    Who do you think deserves a TOP10 spot of the "Best Dressed Male TV Character's List"?

    Here some suggestions:
    Chuck Bass, Don Draper, Nucky, Nolan Ross, Barney Stinson, Steven Colbert

    I am surveying style/fashion interested men about this and will be writing an article with the results. Your input is appreciated!

    Thanks

    styles that resonate well with me would probably be don draper, white collar, persons of interest.

    but I get the impression that this crowd rejects the "slim" look.

    probably end up seeing letterman with his bespoke suiting high up the list...

    Thanks for the input. Letterman? In my opinion his look is a bit bland. But I do like the glasses he picks. I think he occasionally wears frames by Tom Ford

    While not all of these shows are still on television, I would say:

    Don Draper - Mad Men
    Frasier Crane - Frasier
    Jack Donaghy - 30 Rock
    Leo McGarry - The West Wing
    Ari Gold - Entourage
    Victor Sifuentes (Jimmy Smits) - LA Law
    Horatio Caine - CSI Miami
    Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel) - Las Vegas
    Sonny Crockett - Miami Vice
    James Rockford - The Rockford Files

    Sterling Archer, suits are bespoke from some house of Savile Row, shirts are T&A, probably also bespeaken.

    And he prefers lace ups with suits but is open to loafers. The KGB is strictly against loafers with suits.
