TV these days is filled with stylish inspiration for men, characters who evoke masculinity, style and sophistication in fine tailoring. We’ve picked 5 of our favourites actors, and their characters, who are leading the way for men’s style on our screens at home.
5) Roger Sterling (John Slattery)
The charismatic founding partner of ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce is an icon of matured gentleman style. Although Don Draper is the main protagonist of Mad Men, it’s fairly common for Roger’s wit to steal the scene away from him with a quick one-liner. His command of the 3-piece suit is exceptional and his silver fox styling proves that age is no barrier to the way a gentleman dresses. View Post

No. 5: Simon Baker
Having starred in hit TV series “The Mentalist” and Hollywood blockbuster “The Devil Wears Prada”, Baker made a name for himself as one of the most well-styled gentlemen in Hollywood. In 2013 Givenchy signed him on as their gentleman’s style icon as he headed up their “Gentlemen Only” fragrance campaign and he soon became well associated with the term. His windswept blonde hairstyle is iconic and compliments his suave, well-groomed style whilst at the same time appearing natural. This look is extremely versatile as it suits both casual and smart attire, highly recommended for men with medium-to-long wavy hair. View Post

He became a style icon after Hugo Boss signed him on as their new brand representative. From then on his “suited and booted” style has regularly been cited as one of the sharpest looks around and an inspiration for male styling everywhere. View Post
