Andre’ Benjamin’s Essentials of Cool

Anyone who knows me, know's that: 1. I'm from the A-town 2. I'm All about Fashion and 3. That I think Andre 3 stacks is one of the most talented guys in the world… hands down. I was browsing the net and found this supercool list of Andre 3000's 10 Essentials, check it…
 


1. Bejamin Bixby Oxford Button-Collar Shirt
Andre says, "I dress it up, I dress it down. I can rock it with damn near anything"

Cindy says, "The best things about button-collar shirts are the versatility, every urban gent should own a few… actually, more than a few (Ralph Lauren has great ones too)"

Product Details: Price $225 at barneys.com


2. Native-American Beaded Necklace
Andre says, "I wear it almost everyday — even when nobody else can see it, it's under there somewhere."

Cindy says, " Everybody has that one thing that they always wear for whatever reason, Andre's is a native-american necklace, one of my best friend's is his braided leather bracelet… whatever it is, it should be appropriate and tasteful and you should hide it, like Andre does, when it doesn't match."

3. Wes Montgomery
Andre says, "With Jazz I get a pure mood music for my own thoughts instead of being bombarded with another person's lyrics. I can think alot clearer. It's the next best thing to silence."

Cindy says, "I completely agree with Dre, I use jazz to relax and just be free. When you're stresses and trying to chill go to pandora.com and listen to John Coltrane radio."

4. Converse Chuck Taylors
Andre says, "Black, navy, or natural will always work. For me,, they bring any look down to earth."

Cindy says, " Ditto- Converse were on the Essentials of Cool List I made a few weeks back"

Product Detail: Price $44.99 at converse.com

5. Slingbox
Andre says, "It's a lifesaver when I'm out of the country during football season. I get to watch whatever game is on my television at home. College or pro, I'm always down to watch some pigskin."

Cindy says, "I've heard of the slingbox, but have never looked it up to find information on it, but now that I have it seems like the perfect gift for someone who travels alot"

Product detail: Price $179 at slingmedia.com

6. Italian Style
Andre says, "Anywhere I can jump of a plane and spot a gent in the summertime looking cool as the winter is a place for me."

Cindy says, "Ummmm, duuuh, Italian style is always great, I love seeing pictures of Italian street style- it's flawless"


7. Blackberry 8700
Andre says, "Sad, but my crackberry cell phone has become my linus blanket. I never put it down. Brain tumor, here we come."

Cindy says, "Back during high school and early college I was all about the Treos, but now that I have a blackberry it just doesn't seem possible to go any other way- the email system is the BEST hands down, but the iPhone is giving Blackeberry's some stiff competition."

Product Detail: Price $100 at t-mobile.com

8. Atlanta
Andre says, "Not one place in particular, because if I gave it away, it wouldn't be the go-to-spot anymore, now would it? No matter where I may roam, I love coming home to reboot."

Cindy says, "It's aaaallll about Atlanta enough said. lol"

9. Benjamin Bixby Braces
Andre says, "Either navy-and-white-striped or firehouse-red. I feel safe and comfy in them."

Cindy says, "I love braces on men, but you have to wear them right… I'll do an article on them pretty soon. Nordstrom has some of the best braces"

Product Detail: Price $135 at barneys.com

10. Hank Aaron-Era Atlanta Braves Cap
Andre says, "I've worn and washed it so much that it fits my head perfectly. It reminds me of days in the ballpark with my baseball fanatic cousin."

Cindy says, "This hat is a must, I even have it and I'm a girl. Whether you're from Atlanta or not, this hat is something that's signature classically Andre' and it doesn't hurt to have it in your closet.

Product Detail: Price S22.99 at shop.mlb.com
