The latest television season gave us a lot to love, including a number of characters who were serving up more fabulous fashion than we've seen in recent issues of Vogue. From the late-60s swagger of Mad Men’s men, to Kurt Hummel’s Glee-ful garb, the menswear revolution was indeed televised. So put down the clicker and get on the runway for the 10 most stylish characters on TV this season.
Nolan Ross, Revenge (ABC)
After a shaky second season, Revenge
returned to form as did its resident bisexual billionaire (Gabriel Mann), whose wardrobe proved as deep as his pockets.
Schmidt, New Girl (FOX)
Schmidt (Max Greenfield) gets giddy over his meticulous attention to detail, as would anyone would who could make sweaters and cardigans look this good.
Doug Guggenheim, House of Lies (Showtime)
Proving what a difference a beard makes, this season Doug (Josh Lawson) grew some facial hair, and it fits him well. As does pretty much everything, particularly a pair of suspenders.
Harrison Wright, Scandal (ABC)
Even in the face of not-so-uncertain death, Harrison (Columbus Short) remains the picture of cool. His style will be missed, but then again, boss Olivia Pope has more than enough to spread around.
Cameron Tucker, Modern Family (ABC)
It’s important to have an individual style and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) has certainly found his: a seemingly endless parade of his trademark dress shirts with their matching collars and cuffs.
Kurt Hummel, Glee (FOX)
Kurt (Chris Colfer) and his improbably chic outfits find a better home in New York, where Porcelain is free to rock out with his smocks out. How he can afford couture on an undergrad budget, however, strains credibility — even by Glee’s standards.
Tom Haveford, Parks and Recreation (NBC)
Pawnee, Indiana, is no fashion capital, but that doesn’t keep Tom (Aziz Ansari) from renting swag all over town. And his prom look would have Kanye West green with envy — if Yeezy believed in mixing secondary colors.
Roger Sterling, Mad Men (AMC)
Before swag was even invented, Sterling (John Slattery) had it in spades. So much so he can even look dapper while getting high and peeling potatoes with a bunch of goddamn dirty hippies.
Sterling Archer, Archer Vice (FX)
This season, the foul-mouthed spy traded in his buttoned-up spy suits for the slightly more casual wardrobe of a drug runner, but in true Archer style, he still couldn’t keep it in his linen pants.
Barney Stinson, How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
Having exchanged his power suits for fishnets and stilettos, Neil Patrick Harris's tailored perfection will be sorely missed now that HIMYM
has gone to sitcom heaven. Say hi to Bea, Rue, and Estelle for us!
RuPaul Charles, RuPaul’s Drag Race (Logo)
We all know Mama Ru can turn it out in drag, but it takes some serious style to outshine the queens of season six out of it. Now, sissy that suit!
