Del Boy falling through the bar. David Brent’s excruciating Flashdance-meets-MC-Hammer-shit dance moves. The one where Kel put the screw in the tuna.

Hallmark TV moments are ten a penny these days, and reasonable currency should you ever need to fill silence on a date/at a bus stop/during a wedding ceremony and want to lay the breadcrumbs to an impromptu debate. But what about the men behind the moments? And more importantly, the clothes that maketh the man? Finely tuned TV threads hold such clout nowadays that entire magazine spreads and fashion trends become devoted to them – Downton Abbey alone has spawned a clothing and paint line. Yes, really.

In the not too distant future, the affable and fashion savvy among us may actually keep our eyes more trained on the box than the catwalks of Milan, Paris and London. But until then, here’s a round-up of the 30 best dressed men ever to grace your TV screen. Move over Milan. All the style advice you'll ever need is right before your eyes. Quite literally. You’re welcome.
