Kanye West’s ‘Church Clothes’ Sold at Coachella Blasted by Fans for Being Too Expensive

Kanye West brought his Sunday Service event to Coachella this year for an Easter Sunday performance where he introduced a limited edition clothing line he created called Church Clothes.

West was joined at Coachella by his friends Chance The Rapper, DMX, Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor, and Ty Dolla $ign for an Easter worship service held at the music festival. Off to the side of the event, the hip-hop trailblazer featured his limited edition Church Clothes in tents for attendees to pre-order.

The collection also appeared on West’s official online shop but is no longer available on his site. Reports claim that Church Clothes are under West’s YEEZY name brand templates and items won’t be shipped for an estimated four to five weeks.

The merchandise, all sporting simple designs, are mostly off-white or maroon-dyed. The fashion designer’s line features T-shirts, crewnecks, long sleeves, sweatpants, socks, and ponchos with Christian phrases.

A pair of cotton sweatpants with the print “Sunday Service” cost $195. Matching crewnecks and hoodies with “Holy Spirit” are $225 each. A T-shirt with “Trust God” on the front cost $70. The poncho was being sold for $75, and a two-pack pair of “Jesus Walks” socks for $50.

After the concert, several people took to social media and slammed West for selling overpriced merchandise at a worship service. However, Adam Tschorn of the Los Angeles Times disagreed with critics.

“If a $50 two-pack of rib-knit ‘Jesus Walks’ and ‘church clothes’ socks serves as an ‘I was there’ souvenir to that kind of had-to-be-there moment, it feels like an outright bargain,” he wrote.
