Kanye West and Jay-Z have been stringing us along for MONTHS now about their Watch The Throne collab album release (which finally has a set date of Aug. 8!!!), but our frustration was immediately washed away the second we saw these two cuties totally broing out in button-up shirts and jeans together. Awwww. The Throne (that’s their official name when they’re together, obvs) is not only a music force to be reckoned with, but they’re also a HUGEHUGEHUGE fashion force—Yeezy’s got his first fashion line coming out soon, and Jay-Z CERTAINLY isn’t afraid to show off his stylish ensembles. But last night, we couldn’t get enough of their casual cool attire (and ’dorbs 100-watt smiles. Yowza!).

’Ye basically never leaves the house without at least SOME gold chains hanging around his neck, and we don’t blame him—he’s got quite the collection. (Cue photo of his pegasus necklace. YUP.) He paired his chains with a heather gray tee, button-up black and white plaid shirt, black skinny jeans with zipper pockets, and sneakers, which would be the PERFECT outfit for a chill midday hang sesh in Brooklyn. Jay-Z went a tad more dressy in a crisp white button-up, dark cuffed denim, and brand spankin’ new Timberland boots. He hid his gold chains under his shirt but let his gold watch shine. We hate picking favorites, but between the two boys, we choose Kanye’s summery layered look over Jay-Z’s ensemble. The combination of textures and patterns makes the look interesting but doesn’t pack on the heat. Also, we kind of want Yeezy’s pants. Not like, his ACTUAL pants, but you know, where to buy them so we can sport them too. Oh, who are we kidding? We want HIS PANTS. WE SAID IT.
