Tommy Grimes | Edmonton’s Best Dressed 2020

Musician Tommy Grimes grew up in a small town where retail options — and a sense of personal style — were pretty limited. But that didn’t stop him from dressing by his own rules.

Musician Tommy Grimes grew up in a small town where retail options — and a sense of personal style — were pretty limited. But that didn’t stop him from dressing by his own rules. “I’ve always dressed really differently from everyone and I like to stand out,” Tommy says. “I like to express my individuality.” Now the leopard print, neon colours and punk vibes that he rocks are less out of place, especially when he’s performing — but he still dresses for himself. “My fashion philosophy is to just be yourself,” Grimes says. “Style is a huge part of one’s self-identity so, it’s important to express that.”

Most cherished item: “My Straight to Hell leather jacket from Trash and Vaudeville store in New York City. It’s classic and I can wear it with anything.”
