Don’t rub your eyes. The above picture of Jay Z and Kanye West is, in fact, NOT from 2011. Jay and Ye joined forces again LAST NIGHT (March 12) during Austin’s SXSW music festival—a Watch the Throne reunion of epic proportions that was only just announced this Monday (March 10). Amidst many of their solo hits—”Tom Ford,” “New Slaves,” “Izzo (HOVA),” and “Runaway” to name a few—Yeezy and Hov performed Throne classics like “H*A*M,” “Who Gon’ Stop Me,” “No Church in the Wild,” “Otis,” and of course, “N***** in Paris” for their two-hour, 35-song set. But the music wasn’t the only part of the Throne they brought back: They also resurrected their Givenchy performance steez.

That’s right, folks. And not only is “Givenchy Kanye” back, so is “Kanye in a kilt“! Hov and Ye wore longline Givenchy shirts—Carter in black-on-black stars and stripes and West in Dia de los Muertos graphics x Old English font x a studded star collar—but only Yeezy wore a kilt. And according to Fuse’s Joe Lynch, he wore two! One leather with the aforementioned tee and skinny leather trousers, and the other silver and studded and paired with a Givenchy Rottweiler tee, perhaps to match the visuals.
