Can We Still Be Fans?

This is just a tragic sight… that suit isn’t going to help anyone get to the moon. He needs to just throw his space-man suit in the garbage. It has to be what’s suffocating his brain from making good music anymore. Kid Cudi Merch Coachella Outfit
And don’t even get me started on this “men’s” crop-top he wore during his Coachella performance last weekend. He looks like he’s running late for jazzercise class.
I think it’s safe to say the only thing that hasn’t completely changed much is his “off-stage” fashion sense. Off-stage, he still keeps his style “simply complex” as I like to call it. His outfits may seem typical at times, but the exclusive and hard-to-find garments and accessory pairings are what make his outfits unique. Yeah that may be just a plain black t-shirt, but it’s probably a french or italian cotton-blend tee that could pay my rent for the next three months. And the Bape letterman jacket over top of it will definitely make you look more than twice. Kid Cudi Old photo of Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi trying on his new BAPE Shark Varsity Letterman

Can We Still Be Fans?
I have promised myself that I would wait until his next project released until I make my final decision, in hopes he will redeem not only himself but some of his day-one fans as well. I will continue to listen to all his classic material until then. For those of you that are Team Mescudi for life, be sure to fulfill all your Moon-Man Merchandise needs at Dress Code. Let us know what you guys thought of the new album and tell us what direction you think he’s going with his sound in the comments below.
He is Kid Cudi, this bespectacled, Cleveland-born alternative hip hop powerhouse, and he rules the airwaves and the streets. Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi (born January 30, 1984), is an American hip-hop recording artist and actor. A rapper, singer-songwriter, guitarist and record producer, Cudi is signed under his own record label, Wicked Awesome Records and Republic Records. He first gained major attention after the release of his first official full-length project, a mixtape titled A Kid Named Cudi (2008). This resulted in him signing with Kanye West’s record label GOOD Music, in late 2008. In 2009, his debut single “Day ‘n’ Nite”, reached the top five of the Billboard charts. “Day ‘n’ Nite” was included on the mixtape as well as his debut studio album Man on the Moon: The End of Day (2009), which was later certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2010, he released his second studio album, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, preceded by the release of two singles “Erase Me” and “Mr. Rager”, which were released to moderate success.

In 2009, Cudi, alongside record producers Plain Pat and Emile Haynie, launched record label Dream On in partnership with Universal Motown and Kanye West’s GOOD Music.
Kid Cudi has sold over 4.6 million digital singles and has worked with artists such as Kanye West, Jay-Z, Common, Mary J. Blige, David Guetta, Shakira, MGMT, Snoop Dogg and Michael Bolton. With his originality and creativity, as well as the emotion he conveys in his music, Cudi has amassed a large cult-like following among high school students, college students and stoners alike.

For me,The Kid is not only a rising music star, he’s also a recognised style icon. In his signature tortoise coloured retro-nerd glasses and geek chic polo shirt, he has obviously mastered the art of looking nerdy and being thee cooler for it. When I think of Style de Kid Cudi, certain expressions come to mind: uptown hipster, contemporary streets, quasi-gentleman, style je ne sais qui, urban-retro-nerd…I could go on. But indeed, summed up in one word, Style de Kid Cudi is ‘Effortless’. That look that says ‘I love to look good, but I don’t fuss’. Quite frankly, The Kid gets dressed the way most guys do: getting up and throwing whatever on. That’s just one of the benefits of having a well-edited wardrobe — looking good becomes easier if everything you own is dope.

Cudi said of his morning routine: “I don’t like waking up and having to take an hour to figure out what to wear, I hate that. My wardrobe makes it so I can look in the closet and take me all ten, fifteen minutes to figure out a fit and I go from there

Now,I’d like to give you a glimpse into The Kid’s closet. You gotten understand why it’s certified Dope!

  • New Era
    “I love New Era fitteds. I just love baseball caps. The New Era was the first baseball cap I ever owned and I’m just completely obsessed with the New Era fitted. It’s not really a full-on brand, but that’s something that I love. And that’s something people see me in all the time in a baseball cap.”
  • Vintage Rock T-Shirts
    “BAPE would be one of my faves, but I haven’t worn them in a long time. I’ve Lucky Me I See Ghosts Hoodie of grown out of BAPE. I’m more into vintage pieces, and I love my rock T-shirts. Aside from the graphics and stuff, they’re more comfortable for me.”
  • GANT Rugger
    “GANT is making some things that I’ve fallen for — straight-up fallen in love with the jackets and the button-ups. They’ve been making some cool stuff as of late that I’ve been stumbling upon.

