Kanye West dropped the first piece from his new clothing line released in partnership with Gap — a blue collared puffer jacket.

The Yeezy Gap Round Jacket, made of recycled nylon, sells for $200.  It marks the first collaborative item of Kanye’s 10-year partnership with the famous mall brand.

The jacket reportedly sold out Tuesday morning, but a Yeezy Gap representative tells People that, despite long wait times or “Sold Out” messages on the site, the jacket is still available for pre-order.

West confirmed his partnership with Gap on Twitter last summer, sharing an image of the Gap logo modified with the letters “YZY,” along with the caption, “YEEZY AND GAP FORM PARTNERSHIP #WESTDAYEVER.”

West, who worked in a Gap store as a teen growing up in Chicago, had declared in a 2015 interview with The Cut that he would “like to be the Steve Jobs of the Gap.”

The Yeezy Gap line is set to include a range of pieces for men, women and children.
