Graphic designer Freeky P is Vancouver's undisputed king of bootleg tees. His shirts have been spotted on everyone from Questlove to G-Eazy to Drake, and he's collaborated with Vashtie and LA R&B party 143 on merch designs. He's also executed a few successful collaborations with vintage seller Frankie Collective—including their infamous "Fyre Festival" tee—but their latest drop is undoubtedly one of their funniest.
Freeky and Frankie's latest design flips Kanye West's unmistakable (and extremely polarizing) "Wyoming" merch into a celebration of China's national treasure, the legendary basketball player Yao Ming. While Yao wasn't the first Chinese national to play in the NBA, he is certainly the most well-known, and has the accolades to prove it including eight All-Star appearances and and spot in the Hall of Fame.
The "Why Yao Ming" tee is available now on the Frankie Collective website for $45 CAD and in sizes ranging from S to 3XL.
