Drake has celebrated the anniversary of Air Drake by dropping off a lavish collection of comfort wear inspired by his jumbo private jet, and the price tags are raising some eyebrows.
The Elder Statesmen-designed merch includes custom hand-spun cashmere socks that cost $415, a blanket that costs $4,100, an eye mask that costs $995, and a bathrobe that will set fans back $3,515.
“First class anywhere you sit,” the caption read on Drake Related’s Instagram. “For the first time ever experience the elevated luxury of Air Drake. @TheElderStatesman crafted an exclusive line of custom hand-spun cashmere socks, eye-masks, loungewear and blankets for your inflight comfort. For a limited time, in commemoration of Air Drake’s anniversary.”
While the price of Air Drake’s goods raised some eyebrows, it was the $415 pair of socks that seemed to cause the biggest stir on social media.
“drake gotta be outta his dam mind selling 1 pair of socks for $415,” wrote one disgruntled person on Twitter, while another said: “these shits better have me floating.”

Drake’s customized Boeing 767 plane was created in 2019 thanks to some help from Canadian-based air company CargoJets, and comes with a theater/entertainment room, three fully enclosed master bedrooms, fully carpeted flooring and can comfortably house up to 45 people at a time.
“Supporting homegrown businesses has always been a top priority of mine, so when an opportunity came up to get involved with a great Canadian company I was honored to do so,” Drizzy said in a statement at the time.
However, his private plane came under serious scrutiny by environmentalists last year when The Guardian published a scathing exposé detailing celebrities’ most audacious private flights and their environmental impact.
Drizzy’s jet had one time allegedly made a 14-minute flight from Toronto to Hamilton, but the 6 God said in a statement the flight was just the plane switching airports for storage.
“This is just them moving planes to whatever airport they are being stored at for anyone who was interested in the logistics,” he wrote on the Real Toronto Newz‘s Instagram page at the time. “Nobody takes that flight.”
In other Drake news, he recently enlisted Taylor Rooks to help model some other OVO clothing he has in the works. In a series of photos and videos posted to Instagram earlier this, Rooks can be seen sporting a black sleeveless jumper with a gold OVO owl on the front.
