Complex Kits: Documenting the style of the stars and personalitites who come through our office.

Rich Homie Quan is one of the rappers keeping Atlanta relevant. With a penchant for party flows and more serious songs, he stands out on tracks like "Differences" and faces comparisons to contemporaries like Future and Trinidad James. He blew up once "Type of Way" debuted, not only garnering him more fans, but co-signs from names like Lil Wayne and ATL legends like Ludacris.
No stranger to streetwear, Quan's been spotted in "Cassius Clay" gear from No Mas and rolled through the office for a recent visit wearing a literally fresh Armani outfit—he bought the head-to-toe look right before he arrived. We asked him about his favorite shops, personal style, and mean jewelry game.
What are you wearing today?
Right now I have on an Armani shirt, Armani pants, Armani belt, Rolex necklace, Rolex watch, and mid-top Air Force 1s.
Hold on, lemme tell you the story behind it. Yesterday when I first got down here, I only brought one outfit. The ride was supposed to be outside at 10 a.m. I woke up at 9—keep in mind that stores don't open til 10 o'clock—so I went to the store, bought an outfit, got dressed there, and got here. Does it look all right?
It looks dope.
What are some of your favorite stores?
My favorite stores are G-Star, they have a store in Atlanta. I love G-Star, and my stytlist, she gets a lot of stuff I've never heard of. I like Giuseppe shoes. You gotta keep in mind though I won "Best Dressed" in high school, so I really like to style myself.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is different, you know what I'm saying? I would say it's original. Some days you might see me with small pants, 'cause I'm tall. People be like "damn he tall but like to wear skinnies?" It's me. I don't care what nobody thinks. I wear shirts that fit me, it's my style.
Your accessory game is on point. Do you have any style rules about jewelry?
I got my ears pierced when I was little. I try to keep it simple though. I don't want a big old flashy watch. I try to keep it nice, neat, and clean, man. One chain—you might see me with two—but I'm never too flashy, I've never been like that.
