While the great male style icons were once Hollywood stars such as Messrs Cary Grant (who claimed to have invented the "presidential" pocket square fold) and Gregory Peck, today it seems that most men are taking sartorial cues from the small screen. And it is all about neat tailoring. From the 1920s styling of Boardwalk Empire to modern-day Manhattan power dressing in Suits, today's TV series have an enormous impact on what men around the world wear. So here are eight great shows where the suit is the star.

The second season of Suits premieres on USA Network in the US on 14 June at 10/9c, with all new episodes every Thursday.
