During the Billboard Music Awards, he wore Gucci for the red carpet. This time he was seen in a midnight blue track and red piping work. His white shoes also had a red stripe and accessorized his amazing look with a huge ring. The rest of the band also wore Gucci, making them all match.
Tae’s Most Expensive Gucci Outfits, Accessories, And Other Items
Tae wears Gucci so religiously that his fans feel that the brand should endorse him as soon as possible. During BTS in the Soop, many fans were shocked to see Tae waking up in a Gucci shirt. This is rare for common people to witness, but since Tae is a millionaire, he does not shy away from spending his money on luxurious items.
Below are some of the most expensive items that Tae has ever sported.
Tae loves Gucci so much that he proved he could be extra by rocking a Gucci snake print phone case during a V LIVE. The phone case is estimated to cost about Rs 25,228.
V also has another piece from the snake series. His print leather duffel bag is a beautiful piece estimated to cost around Rs 1.7 lakh.
Tae rocked brogue shoes in the “Love Yourself” Answer era. The rustic Gucci brogue shoes cost Rs 96,000 to 1 lakh.
If you did not know, Gucci also sells watches. It’s not surprising to see V in a Le Marchã Des Merveilles watch that retails at nearly Rs 1 lakh.
A Dynamite Suit
During the shooting of the explosive hit Dynamite by BTS, Tae wore an emerald green wool mohair formal suit that retails at (Rs 1.03 lakh). He paired the suit with a striped washed-silk tie that cost Rs 16.3k. The stripe cotton shirt he wore retails at around Rs 43k. The entire outfit he wore for the music video cost nearly Rs 2.4 lakh.
A Sleeveless Vest
During the BTS’ comeback Map of the Soul: Persona photoshoot V sported a green and white Houndstooth tweed vest by Gucci. The expensive vest costs $4200.
At MAMA, V was seen adorning a velvet jacket by Gucci while performing. The jacket had embroidery and looked beautiful. This jacket costs about Rs 4,30,360.
At the AMA performance, V was spotted wearing Gucci’s popular black corduroy jacket. The jacket was decorated with detailed button embroidery costing around $7580.
Tae once wore a gorgeous diamond floral chocker when performing. The chocker by Gucci costs nearly $30,000. On a standard store, a chocker goes for less than $50. Therefore, wearing such expensive accessories from the brand proves his love for it.
Due to his love for Gucci, Tae has always worn their pieces, including clothes and accessories. Most of these items are expensive as they are from a luxurious brand. Moreover, since Tae represents the brand so well, Gucci should already consider making him its brand ambassador as his fans already wonder why Gucci isn’t already making that move.
It’s rumored that BTS does not take individual sponsorships or fashion sponsorships unless in a few instances. They also tend to do sponsorships for affordable companies. Therefore, this may be why V is not a Gucci model already.
Gucci may not have invited Tae to be their ambassador because he already wears their outfit, and they may only make you an ambassador if they want you to wear their stuff.
