Short for Bathing Apes - clothes that are only worn by rappers and people who make more money than professional rich people. Worn almost exclusively by rich black people who want to flash their swag, and rich rappers who won't settle for less. Worn by Pharell and more expensive than my first daughters wedding.
Man, those Bape clothes are like the Brooks Brothers of the hood.
