3. Alex P. Keaton
Show (Air Dates): Family Ties (1982-1989)
Actor: Michael J. Fox
Way before Kanye was bragging about his revolutionary pink polo, Michael J. Fox's clean-cut, money-hungry character Alex P. Keaton schooled us on preppy style. Fueled by argyle sweater vests, button-down collars, broad-shoulder blazers, and a gently feathered and side-parted 'do, the Young Republican showed viewers what '80s conservatism was all about—both ethically and sartorially. And, despite your politics, it's hard not to salute such time-tested classics.
