    Many, if not most, television shows depict men in uniform (including the de facto uniform of suit and tie) or as sloppy. What examples can give you of shows or male characters on TV who are dressed casually in a way that normal guys wouldn't mind emulating? For example, does it get much better than in Friends and Two and a Half Men?

    You don't meet too many normal people on this forum...

    I don't know who would want to dress like Charlie.

    The fellow who plays Will on "Will and Grace" always seems to look sharp.

    How about a bit more fictional?

    Plenty of people wear shirts like him. It's the Jon Cryer character whom guys wouldn't want to copy much.

    It seems that the Will character was often wearing suits, but the casual look also appears well done. However, it's hard to believe that many male fans of the show would deliberately copy a gay character's look.

    I've always thought this was a good casual look:

    I would probably have gone for Barney over Fred, but he's probably just a more straightforwad fit...
