Who popularized it: Andre 3000
When we were influenced: 2003 

Though it may not be as popular as Kanye's or Pharrell's, Andre 3000's style transformation over the last decade has been incredible. It's had its ups and downs, but it has shown the full breadth of creativity the ATLien is capable of. Drawing inspiration from the black dandyism of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, 3 Stacks held no punches as he kept history intact down to his knickers, socks and wingtips. And the south latched on to history with him.
