This Vintage T-Shirt Dealer Sells to Kanye, Jerry Lorenzo and Migos

35037 ratings | 1804682 views
Back in August of 2017, Patrick Matamoros sat down with HYPEBEAST Radio to talk about how he met Kanye West and the resurgence of old band merch. He also described what it was like collaborating with Jerry Lorenzo and Fear of God on a collection. Now, for our docu-series, the vintage T-shirt dealer takes us through one of his typical days. When Matamoros first moved to New York City, he set up on the corner of Prince and Mercer streets, in the epicenter of Manhattan's SoHo district. He recalls nearly giving up after spending a whole day there not selling a single tee until a man purchased multiple pieces right as he began packing up. Fast forward and he's meeting with Chris Gibbs of Union and taking us on a house call with music producer Benny Blanco in Los Angeles. Take a look above at what it's like to be a full-time vintage tee dealer for the stars where "finding a shirt is like Fight Club" and stay tuned for our next installment soon. In case you missed it, our last video had Blondey McCoy talking about the pressures of being a pro skater, fashion icon and balancing his love for art and music.

The whole world Is a hustle, as long as it looks nice and seems real, then you got the simple minded who will buy it up for thousands. Everyone getting finessed out there money

this business is complete bullshit. These vintage rock t-shirts are found in local thrift stores literally everywhere. You can literally get a new shirt, wear it for 4 years and it will look the same after washing. Now these clowns want to source all of the T-shirts to hold a monopoly against people so they buy a $5 vintage t-shirt for $400 or more is beyond me.

Does nobody in the comment section understand what Deadstock, vintage, or value behind the artist name is? Quality over Quantity, Value over price.

I’m sick of this “style”. In it for the money? Dude you live in a nice apartment and drive an Audi. S a D. They aren’t even your designs.

This dude totally seems like that pretentious dude you let stay with you for the weekend then ends up staying for a month. The kind of guy who doesn’t catch the drift and will over stay his welcome ‘till you literally have to ask him to leave. Then he says it’s not about the money after fucking some poor bastard for $17,000 for a raggedy old sweat shirt. Get fucked you dichhead!!
Citizenshane81 (12 days ago)
Those are some dope shirts
SteveN M. Geeez (13 days ago)
You contradicted yourself at the end " it's important that the person really loves the band on the shirt there wearing or if they don't know the band but like the way it looks on them" meaning u don't give a fuck just pay me 17,000 for a t shirt. Be real!

This is the culmination of our generation's susceptibility to nostalgia. Doesn't get more retarded than this.

"I dont do it for the money, I do it because its my passion" *sells first clothing ever at $200-$300 and sweatshirt for 17k*. Hes trying to stand out so much by doing what regular genuine people do to help pay their bills, go to a thrift store, pay $1 or $2 on a shirt and resell it at most $20. I would never buy from this man.

I've sold vintage band t's to this guy at the Rose Bowl, as well as referred other dealers to him. He's a pretty nice guy.

Dude you’re not an artist or a designer. All you do is get paid to thrift shop and rehab/distress old t shirts. Nothing special anyone with a sewing kit can do what you do
J C (20 days ago)
Wtf 17k for a vintage sweatshirt? Grail pieces from early 2000’s raf simons collections don’t even go for that much.
Omg! All I care about is the Frenchie’s underbite

Totally fake, he does not have a car, he takes uber, he does not have a luggage for the t shirts he arrives with a trash bag, and he sell at 17000 this rubbish t shirts? Cmon man =D

Don't waste your time caring if other people care, sell to whomever buys it, because more than likely they share the same opinion as you.

This guy is making money off of idiots. To be perfectly honest his clients consist of very wealthy people who would pay stupid amounts for a regular t shirt. This is smart on his part but I cant respect a guy who is gonna charge absurd amounts of money for just t shirts.
