Kanye West continues to prove that all-black ensembles look sleek and refined.

The “All Falls Down” rapper was spotted in Los Angeles while having an outside meeting yesterday. For the outfit, ‘Ye opted for a baggy black leather jacket that tied the rest of his getup together. Underneath, he slipped on a neutral-colored T-shirt that was barely visible due to him zipping the jacket all the way up. He paired these items with skinny black jeans that added a nice contrast with the leather. He accessorized with a black balaclava that hid his face.

When it came down to the shoes, West slipped on a pair of tall black boots by Black Diamond that featured an embossed print on the front upper of the shoes and a treaded toe cap, which made the shoes appear more rugged. They also incorporated two handgrips on each side to help with putting them on.
