In his latest film, André Benjamin 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”.
Although, by now, we are all weary of celebrity clothing lines, but Andre 3000 might just be obsessed enough to pull off a believable line. I guess we will have to wait and see. Via nymag.com
