If your standard outward appearance leads to your emoji looking like this, then by golly you're doing something right.

... we had to include him.

We know this is a gallery of drivers, but we'd be remiss if we excluded crew chief/Canadian culture icon Cole Pearn. He's admirable because of the diversity of his fashion choices. The man looks as comfortable in a black T-shirt as he does in a black T-shirt.

Fashion is about individuality, courage, and standing out in the crowd. Being the daisy in a field of weeds. That's why his daring choice during the 2011 Myers Brothers luncheon put him on this list. He felt not the need to adorn himself in a run-of-the-mill suit-and-tie ensemble. Or he didn't realize he was supposed to wear a suit-and-tie ensemble. Whatever. Either way, he shines amongst the fashion conformity of all the other drives. Even whoever the really short one is behind Carl Edwards.

This whole gallery is just an excuse to get this picture back on the internet again.

Matt DiBenedetto's adherence to the “Less Is More” style is admirable. Thoughts and prayers to every shirt he owns that still has sleeves on it. We would appreciate if he doesn't go any less than this, however. He would totally walk around in the garage in merely a codpiece to show off freshly blasted quads if he could.

I mean just look at that dude. Sophistication. Class. Perfectly calibrated beard length. If he ever retires, look for him to take over as the next "Dos Equis Most Interesting Man in the World."

Said Oscar de la Renta, “Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself." I'm not sure exactly what that means but I think it applies to this picture of Bubba.

Kurt Busch has become our sport's most sophisticated bon vivant. Hob-nobbing with the royal family in England. Having a “The Great Gatsby"-themed birthday party. If there is ever a "The Office"-style Finer Things Club in the garage, look for Kurt to be president and founder.

The obvious No. 1 choice. The standard setter. The bastion of bespoke apparel. The man who likes a loose race car but a tight pair of denim jeans. The man who was featured in GQ magazine. He who has been passed the Haute-Cou-torch from his uncle, Derrike Cope. HIS SOCKS WILL KICK YOUR ASS.
