42. Adam Kimmel

Occupation: Designer, Adam Kimmel

Many of the best-dressed menswear designers in New York have a consistent, understated approach to style. Adam Kimmel is one of those dudes. His collections tend towards the classic, but his presentation is often anything but. He’s designed a collection inspired by Snoop Dogg, shot a lookbook at a rodeo, and staged a shoot with David Blaine, fitted in a Kimmel tux, swimming with sharks. So, even though his look may fall into the “cool dad” category, he still knows what he's doing.
