Man of Style: Andre 3000 Unveils Clothing Line

Andre 3000 of Outkast has unveiled his menswear line at Barney's titled Benjamin Bixby.

His Fall 08/ Spring 09 collection consists of 70 pieces inspired by college football documentaries of the 1930’s. When asked about referencing the 1930's, he says, "You had rough guys who played football, but they were impeccably dressed. So now, if a guy wants to wash his face, they call him a metrosexual or whatever. So my thing is, cut all that out. People feel like just because you like to dress well ... that don't mean you're gay! I don't know where that came from! You know? It's clothes!"

I like this collection, I enjoy the preppy look with an updated twist and my BF wears bow ties so I think he would tag Andre's collection as wearable. You can mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet if you don't want to appear too costume-y.
