Maverick Monday: Introducing Rashad Benton

Few men around are adept at the subtle art of style like this week's man-about-town Rashad Benton. A student at Florida A&M University, Rashad's creativity and his erudite eye for style have placed him in our spotlight. From first sight you'd never notice the taciturn and res Fem a very quiet person, low-key type. I keep to myself a lot. I honestly don’t enjoy being rved nature that lies under Benton's refined exterior. In describing himself, Rashad says, “I’the center of attention. Speaking in front of a large group isn’t really my thing.” What Rashad may lack in verbal expression he definitely more than makes up for in creative expression. His blog, HesCockky, is a testament to his alter-ego of the same name, the man who doesn't play by the rules but in a non-proselytizing way. “I do enough to make a statement, but nothing more to be too loud. Artistically [I contribute] nothing honestly I’m low-key so I’m not trying to contribute anything.” Rashad's style's comprises a synthesis of urban style mixed with the elements of classical men's pieces. When asked about his personal style aesthetic, Rashad responds, “I literally take my time on everything I wear. I come home, and the first thing I do is put an outfit together for the next day. Black is my favorite color and I wear a lot of it. I would call my style urban mixed with prep.” Young college men whose attention to wardrobe often lapses as severely as their focus on studies would do well to take a hint in style from Rashad. “I love Button ups, Blazers, Hats, & Ties. I wear a lot of bowties, and just ties In general. Those always add to my outfit. I have a lot of buttons that I add onto my blazers.” Rashad lists Express, 21 Men, Hollister, Aldo, and Coach as some of his favorite brands.
