Best Dressed Male TV Characters - Page 5

post #61 of 149
Thread Starter 
OK, I am happy to share the results!smile.gif

I sent an e-mail to over 10,000 customers to have them vote on the most stylish TV characters. You guys helped nominate 70 people. I then edited this list down to 30 after browsing through tons of pictures, and youtube clips (and also using my own personal style preference, sorry...biggrin.gif). This list of 30 was sent to 10,000 customers. Within just 24 hours over 700 customer castes their votes.

Now, the Winner of the "Best Dressed TV Character Award" goes to Neil Patrick Harris Playing Barney Stinson. Two Mad Men Characters (Don Daper and Roger Sterling) made it into the top 10, and a heavy favorite of the Styleforum.net comminity, Harvey Spector, came in third.

In case you are interested, I posted the Top20 List Here:
http://www.cheap-neckties.com/blog/wrapper.php?/archives/493-Best-Dressed-Men-on-TV.html

I will now spend the next couple weeks to write an article about each Character's style. If you got any input or insight, then let me know. I enjoy your feedback and insight!

Cheers,

H

That's what I figured probably happened, given how many of the cast members seem to have made the list.

How is Barney the best dressed? I find his outfits to be bland and boring.

The ties were the worst assault on the senses. Some truly hideous and garish patterns.

Yes a bit bland indeed. But, what I like about his look is how well his suits are fitted, and how the suit cut and choice in ties complement his body type. It might be a bit bland at first, but it is nonetheless contemporary elegant. Wearing bolder patterns and colors also wouldn't suit the character's personality.

Quite the opposite is true for Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl. He is an overly dramatic character that rarely smiles or jokes around. His flashy paisley ties, 3-piece pin stripes suits, and heavy wrist watches are the perfect pair.

Finally, keep in mind that about 800 people voted on it. Unfortunately I don't know about each of these people's style. But I do know that they wear neckties and/or bow ties (since they are customers of mine). So I think it is safe to say that these 800 people know a thing or two about dressing in suit & tie.

Cheers,

H
