(Radio.com) The Weeknd recently modeled a few pieces of Kanye West's YEEZY Adidas collaboration for a GQ photo shoot and according to the "Can't Feel My Face" singer, the army surplus-inspired gear felt like it was designed for someone like him.

"I really felt like he targeted someone like me," The Weeknd told the mens fashion magazine. "The camo, the army look, the black boots, the nonchalant kind of vagrant look. I relate to it. It relates to my story. Kanye is such a great friend of mine as well, when he asked me I couldn't say no. It was the least I could do."

If The Weeknd's modeling does inspire some to go searching for the YEEZY line, bare in mind that Kanye's slightly understated street clothes may not be for every wallet. As an example, the vest shown above is carries a $1,170 price tag and the sweater underneath will set you back a cool $1,560.

Although some retailers have been given order forms, it's not yet known when YEEZY's merch will actually hit shelves. Read more here.
