Kanye West is known for Tweeting whatever comes to mind, no apologies. He’s been known to send out new music, links to bands he likes, vicious takedowns, hilarious pictures, fashion shout outs, and, of course, unabashed Twitter rants.

Kanye’s latest unfiltered stream of consciousness spew on Twitter is a list of fashion don’ts for men that set him off on a visit to New York City.

The list was long an includes: * button up shirts with hoodies * hoodies with sport coats * sport coats with button up shirts, jeans, and dress shoes * khaki trench coats with jeans and off-brand work out sneakers * khaki cargo shorts * “big ass” striped scarves * “long ass” sideburns with a lined-up R&B beard

West confessed he was in snob mode, but that all of these distasteful fashion disasters were things he saw in a matter of only five blocks.

Yeezy knows of what he speaks when it comes to fashion critiques. He faced a massive critical backlash of his spring/summer 2012 collection at Paris Fashion Week, which the New York Times called “confusing” and saying “most of the clothes suffered from a poor fit.” He bounded back with a warmer reception to his autumn/winter 2012 collection, but not before West got pre-show cold feet and canceled a preview of the collection for fashion critics.

When it comes to fashion West can certainly dish it — but taking it is another matter altogether.
