* Winners listed in no particular order
Daniel Zott & Joshua Epstein
Frontmen for the band, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
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.
Caruso Caruso, Lost and Found Vintage, Barney’s, and vintage shops on the road
Topman and Levi’s
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.
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.”
