Is wearing Air Jordans with leather pants the new statement in hip-hop fashion? It’s true that only a select number of people could actually pull that off, and Theophilus London, recognized for his unique and eccentric taste in threads, is certainly one of those dudes who can wear Jays with cow-skin trousers and still maintain a look of sanity. Theophilus was spotted at a special benefit event at The Museum Of Modern Art, where he posed for the cameras in front of a wall of red roses (taking the red carpet theme to a flora-based motif) while wearing the Air Jordan XI Space Jam. More shots of Theophilus and his Space Jams are below so take a look and let us know what you think!
First off leather pants! almost as bad as Ed Hardy Ts and anything Affliction. Unless your in Judas Priest leather pants are dead and gone. A normal man should not look to this as what they should wear. This is purely style which makes him iconic thats what is unique about him. The cowboy hat wayy not so much. As with matching the shoes to the pants I have to give it to him. Space Jam 11s should be the part of the wardrobe that stands out not those obnoxious leather pants. Dark jeans and the rest of that outfit would make that pop perfecty. I know this guy wears some hideous stuff but you can still be original by dressing some what normal do not look to him for advice. More Wale would be the best to notice.
OMG! JUS STOP WIT THE TIGHT AS LEATHER PANTS OR THE BLAZER WIT THE SNEAKERS THATS JUS RETARTED PERIOD! IT DOESNT MATTER IF GOD WORE IT
outfit is fresh 2 deaf u can maybe get in a club with this out and your J's yeeeeeees! the new grown man club attire!
His style is pretty corny. But hey, I guess it takes all kinds to make the world go round. In all fairness, at least this outfit is relatively cleaner than what he usually wears. And that's saying a lot. It's just the spandex looking leather pants that makes me cringe.
"Dont Be Afraid" is a sick song by this dude. Pants are still wack thou. London wore Nike Mags & SpaceJam's, let's see what else..
MAn take them off you whack mofo, I remember Js used to be a rarity man...you used to feel good when you had em and dont get me wrong i am going to keep grabbin my favorite pairs but you honestly think this whack mofo had a passion for Js before he came up HELL NO and when I mean passion doesnt even matter if you dont have the money to grab them its your desire and your passion for the shoe. Please stop showing this bullshit sneakernews, as a matter of fact I dont even know who this dude is...all you can say I live under a rock but maybe you should stop looking at mediatakeout, TMZ and all that other shit and concentrate on your OWN life...
Plus he will only get in a club looking like this because of his name and his $ you try getting into some clubs I tell you about looking like this and good luck
jordans were a rarity because they were expensive, and now that anyone can get them don't get mad at people who have them, and these are probably the most recent release which you probably have, is that still passion? how would you know if he has a passion or not if you don't even know him? don't get mad at people who buy jordans and wear them in their own style, you can't romanticize new jordans anymore, face the facts
I agree I don't know who this guy is the only way I know him is from sneakernews.com, nicekicks.com (same stuff), and complex.com. Who is this guy? If he is a singer he should change his appearence or stage name because hes not on my Sirius radio or on Hot 97, funk flex wouldnt play him. Also on the Jordan talk I love it wear I live because people think I'm crazy going out of my way to get a pair of sneakers but the ladies love it when I got fresh stuff on. Call it a hole in the wall but I like the attention haha. Next pair I'm getting is those Cements give me 2 pairs thanks. Lebron 9 all about THE U colorway, then those last shots, then those CONCORD aka my wedding shoes aka I'm going to have a better honeymoon. 2 pairs of each.
You just spoke the GODDAMN TRUTH for everybody that was old enough to remember when the actual OG Js dropped in the late 80s ealry 90s. NO ONE over 27 would disagree with ya comment homie. Major thumbs up.
Back when J's used to be release on friday but they stop that cause we were skipping school to get them,lol
Yes those are my pants. I never washed them leather pants and they always smelled like balls. He can keep 'em
