With drawn-out lines for West's shirts at all his tour stops, it's no wonder what a fortune the musician is making off merchandise.

Prices at Kanye West's 'The Life of Pablo' Pop-Up Shop in New York City were as follows:
Hoodies, $95
Shirts, $45
Hats, $40
Beanies, $35


Buyers may be shocked to compare these retail prices to West's very low production costs.

West's shirts and hoodies have his lyrics in gothic lettering printed on Gildan shirts.

You may recognize Gildan being use at your local screen printing shop. That's because Gildan shirts can cost as low as $1.50 if bought at wholesale.
