Bows-n-Ties.com, a prominent men’s tie retailer, today announced that it will be publishing a series of articles on the five worst dressed men in recent television history. The series focuses on prominent television characters from shows that have aired within the past 25 years, including Family Matters, Monk, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Simon Cowell’s talent showcase X Factor.
“Analyzing television fashion can be a lot of fun, because some actors are purposefully dressed in a poor manner in order to further build upon the persona of the character that they play,” says Bows-n-Ties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “Poking through history, it’s not difficult to identify TV characters that simply wouldn’t have been the same without their supposed lack of fashion sense, so we decided it’d be a fun idea to create an entire series of articles devoted to this premise. While highlighting the best-dressed individuals is educational and more than worthwhile, sometimes it can be even more fun to focus on the opposite.”
Each article in the series focuses on one specific television character, with the first piece highlighting previous X Factor host Steve Jones. Jones is criticized for his exceptionally proportionally slim ties, as well as suits that make him look like he’s choking himself. Other pieces highlight Mad Men’s Michael Ginsberg, Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman, Monk’s Adrian Monk and Family Matters’ Steve Urkel.
“Some of these characters exist in modern day television, and may not be quite as well known as household names like Steve Urkel,” says Pohl. “That said, there are plenty of reasons to focus on these individuals, as some of them play key roles in the landscape of modern American television. Again, we’re not trying to say that the actors themselves don’t know how to dress; we’re focusing specifically on the characters that they play."
Pohl hopes to continue captivating audiences with “worst and best dressed” lists, with plans to cover many other aspects of popular culture in future series.
“Suffice to say, our readers simply love hearing about pop culture icons that could stand a few tips regarding their appearance,” says Pohl. “These lists have been very popular ever since we first started publishing them, and we see no reason to slow down anytime soon. While we can’t yet reveal exactly what our focus will be for the next series, we can promise that our audience is in for a real treat.”
