6. Gay Talese
Signature style: The Last Great American Newsman
Notable work: Penned one of the best magazine articles ever written: Frank Sinatra Has a Cold.
With roots in Italian tailoring, it's no surprise Gay Talese became the man of style he's known as today. His decidedly old school approach to dress mirrors his equally painstaking attention to detail in his articles. Plus, he's one of the few men alive who can actually pull off a fedora.
