I know the fur scarf is supposed to be the problem, but it's the ridiculous bow tie and awful shoes that really bug me.

What's your point? He's an entertainer, not a frumpy black-tie purist.

bow tie and tux are probably Lanvin (see SoCal), not sure I would wear it but it fits in with the entertainer vibe.

Given how loud Kayne West dresses, I find that this is fairly tasteful. I dislike his shoes, but I guess he's trying to going for a streetwear/formal look. The bowtie is also loud, but not distasteful.

Really, it depends on what lapel he has and whether or not he has a pocket square.

I like it.

yup - maybe he coulda pulled it off if he had the fun attitude or something for it but in this photo just doesn't work. I don't think he feels comfortable, btw

shoes + watch - OK, I can see this, but the bow and the scraf thingie dig him in.
