    While we're covering the Doctor Whos, the first one had a great cloak:

    hat and Paul Smith-y scarf:

    monocle:

    and these incredible trou:

    Plus, if you crossed him, there was a good chance he'd bludgeon you with a rock or abandon you on a planet to marry some guy you just met.

    Charlie Watts is a very sharp dresser...
    Did anyone see the Top Gear episode with Ronnie Wood? He claims that although Charlie Watts can't drive, he has a huge selection of vintage cars that he simply likes to 'sit in'. He even, allegedly, has a specific suit made to wear for each car. Bill Nighy is also a fairly sharp, and indeed obsessive, dresser. He won't carry belongings with him lest theu ruin the line of his SR suits.

    Takes a good hunter to see the diff between those kinds of mammals.
