26. Thom Browne

Occupation: Designer, Thom Browne

Thom Browne reinvented the way men in America wear suits. How’d he do it? He let his personal style lead the way. But it’s not just the extreme tailoring, shrunken suits, and sockless look — his oxford shirts are favored by some of your favorite rappers, and his collaboration with Supreme proved that his brand has plenty of cross-over appeal.
