List Rules List of the male TV characters with the best wardrobes and fashion senses, current or past

List of the best dressed male TV characters currently on TV or from the past. These men prove that males have nearly as many fashion options as women, and they can rock clothes in the same styles, from boho to preppy to mod. This list includes the most fashionable men on TV, whether they dress elegantly or casually.

When thinking of fashionable men on TV, it’s not uncommon to think of men in suits. The suit is, after all, classic men’s formal wear, along with the suit’s cousin, the tuxedo. The most stylish male characters on TV are classed as such because they know how to wear a suit well. Think of the perfectly groomed male cast of “Mad Men,” who not only wear complementary tie, shirt, and suit combos but also wear the finishing accessories that pull looks together: cufflinks, pocket squares, waistcoats, and more.

Or consider fashionable male characters who are usually seen in casual wear. Whether in jeans or slacks, sweaters or t-shirts, these men are always coordinated and always sport polishing touches, such as hats, watches, scarves, or even designer socks. Prefer men in fantastic costume? The hottest male TV stars pull off these looks, too. Can anyone forget the noble looks of Robb Stark (“Game of Thrones”)?

This list contains the best dressed men on TV, the television characters audiences have tuned in to watch just to see what they’d be wearing. Whether they are wicked or altruistic, old or young, they’re all one thing: the most fashionable male TV characters ever seen.
