Present-day Kanye West has an extremely different look than when he first appeared on the music scene. During the years of his first three albums, circa 2002 through 2005, ‘Ye was all about the polo shirt and popped-collar look.
As the sound and themes of his music began to change, so did his wardrobe, but let’s relive those vibrant years when he was all about polo.
Here’s a good first example: a bright tangerine polo, popped collar, tan jacket and chain.
Here he is in a very bold red.
And here he is in a teal thing.
Just popping collars left and right, right over this fur-lined aviator jacket.
Kanye also didn’t shy away from stripes.
See. More stripes.
Horizontal stripes of all sizes.
Plus vertical stripes to make a Burberry grid of stripes.
Oh, hello again, popped collar. We missed you.
When was the last time Kanye even looked at the color orange?
He’s got a polo in every single color.
Bask in all this purple.
Swim in all this salmon.
Sometimes he would wear all those colors at once.
Or just no colors at all.
