Best Dressed Men On Televsion, Part. 5 (Final Pick)
As I bring this week to a close, I am truly exhausted from all of the hater comments. I knew these posts would be challenging, but as my picks are criticized, I have yet to see an alternative list. Regardless, my last pick is another Gossip Girl character, and one that I have never featured on this blog.
Nate Archibald is the WASP character on the show Gossip Girl. His family is the Vanderbilts, and he exemplifies casual preppy at its best. Is he as creative as the shows character Chuck Bass? No! His style is simple, but preppy and he is often seen with shirts untucked, etc. This style was referenced in the Official Preppy Handbook as the rebellious preppy, and that is Nate's character to the bone. He is a wandering soul that is trying to figure out where he belongs in this world.
Even though I am bringing this series to a close, I do want to list a few honorable mentions. This list includes, Carlton Banks (Fresh Prince of Bel Air), Ben Stein, and Andre (Outkast).
The shirt untucked preppy look should never be worn by men that have graduated from college. This is a teen/college years rebellious look.
