Nathan Adrian for Tommy Hilfiger

Dedicated. Whip smart. Kind. And let’s just say it­­–—handsome to a fault. Nathan Adrian’s got it all. At 6’5”, the University of California at Berkeley grad led the swim team, among other accolades, to win the NCAA Championship for the first time in 31 years and set the American record for the 50 Freestyle. Since graduating with a degree in public health, he won spots on the 2008 and 2012 Olympic teams where he took home three gold medals and a silver, and racked up a total of 24 international medals including at the World Aquatics Championships.

Nathan is also the newest Tommy Hilfiger menswear ambassador and while he admittedly spends most of his days in little more than a Speedo® swimsuit, for his off-duty wardrobe he has a foolproof system for great style. One: keep it casual with classic silhouettes that can be mixed and matched throughout the year—he lives in California after all. ­­Two: keep it consistent with a color palette of blue, white and red with pops of pattern, guaranteeing whatever is pulled out of his closet will work together seamlessly. Three: keep it natural. Nathan’s training and competition schedule requires a good deal of travel so fabrics such as cotton, denim and linen are easy care, easy wear. Here, he shows off some of his favorite pieces from our June collection.
