9. Action Bronson
This Flushing native is the very large embodiment of cozy boy style, a way of living that we definitely co-sign. Whether he was cheffing up a seven course meal, dropping freestyles overseas, or literally committing murder over old school beats, 2012 was the year it was hard to not see Action Bronson rising to the top of music and style. His dope snapbacks, beefy streetwear, and enormous beard were all indicators that this dude gives no fucks and is primed to (continue to) be one of the most stylish hefty dudes this year and next.
