Last year Kanye West was spotted outside of his YEEZY headquarters in Calabasas sporting Shia LaBeouf’s beloved U.S. Army Armor School hat that prior to, the 31-year-old actor wore quite frequently. According to GQ, the cap was gifted to West for his birthday. That moment was ultimately a followup to when Kanye gave LaBeouf a shoutout in a “No More Parties in LA” outtake, as he rapped, “I wish I dressed as fresh as Shia LaBeouf.”

Since, a fairly general consensus in the fashion world is that LaBeouf has become somewhat of a normcore god, largely due to his preferred blend of military and athleisure styles.

In a new interview with Esquire, Shia in turn dishes on his relationship with Kanye, as well as his clothes that 'Ye now has.

After being paid a visit by West who wanted to discuss possible art collaborations, Shia took his mother to one of Kanye's concerts. “She is, of course, obsessed with Kanye West," he insists. "When I brought her backstage, he was a fucking sweetheart to her. And it just felt fair. So I’m like, ‘Go for it, my guy. Take everything you want.’ And he did. He took all my fucking clothes."

Yes, even his Indiana Jones hat.

After that, however, West and LaBeouf seemingly drifted apart, and during a November 2016 concert in Sacramento, Kanye got going with one of his rants and basically called out Shia.

“Shia LaBeouf: Kid Cudi feels a way. Call him,” 'Ye implored, as LaBeouf had directed Cudi in a music video and a short film in 2011, and Cudder was going through some mental health issues at the time.

When asked if he has reached out to Kanye since, Shia responded, “Of course, bro. I fucking love Kanye West. He’s going through a lot. And I don’t know where he’s at or what he’s doing.”

It remains to be seen what their relationship is like to this day, but one thing's for certain, the connection between Kanye and Shia goes beyond that of mere fashion. To read more on West and LaBeouf, head to Esquire now.
