As he plans his fashion show at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West should bear in mind that you need more than a flashy show to sell clothes.

While the front row for his fall/winter 2015 Adidas Originals collection last February included Jay-Z, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Kim and North West and P Diddy – not to mention sis-in-law Kylie Jenner on the runway – a [email protected] spy rifling through the dregs of the Barneys sale noted a preponderance of deeply discounted pieces from the collection.

Indeed, of the 34 items on the high-end department store’s website, 30 of them are on sale – including the “Destroyed Sweater,” originally $ 2,600 and now a snip at $ 1819. More good news for Kanye fans of all sizes – the wool pullover advertised as “destroyed with rips and holes” is still available in all sizes from XXS to XL.

Shortly after the show, the rapper told In Style that he has a “Robin Hood approach” to making clothes. “If someone was to say, ‘Hey, do you want to go to a high-end house now?’ I’d absolutely say no. Because I’m only concerned with making beautiful products available to as many people as possible,” he told the site. “The least I could do is spend my time trying to give other people a piece of the so-called good life. Everyone should have the good life.”

It was reported this week that West will hold his next show at Madison Square Garden on February 11.
