Airbrush Shirts Are New? The Cut Needs To Cut It.
It’s not a secret that Black culture IS pop culture. Welcome Alexander Wang to the latest edition of mainstream stealing ideas from Black culture (find more evidence here and here). In true Christopher Columbus fashion, the style icon has just released an exclusive t-shirt design that’s well, not new.

What makes these shirts so “exclusive” to Alexander Wang? The famed designer gifted the models in his show with these custom shirts. But once NY Mag’s The Cut shared that these were shirts “you can’t buy anywhere,” Twitter went in.

The tweet was so absurd, that even a Cinnabon had to chime in.

Next time anyone needs a lesson on hiphop and graffiti culture, they should ask us. We can, at least, point you to an episode of The Get Down.
