Everyone knows Kanye West has serious involvement in the fashion industry, which makes it more believable that the Kanye West and Jay-Z Givenchy styling for the duo's 'Watch the Throne' tour is a reality.

While on tour promoting their ‘Watch The Throne’ album, the hip-hop heavyweights were seen sporting some intriguing clothing from French fashion house Givenchy. Kanye is decked out in the cornerstone item from the Givenchy Fall/Winter 2011 collection: a wool bomber jacket laced with Rottweiler prints. He also rocks a leather kilt (skirt?), leather pants and his highly anticipated Air Yeezy 2 sneakers. Jay-Z took the more conservative approach, rocking the Givenchy double-layer leather jersey hoodie, cargo pants and traditional Air Force 1 kicks. Jigga tops off the ensemble nicely with his trademark NYC Yankee's fitted cap.

Still no word yet on what Kanye is wearing, but the Internet is abuzz waiting for a confirmation of whether it's a kilt or skirt. Ultimately, the Kanye West and Jay-Z Givenchy ensembles are bringing sophistication and urban swag together. Stats for Couture-Styled Rap Tours Trending: Older & Average
