2013 Best Dressed List


(page 1 of 12)

Each year, society and style watchers keep an eye on the local scene for sartorial metro Detroiters — those who wear it well wherever they go. The following pages showcase our picks to ‘suit up’ for this year’s team.

* Winners listed in no particular order

Daniel Zott & Joshua Epstein

Frontmen for the band, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

Fashion style:

Colorful, bright, exuberant and edgy on and off stage. “Josh wears slicker, more fitted clothes, where I tend to really be a bit of a wild man,” Zott says. And while Epstein admits to getting help with his wardrobe from his fashion stylist wife, Birta, Zott always dresses himself, and often helps his wife, Nancy, with her wardrobe.

Favorite shops:

Caruso Caruso, Lost and Found Vintage, Barney’s, and vintage shops on the road

Favorite designers:

Topman and Levi’s

Fashion debut:

Both men say they first started paying attention to fashion as teenagers, and both recall it was wearing their first 3-piece suit. “I realized I feel special when I dress up and I liked that feeling,” Epstein says.

Fashion advice:

Zott: “There’s power in clothing that develops our character psychologically. If you do it right, it can help you feel more confident.”

Epstein: “Dress partially for yourself and partially for other people. You only have one chance to make a first impression. The best way to dress is to buy special pieces then build your wardrobe around them.”
