Over the past couple of months I can’t help but notice how young guys are starting to take style seriously. In my opinion it’s the beginning of an interesting movement that I as a menswear enthusiast am very excited for.
Benjamin Seh is one of those young guns who is stealing the spotlight ever where he goes. Whether he’s in a perfectly fitted suit or even a pair of track pants, Ben has found a way to differentiate himself and stand out from the masses. Without further ado, meet Benjamin Seh, menswear’s new young gun.
Describe your style
If most people wear it, or do it – I won’t. I like to come correct and overdress. Think James bond meets Austin powers. That’s my style.
What got you into fashion in the first place?
As a kid, my grandmother had this saying; “ ill faut toujours etre bien habiller” which is French for “ You should ALWAYS be well dressed”. My grandmother has an impeccable sense of style so it stuck with me. I find myself using it as excuse to overdress.
Favorite item in your wardrobe?
I actually have two – my blazer and my pocket square. A blazer to me is like super man’s cape. It represents power, an impact, a statement. In the same light it can simultaneously achieve both a business and pleasure look. Couple that with the right Baffi collection pocket square and you can confidently seize any day.
You feel your best when wearing?
I feel my best when wearing no boxers! Joking. I love wearing unique socks. They can be the staple piece of an ensemble or a subtle accent. Either way, a funky pair of socks adds a lot of personality to an outfit.

How do you approach getting dressed every day?
Well, I start by reciting “ Mirror mirror on the wall…” My mantra is, I never know who I will meet on any given day; I enjoy starting conversations with new people and networking – I’d like to look my best while doing so. Simple.
What is your sartorial pet peeve?
Please gentleman. Do not EVER button up all the buttons on your blazer. Just the middle one. Nothing more, nothing less.
Favorite brand or retailer
I LOVE Beyene Classic. They are a contemporary footwear brand based in Stockholm that makes the cleanest pair of sneakers I have ever purchased. They are so easy to dress up with a blazer, or dress down with a pair of fitted joggers. The comfort and craftsmanship is amazing. Definitely my favourite brand right now. I see a bright future for them.
Who or where do you get your style inspiration?
My style inspiration currently is Russell Brand. He has an incredible sense of style, it’s so unique and different yet he makes all his pieces look so effortless. I respect that a lot.
