Yes - Jeremy Irons and Anthony Anderson. That must have been on the Telly 30 years ago when I saw it as we had to read BR for English O Level. Even as a young lad I remember liking their clothes. I think that inter war period was a great time for good clothes as long (as you were able to side step the depression!) There was a little revival of the slick hair, cricket jumper and light cotton strides look a bit later in the 80s. See the inner sleeve photos in Simple Minds' 'New Gold Dream' album!

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Jeremy Piven as Ari Gold from Entourage.

Yes, Ari's fat Windsor knots can be outrageous and he's often disheveled and fashion-forward, but I think he does a decently good job of dressing well.

Quoted from an earlier SF thread about Jeremy Piven:

His tie and shirt combinations were especially dreadful and his suits never fit and always slid over his neck with reckless abandon, nearly everything about them except the sleeve length were just wrong.




Alright, so you won't have any and you keep smoking the other stuff you've been smoking then...



Honestly, I disagree with the fit comment but tend to agree on the shirt/tie choices. I think this is part of the character though... In any case, I believe Ari is better dressed than 90% of characters on TV shows and maybe in movies as well. It probably has to do with the fitted look of his suits and other clothes - pretty unusual on American TV


For ed, grimslade and the other 3 guys who don't watch the show, you be the judge. Here are a bunch of pics I found on the HBO website (I didn't select at all, just took all of them):


























































There's also Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan from the TV series Blue Bloods.

Although, that other character on the show this season, who is supposed to be the Prince of Monaco looks like he shops in the boys department.
Barney Stinson's fits are usually decent, although I think some of the features are a bit too fashion forward for me.

I feel with Chuck Bass when it's winter clothes he looks pretty good in terms of fits (if I wore suits daily, I'd try to wear a similar style) and it's pretty understated sometimes.

Hill Harper in CSI: NY always stood out to me for a sleeker urban look.

If we are including period pieces (which, of course Mad Men is), then Boardwalk Empire should be near the top. I especially like the secondary characters, as Steve Buscemi is often a bit too flamboyant for many tastes. Suits, I believe, by Marten Greenfield.

Lots of good input guys, thanks!  I can't honestly believe I forgot Ari Gold and Don Draper!  facepalm.gif

 

Anyway, with Dexter, I wasn't talking about the Hawaiian shirts or his linen monstrosities; I was referring more to choices like some of his polo choices and the type of shirts you see below.

The fits of the aforementioned types of shirts usually seem good to me.

He does have good fit, but you can't really dress well in the stank heat of Miami. I know, i use to live there... plain.gif

Micheal Weston in 'Burn Notice'?

Obviously the loose fit of his suits won't get much SF approval, but as you say, there is the 'stank heat' factor to consider, and he certainly scrubs up better than his mate Chuck Finley, or the ginger idiot from CSI.

"Replacing the quiet elegance of the dark suit and tie with the casual indifference of these muted earth tones is a form of fashion suicide, but, uh, call me crazy — on you it works."
