Bright spot: When it comes to style, the star of USA's Royal Pains prioritizes comfort with a touch of charisma. "I always try to be bold whether it means wearing a funky hat or colorful socks," says Feuerstein, who lists Prada, John Varvatos, Armani and Paul Smith as his go-to designers. Stars whose style he admires? "Matt Bomer, who manages to pull off every insane three-piece suit and hat, and Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love."

Dad's rad: "Growing up I always appreciated my dad's amazing sartorial splendor," says the native New Yorker. "As a lawyer in Manhattan, he wears a bowtie and suspenders and sock garters everyday of his working life. He wears mint green and pink and, beautiful suits and shirts."

Pointers from a pal: "My friend [actress] Leah Remini is always texting me, trying to get me to dress more like Andy Garcia in Ocean's 11 and to wear cologne and look like Al Pacino or something," says the dad of three. "But sometimes the too-nice clothing on a daily basis is just as not as comfortable as a pair of jeans or a t-shirt and a comfy suede jacket by John Varvatos!"

Quote: "For style and cosmopolitan charm, NYC is the center of the universe."
