Who likes expensive things? Drake does. Perhaps this is why he and the other members of October's Very Own have teamed up with Canada Goose on the fancy jacket above, which retails for $5,000. The reason for that hefty price tag, besides the fact that Drake is just mobbin' like that, is because it's made of buffalo hide, arctic fox fur, white duck down, and—wait for it—24k gold plated snaps and zippers.
The jacket became available right after the holidays (sales did not apply) at Nepenthes in New York, Osaka, and Tokyo, and at Nomad in Toronto. Here are some more photos of it, posted to October's Very Own blog, of someone throwing all caution to the wind and smoking something in it. Imagine the dry cleaning bill to get the smell out.
