André Lauren Benjamin, better known as Andre 3000, is a menswear maven when it comes down to fashion!
He has been blessed with a forward-thinking ability, both on and off the stage that sets him apart from most of his peers in the industry. His bravery and innate ability to know “what’s next” earned him the right to be donned with the title of icon.
If asked to define Andre 3000’s style, we would probably name it, Chic Prep-School Hipster. He has since come a very long way from Southern Playalistic… From dope to dapper, André transitioned from basketball jerseys and oversized tees, to braces and bowties and hasn’t looked back, since! And, in celebration of André’s awesome style swagger, EGL has decided to present you with ten of his best looks rocked throughout time. This one’s for you, Three Stacks… After all, you’ve earned it!
In our number ten spot, is this look from André…
His plaid sleuth style blazer and fedora, over a sweater vest and green polo is classic. We also fell in love with the large cuffed trousers! So well put together, RIGHT!?
The number nine contender is going to Three Stacks in his modern play on Green Acres.
The cuffed plaid polo paired with wide-belted braces and straw fedora, had us at hello!
The number eight position goes to this look worn by André…
Wearing a red short-sleeved polo under a yellow vest and powder blue trousers, Andre 3000 rocked this look effortlessly. Oh, and did we fail to mention the polka dot bandana he used to accessorize? So chic…
Our number seven ensemble is going to this look…
His brown vintage bomber over a crisp white tee and khaki colored trousers flows ever-so-nicely. And, we can’t leave out the yellow and hunter green striped shirt he used to tie around his waist.
The number six slot on our list, goes to Three Stacks wearing this number…
Sporting his signature fedora, again, André combines it with a matching grey blazer over plum colored Benjamin Bixby (his clothing line) sweater, fitted denim jeans and brown riding boots! Ughhh… Do we really have to continue? We most certainly do!
Taking the number five position on the list is Benjamin in his 007 look!
Rocking a classic style tuxedo with a white waist coat, black bowtie and cumberbund, André shows up and shows all what the true essence of being a “Classic Man” really means.
Our number four look from André is simple and clean.
Here, he sports a green vest over a white long-sleeved tee and fitted denim trousers. He accessorizes this look with a chocolate colored fedora and riding boots.
Taking the number three spot is this look…
This time, Benjamin sports a preppy v-neck sweater over a dress shirt and tie. He paired the look with navy blue wide-legged trousers and brogue style wingtipped shoes. So fresh and so clean, is so right!
Squeaking into the number two spot is André wearing this distinguished ensemble.
Here, Andre 3000 sports a navy blue captain’s blazer with a red,blue and white detailed pocket square, over a white polo and straw fedora. This look is so remarkably styled that we just had to place it on the list.
And, last but certainly not least is our number one look!
We selected this look because it’s super simple, easy and clean, but Three Stacks makes it look so complicated and expensive. Appearing settled and right at home, Benjamin exudes a level of confidence that ultimately makes the entire outfit! A clean white dress shirt rolled up to the elbow, paired with khaki trousers, converse sneakers and a straw fedora and his look is complete! Who else do you know with that much style sense?
