Short for A Bathing Ape, Bape is a Japanese-based clothing brand. The clothes are like hip hop clothes, but brightly colored and with interesting designs....sometimes.
Bapes stand out from your run of the mill gangsta clothes.

A Japanese clothing company that makes ugly clothes that look like pajamas. They are ridiculously priced, and bought by spoiled rich kids because terrible rap artists like Pharrell, Lil Wayne, and Young Jeezy wear them. If you wear this brand of clothing, you are nothing but a mainstream trend follower robot.
Loser: Hey look at my $5000 bape shirt!
Me: Shutup.
