What’s that jacket, Margiela?
‘Ye, always ready to show off his knowledge of fashion, name drops Martin Margiela, a Belgian designer. A Margiela blazer like this will set you back about $1,850.
Margiela is referenced by Ye here (just as Jay has done before) to show off his avant-garde taste in style, in contrast with the last few lines where he exhibits his street knowledge via references to “killas” and “dealers”. Maison Martin Margiela clothes are extremely expensive, yes, but rather known better for being what even fashion insiders themselves consider to be very chic and cool (as opposed to the more cliche Gucci or Vuitton).
Could also be a play on words: what’s that jacket (Jack) Margiela (Jill)?
