    Shoes are pretty weird as is the scarfy thing but he apparently knows the rules at least.

    They are patent, he's wearing a cummerbund, the bowtie is well tied, it seems to fit well...

    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.

    minus the shoes and the scarf he looks better than 90% of the people that do black tie. Considering that he is a "celebrity" and they need to be different, I have seen a hell of a lot worse from their ranks.

    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.

    (but then again, I also like his music, so what do I know?)

    The red/yellow watch makes it that much worse. Looks like something that came out of a Cheerios box.

    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.
