I love Kanye's suit here.

Can anyone tell me in detail about the suit? (The material, the style, how much it would cost if custom made, etc.)

looks like black and white glen plaid with a thick white check over it. since it's kanye, i'd say it's bespoke.

The length of the jacket looks Thom Browne-ish. The pants, not so much.

The jacket, like it was stated above, is shorter than normal. The pants seem cut in a way not unlike jeans..although it helps he's wearing sneakers to achieve that look.

The fabric and style doesn't seem unique or rare in any sense. As to how much it would cost would purely depend on who is making the suit.

It seems like a nice suit, but I think what makes it stand out is the use of stark white through the shoes and shirt (and background), and the red broken heart thing (i'm not sure what it is)

that being said...he basically steals a lot of his style on this album from T-pain and little wayne in my opinion; then again what do I know, as I'm more of a jazz/flamenco/metal kind of guy.

The ticket pocket and lapel say don't.

5. Kanye West does his own thing. What I love the most about his style is that he wears every designer in the world, but you don’t see the designer—you just see him. I just see a whiney bitch (also applies to Jet and Ghulkhan) who is trying too hard.

Might be from his own line, Pastelle

I find the placement of the 2nd button an amusing subtle detail because obviously the jacket is shorter but the button placement looks like it belongs on a normal length jacket. I wonder if this was intentional or not.

I noticed that too, thought it was kinda cool. I'd say intentional, I don't see any big designer unintentionally doing anything to a suit Kanye will wear, too high profile to not go over every detail.

Cool suit overall, i'd sport it.

he sometimes whines but most of the time he's telling the truth (even while whining).
