We expect our dads to have the wackiest style. But in TV land, whether they dress dapper or casual, some fathers wear only the trendiest and up-to-date duds.
From the uber-stylish Mitchell on "Modern Family" to the classically suited Don Draper on "Mad Men," these dads know how to put together a mean outfit. So forget about grilling -- these TV dads prove that knowing how to dress well is a power skill of its own.
Uncle Jesse from "Full House": He was just the epitome of cool.
Bill Cosby from "The Cosby Show": Because his sweaters are legendary.
Dexter from "Dexter": He has to kill people, analyze blood and take care of a kid all in the Miami heat. He keeps cool with light fabrics and khakis.
Don Draper and Roger Sterling from "Mad Men": These high-powered men dress in 60's-style suits better than anyone else we have seen. Don even looks great in a vacation suit.
Mitchell from "Modern Family": This radical father (pictured right) always makes sure his daughter is just as fashionable as he is.
Phil Dunphy from "Modern Family": He may be the biggest goof, but he sure dresses well in a super-stylish parka when playing golf with Frank.
Rufus Humphrey from "Gossip Girl":The ultimate hipster dad. We wonder how many plaid flannels he wore during the show's tenure.
Eric Northman from "True Blood": Who knew blonde hair, pale skin, and that much leather would look so good.
Mauricio from "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills": Kyle is married to the most stylish father of all the "Housewives" spinoffs. We definitely wouldn't be embarrassed of his style if we were his kids.
