CelebrityOf Course Brooklyn Beckham Has the Jacket Normal Kids Had to Wait Hours to Get
The perks of being a Beckham.
Over the weekend, Kanye West tested the bounds of his influence when he opened 21 Pablo pop-up stores across the globe. Now, for West's devout fans everywhere, that mostly meant hours upon hours of waiting in line in the hopes of acquiring some screenprinted tees, hoodies, or jackets. In cities across the world, the big hit was a $325 vintage army jacket, that, unsurprisingly, was printed with the word "Pablo" across the back. But when you're the royal son of David Beckham, lines at the pop-up shops are not a thing. After being escorted inside, Brooklyn acquired an army green Pablo jacket. But despite the relative ease of copping, like most kids after a big purchase, he couldn't wait to wear it. (In fact, his love of Pablo merch has gotten him into hot water with his girlfriend's fans recently.) He was last night spotted in L.A. sporting his new uber-hyped vintage piece.
Brooklyn wore his the way Yeezus intended it: In an oversized fit, with a vintage tee, ripped jeans, and some Adidas gear. Though we've never seen Ye rock a pair of Chucks, Brooklyn's style is one that 17-year-olds everywhere can learn from. Even if your dad isn't a soccer legend or didn't once get paid $6.5 million a year to basically be the most expensive MLS mascot of all-time, nothing about Brooklyn's style can't be replicated on the cheap for the back-to-school season. A non-Pablo vintage M-65 costs about $30, vintage tees are a dime a dozen, Levi's makes slim washed out jeans for all (you can cut the knees yourself), and Chuck Taylors are still, in an age when $200 sneakers seem normal, just $55 dollars. Brooklyn Beckham may be a model/photographer with a major fashion campaign under his belt, but maybe he is a regular thrifty teen after all.
