Kanye West's preference for monochromatic clothing has become his signature in recent years. Whether in a fancy tux or dressed down in sweats, West seems to have a strict neutrals policy in place -- especially when he's out with his wife, Kim Kardashian-West.

But as any real Yeezy fan can tell you, it hasn't always been this way.

Long before the days of couples coordinating, there were polos, blazers, red carpet sunglasses and an everlasting love of ripped denim. GQ's Most Stylish Man of 2015 and Vogue's pick for best-dressed at the 2016 Met Gala has evolved sartorially just as much as musically over the years. 

In honor of the dapper dude's 39th birthday, let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we?
