BTS V‘s fashion has come a long way since the group’s debut, and these photos will show you just how far he’s come.
When BTS was still a rookie group, V often bought affordable clothes and cut holes in them himself to make them look like designer brands. One time, he even asked his followers on Twitter for suggestions on where to cut the holes.
In 2015, Jungkook also mentioned V’s holes in his shirt, and revealed that he was the one who taught V how to cut them in the first place!
아 그러고보니 이 옷때문에 그러는데 여러분. 여러분들이 오해가 있는거같습니다만..
뷔형이 옷자르는거 그리고 그 옷마저도 다 제가 가르쳐준거에요. 원조는 바로 접니다 여러분?

“Oh and by the way, in regards to these clothes, I think there’s a misunderstanding… I taught V hyung how to cut his clothes and these too. I am the original everyone? Please keep that in mind nahahahahaahaahaaha #AAAblanktee”

Sometimes, the shirts he made would turn out quite grungy and extremely stylish, especially when the cuts were simple and clean.
With BTS’s international popularity growing at an incredible rate, however, V is now able to purchase all the designer brand clothes he wants. He has even earned the nickname “Human Gucci” after being spotted so often wearing the Italian brand’s outfits.
From cutting holes in his cheap shirts to a Gucci suit, V has come a long way.
