Even as he introduced his flashy line at the October 2011 fashion shows, Kanye kept his own look basic, wearing a white T-shirt and black jeans with a pair of simple black Nike Air Yeezy shoes. (Yeezy is Kanye's nickname; the sneaker line is a collaboration between West and Nike.)

Kanye is famous for pairing T-shirts with everything from suits to skinny jeans, and it's a look that he always manages to own. What's his secret? For one thing, his T-shirts always look brand new and wrinkle-free, even when he's performing on stage or photographed in action, such as during a pickup game of basketball. Whether he chooses a plain T-shirt or a bold graphic design, the whites are bright white, and any colors are crisp or intentionally faded. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Kanye also has the physique to pull it off, since even the perfect T can easily go from stylish to sloppy without the right torso to fill it out.
