Lately, Kanye West‘s Twitter account has been quiet, but this past weekend he used it to get something off his chest (again): his thoughts on how poorly dressed New Yorkers are.

“Just driving through the city and I see a few things I hate…” the rapper wrote. He then went on to declare every unfashionable look he spotted in just a five-block trip:

“I hate button up shirts with hoodies,” he Tweeted first. Going into more detail, he added, “I hate sport coats with button up shirts, jeans and dress shoes.”

But that wasn’t the end of it; he then declared his hatred for “khaki trench coats with jeans and off brand work out sneakers,” khaki cargo shorts and “big ass striped scarves.”

His final critique? “I hate long ass sideburns with the line up RnB beard.”

West ended his rant by — not surprisingly — defending his choice words. “#I’m on my snob.”

Since the rapper-turned-designer surely knows how he doesn’t like people to dress, let’s hope new girlfriend Kim Kardashian is taking notes. Tell us: What are your fashion pet peeves?
