I don’t know where Andre 3000 of Outkast has been lately but I ran across a picture of him and realized that I would be very remiss if I did not include him here on PreppyBaba.com as one of my favorite Dandi’s.
In my opinion Andre 3000 is the king Dandy of the modern preppy world. Sure, some call his style ‘urban preppy’ but I think it is more than that. He has really raised the bar and elevated the playing field, turning a style that can tend towards the predictable into honest to goodness fashion.
In 2008 he started his own fashion line Benjamin Bixby, it got mixed reviews and has struggled though I saw an article as recent as October of 2011 where his line is now available in Neiman Marcus stores.
Sticking to your guns and being a trend setter is not for the faint of heart. I am inspired by Andre 3000 and will look for his line the next time I’m in one of my favorite stores to shop.
