When Kanye West speaks, we listen. Well, maybe not all the time, as he can get a bit long-winded. But for his turn as cover star of GQ's August 2014 issue, West has grabbed our attention once again with his spot-on men's style tips.

In an accompanying online feature titled "The Kanye West Guide to God-Level Fashion," the 37-year-old explains the logic behind his "tonal" style, proving he's learned a thing or two from the Karl Lagerfelds and Riccardo Tiscis of this world.

When explaining his minimalist, pared-down aesthetic (a.k.a. the same look his wife Kim Kardashian has made her "own"), West told GQ:

"Most clothes are black or white. But I don't like all that contrast. It looks either too work, too waiter, or too wedding-y to me. If that's even a word, wedding-y. Anyway, that's why I like tonal. There's less contrast; it's more casual."

But there is one color that gets the Kanye West nod of approval. He said, "Military green is classic, masculine, not too trendy -- all the stuff men's clothes are supposed to be." We couldn't agree more.
