Andre Benjamin (also known as Andre 3000) is taking part in the latest ‘Declare Yourself’ campaign which urges American youths to cast their vote as to who should be the next President of their country. Christina Aguilera and Jessica Alba also star in the campaign but it’s Andre’s image that has caught my attention.

Gagged with one of his own bow-ties, the campaign tells that “only you can silence yourself.”

The Sartorialist shoots André Benjamin in Florence

By admin on August 11th, 2008

andre benjamin the sartorialist pitti uomo.jpgScott Schuman had a starstruck moment recently when he snapped André Benjamin outside a shop on the last day of Pitti Uomo.

Apparently the Outkast singer is a big fan of the site and it’s no small wonder considering Benjamin’s interest in menswear and his clothing line Benjamin Bixby. Looking good in a simple ensemble of battered sunhat, white shirt and yellow trousers Benjamin is a picture of easy summer chic. Note the watch with striped bracelet which gives the outfit a bit of interest.

André 3000 talks about Benjamin Bixby and pledges his love for short shorts

By Isabelle on March 11th, 2008

Andre_3000_benjamin_bixbyIn his latest film André Benjamin (pictured at the preview) got a taste for short shorts, the kind that basketball players wore in the ’70s. Semi-Pro was released last week and is a Will Ferrell comedy about you guessed it, basketball in the ’70s.

Benjamin told the New York Times “by the time we started filming, the shorts were like a
second skin to me,” he says. “It seems like you can cut through the air
a little bit better in them.”

So will they feature in his upcoming Benjamin Bixby collection? Well maybe, the range is scheduled to come out in autumn and is inspired by college football circa 1935, André explains that Benjamin Bixby is someone who is "kind of like your uncle, or your granddad, and he has a
closet full of experiences and clothes, and he’s been around the
world".

I’ve got high hopes for this collection, André is a great dresser and visited Italian Factories and Parisian textile fairs to get some inside info. He even garnered some advice from Vogue’s Anna Wintour so I’m pretty sure it should be a hit. One question though, I love his outfit (which includes a Benjamin Bixby tie worn as a belt) but the trousers seem like they could do with a little tailoring, am I right?