If I’m messing with a brand, its usually I’m looking for like a jacket, or some jeans, like a vest or something like that. I’m not the type of guy who goes out and gets a full outfit from one brand. I like to mix and match and piece things together.”

  • A.P.C.
    “A.P.C. denim man, they just have the illest cut. They are the best cut, best fitting jeans I’ve ever had and it’s the type of jeans that gets better with time. I have had my A.P.C. jeans for years, and I still wear them consistently. Personally, I think they make the best jeans on the planet. If you’re looking for jeans that conform to your lifestyle over time, these are the jeans.”
  • Balmain
    “From Balmain, I don’t really go hard with getting every piece of clothing that they spit out. I like to keep it more on accessories — and then a vest or a jacket, or a hoodie, and their jeans. I’m really into the jeans, but whatever, you won’t catch me in a full Balmain outfit. I don’t play that stuff. I think people with style can interchange things and make it work.

That’s why it’s tough for me to pick labels because I’m not a label whore. Of course, there’s a couple brands I frequent where I know I can get signature pieces from. Like A.P.C., everybody gets jeans from there. Balmain, if I go there, I’m looking for a new type of blazer or I’m looking for another vest or something in that vein.”

  • Jordan Brand
    “I love Jordans of course. Nike is definitely one of my favorite brands overall. Classic and iconic, can’t go wrong. That’s pretty much it. I don’t get married to one brand. IIIs and IVs are probably my two favorite pairs. Any colorway, but I like to keep it simple. I don’t like to have any super, crazy colorways.

A couple of years ago, I would’ve told you something different but now I like to have stuff that’s a little bit more classic and simple. Yeah, I just think they perfect and they go really well with my A.P.C.s.”

  • Klein
    Calvin Klein and Dior Homme
    “I love Calvin Klein suits, I love Dior suits. I’m a skinny dude man — it’s hard to find the perfect suit. And I kind of got into Dior and I was like ‘Ok, this is my steez right here.’ Yeah, Dior suits are the shit and Calvin Klein as well, and Ralph Lauren has some really cool suits too.”
  • Surface to Air
    “If you noticed, I wore their jacket in the ‘Day N Nite’ video. It was actually the director who I was working with who showed me and took it right off his back. I was like, ‘Yo, man. That jacket is fresh. What is that?’

And he was like, ‘They’re my friends. They have this company and they designed this jacket. This is a jacket that they did with Justice.’ I as like, ‘I want to wear that stuff.’ That’s why in the video it was a little bit cut and fitted because it wasn’t my jacket.

But that’s when I fell in love with Surface to Air and their style of jackets. Classic stuff. I have never had a better leather jacket ever in my life. And I’m not just saying that because I did a collab with them. This is how I felt way before my collab, which is why I sought them out to do a collab with them because I just love the quality of the jackets and how they stand the test of time.

It’s tough to always find that perfect leather jacket, the perfect pair of jeans and stuff like that. But with Surface to Air I know that I’m happy to say that I found the company that creates the perfect leather jackets. With the different styles, and I’m slim guy so its good for me. The cuts are really nice. I mess with them overall.”

  • Converse
    “Converse is my stuff for sure, hell yeah. It’s a classic thing from a kid, I couldn’t really get Jordans all the time, shit, get some Converse.”

All in all, Kid Cudi definitely has the perfect mix of swagger, confidence, and style to pull off the urban-retro-nerd-hip hop artist look. Oh, did I forget to mention his nerd- style frames? Well, as to that, the Kid is rarely seen without all four of his eyes!

I’m a generous lady, so apart from clueing y’all in on Kids see ghosts Merch style, I’ll share his music with you as well. Bumper package, yes? I knew you’d agree!(Grin) Indicud is his third studio album released April 16 2013 under Wicked Awesome Records, GOOD Music, and Republic Records. The album includes features from Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, RZA, Too Short, Haim & Michael Bolton. The album cover art was designed by Kid Cudi himself!
