What is your connection with fashion?

Ben: You know what is amusing? I come to feel like it’s [fashion] developed extra as I’ve gotten more mature and much more interested in the items I put in opposition to my body. It can be often been about ease and comfort initial. And now gradually as I have gotten older, it’s now about shopping for factors that aesthetically are pleasing to me and all all those factors. But it really is amusing as I have developed older it is really turn into much more of a thing that I treatment about.

What are you at present into? Favorites?

My point is classic T-shirts and sneakers. I definitely like sneakers mainly because I am on my toes a whole lot. I do have a awesome very little selection of Jordans and I utilized to do the job at a sneaker retailer when I was youthful. I labored at a position called The Athlete’s Foot when I was a child. So sneakers and vintage T-shirts I really appreciated.

Do you have a favorite pair of sneakers?

I have a pair of sneakers that was provided to me immediately after I did a task that are very unique so I have in no way worn them. But I put on every thing. I’m not a single of these folks that buys anything and puts it in a closet without end. I like Jordan 3’s pretty a great deal. And so the Jordan 3 colorway that I use all the time is a Nick’s colorway. That is what I don now. But at house I have anything referred to as the Jordan 3 No cost Toss Line and it is a Jordan 3, and on the sole of it, there is certainly a line of exactly where Jordan’s foot hit when he took off the dunk from the totally free throw line in the dunk contest.

And it can be extra of a rarefied pair. So I have… That is in a box that I have not taken out but. It truly is my upcoming 1 if I get… I don’t know. It is a exclusive night out sneaker for me.

How would you describe your style?

Oh my goodness. I will not know. It’s so funny. I really don’t seriously get to communicate about it a lot. It really is extra like a… You can find not a large amount of imagined that goes into it, which almost certainly would make me awful at this. But it really is normally ease and comfort first… So through the day it really is just me calming at home and I will have… If I am not likely out, I have these pajama bottoms that I really like from Vermont Flannel, they use the exact same sort of flannel they use on all those like definitely smooth shirts. Then with pajama trousers. And then I am going to wear a really cozy shirt, just from where ever. And then I am going to have on it. I have this cardigan from Scotch & Soda that is super snug and much too big. And so which is a wonderful little loungey issue that I do. But if I am going out, frequently it is a cozy shirt or a classic tee that has a enjoyment graphic on it.

And in excess of that, just a comfy plaid anything or a button up shirt I can button all the way to the prime button, or a cardigan. That is my total thing. But I you should not dress in jeans, for the reason that when I was in substantial faculty, I hated the way they felt from my legs. So considering that then I just stopped putting on jeans. I wear chinos. Rag & bone has these pairs of pants that I don. I have them in a few diverse colours. And so that is pretty much all I don.

So you do not like the texture of your jeans or of any denims?

I have hardly ever… If an individual can convince… I really don’t like rough points on my physique. I like all the things getting to be softer. So I felt like I did not have the patience to break in jeans. And also to be honest, I have not presented it a good shot in a lengthy time. When I was younger, I didn’t have any dollars to obtain excellent outfits, so whatsoever, the minimum high priced pair of jeans I could get had been incredibly tough. I bear in mind telling my dad and mom, “I’m by no means going to put on these once again. I will not want to put on these any longer.”….But I invite any jean firm or a denim corporation to display me a smooth pair of jeans and transform me whenever they want.

Is there anything that you’ve worn in a demonstrate or film that you’ve got incorporated into your personal wardrobe? Either by acquiring the actual piece or by incorporating it into your type in one more way?

Yes. This is a good issue. I did a television demonstrate termed Dwelling of Lies, which had an amazing wardrobe office. I have been extremely lucky in the wardrobe departments. I’ve played with attractive, variety persons. And all the suits were tailor manufactured for me. And there was a large amount of Hugo Boss, I liked Paul Smith. There were a bunch of Paul Smith items in there. And it started out possibly serving to my appreciation of sporting a great suit. And so when that was carried out, I was in a position to get a great deal of people parts so they never go to waste. So I had them at dwelling and I was donning them in all places. I wore the fits from that present to nearly anything. To communicate demonstrates, to regardless of what. And then as I started out to mature out of them, and when I required some thing else, I would give them to my pals and donate them.

I definitely cherished the idea of a piece of apparel residing on. Just like the way that I purchase classic shirts and things. And I know I have pals that just you should not have any satisfies. So I started out with a good deal of these suits, and now I only have six remaining. I experienced lots of, numerous, quite a few, in all probability over 20 of these satisfies mainly because I did this demonstrate for five years… And I have a piece from a good deal of different matters. 

When I like a little something, I’ll try out to preserve it. From photograph shoots and stuff like that, I have a excellent stylist named Sonia Young and frequently I can hold some of that things and it’s terrific. It is lovely. I feel it’s also that now that some a lot more matters are accessible to me, it is really enjoyable to try out out various designs and things like that.

What is the existing project that you are most energized about and what must our readers test out?

I am performing a show that just arrived out called on The Afterparty. It can be a murder mystery. It stars Tiffany Haddish, Ike Barinholtz, Sam Richardson, Zoe Chao, Ilana Glazer, Jamie Demetriou, Dave Franco and me. It can be like a really fantastic demonstrate. The producers and Chris Miller directed all the episodes. And it is really 1 of my preferred filming experiences I have ever been a aspect of. And so another person dies in the initial episode and then the episodes soon after it is Tiffany interviews each individual one particular of us to question what occurred on that evening. And when we retell the story, just about every individual has a various way they retell it. So it’s shot in a diverse genre of movie. So the intimate man shot like a passionate comedy. The badass male shot like a Rapid and Furious film. And then my a single shot was like a daring musical.

So I bought to do songs and choreography and dances and it was just amazing. So I’m super happy of it. And it can be out now and the very last few episodes are coming out weekly on Apple Tv suitable now. So do look at it out!
