    It takes a rare breed to truly appreciate Wodehouse.

    Gossip Girl is god awful. I was forced to watch it once and wanted to blow my brains out. Wodehouse on the other hand is amazing. Different strokes, I guess.

    I think some of his outfits are alright but they are loud for the sake of loudness.

    it's not like he picks his own clothes out

    Thats why I said chuck bass, the characters name... rather than Ed Westwick, the actors.

    while i don't think he looks the part exactly, i'd say the flashy clothes he wears match the character. [​IMG] [​IMG] and this following picture is a bit too large for the forum, but you get an idea. http://images1.fanpop.com/images/pho...7-967-1450.jpg

    I've always had mixed feelings about the character's style, because I'm probably about 3 flamboyant outfits away from sartorially mind-melding with him. That said, he's generally a bit "more flounce to the ounce" to be truly great and some of those silhouettes, fabrics and colour combos hurt the eyes on occasion

    I like his style a lot, and yes, not everyone can pull it off.

    "Friends" cast got payed a million/episode. Are you telling me in light of this a show can't afford a 1000$ pair of shoes to use in a single episode? Besides they will be sold at 3,000 after the show is done, possibly giving the show good rep as the profits can be donated to charity.

    This is faulty logic.

    This is faulty logic.

    Indeed. Television production budgets are usually fairly small - there is would be no reason for a show to needlessly spend an extra $800 on a prop when a cheaper one would suffice.

    I like his (the character's) style. It works well for him, and would work for anyone in his socioeconomic situation as well (with a pinch of good looks thrown into the pot). I view Chuck Bass as something like a runway show - interesting, visually-pleasing, but not at all practical for the common man.
