A$AP Rocky

YDBR came across a few trendy fellas including A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, John Legend & Nick Young wearing a $2,190 Saint Laurent Leather-Trimmed Wool-Blend Varsity Jacket. A$AP Rocky sported this jacket in his “Fashion Killa” visual while Pusha T rocked it in his “King Push” video. Singer John Legend was photo’d in this jacket when he was arriving to BBC Radio Two Studio in London. He paired his jacket with a white tee-shirt, black jeans and Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers. Last week, I posted NBA player Nick Young of the Los Angeles Lakers wearing this jacket layered over a white tee-shirt with distressed jeans and a flannel shirt tied around his waist. Nick’s outfit was completed with Giuseppe Zanotti Python Sneakers.

This Saint Laurent black & white varsity jacket has been crafted in a monochrome palette, with a wool-blend body and white leather trims. You can purchase it at Mr Porter.

For your chance to enter to win, click  here: 

http://tinyurl.com/MISTER-PETENYC

Watch the trailer here below:

Synopsis: During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s (Brooks) hard-living mother (Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete (Dizon) alone to forage for food while dodging Child Protective Services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. Faced with more than any child can be expected to bear, the resourceful Mister nevertheless feels he is an unstoppable force against seemingly unmovable obstacles. But what really keeps the pair in the survival game is much more Mister’s vulnerability than his larger-than-life attitude.

THE INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER & PETE is a beautifully observed and tremendously moving film about salvation through friendship and the way transformation sometimes can happen just by holding on long enough. Director George Tillman, Jr. draws indelible performances from a fantastic cast, which includes Jordin Sparks, Golden Globe® and Primetime Emmy® Award winner Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Anthony Mackie, and Golden Globe® and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson (Supporting Actress, Dreamgirls, 2006), all led by Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon in stunning breakout performances as Mister and Pete. The film also features new music by Alicia Keys. Codeblack Films and Lionsgate present an iDeal Partners / State Street production in association with Floren Shieh Productions / Archer Gray Productions / Cherry Sky Films / AKW Productions.
