. Of course, we know Frank has a thing for '80s alt bands as Boys Don't Cry is also the name of an album from 1980 by The Cure. If you want a tee like this for yourself they're near-impossible to find, especially ones that are legit vintage. (Tee from Patrick Matamoros Chapel NYC)
David Bowie T-shirt
This tee is from the late Bowie's 1990 Sound-Vision Tour. Ocean has never explicitly referenced Bowie in a song, though a few years ago he did post a picture of an envelope Bowie sent him to his Tumblr. A similar tee can be found eBay for $120. (Frank's Tee from Patrick Matamoros Chapel NYC)
Kappa Athletic Jersey
Kappa is making a comeback these days thanks to brands like Gosha Rubchinkskiy raiding the Italian label's archives and re-issuing the greatest hits. We thought for a second that Frank might have gotten his Gosha x Kappa shirt early (which is expected to hit stores early next year), but Zebdi says it's simply from their mainline of gear. The closest we could find is a navy blue version of Frank's T-shirt, which is on sale at asos for $25. Who ever said Frank Ocean isn't a man of the people?
