He's a rich unfriendly man.
He's an unfriendly rich man.

I'm confused two sentences above. Can you help me? Which one is correct? Thank you, guys!

Cheap is a descriptive adjective.

Rich and Unfriendly are not general opinion but specific opinion adjectives. They (usually) describe people. So both your sentences are grammatically correct.

But they would only be idiomatic in certain contexts.

"They're all rich men."
"Yes, but he's an unfriendly rich man!"

"They're all unfriendly men."
"Yes, but he's a rich unfriendly man!"
