From his rose-tinted glasses, sharp fedora and classic trench coat, Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) never fails to make an impression. While there's no doubt that part of Red's mystique lies in his impeccable style, and cool but calculated demeanor, his look is certainly reminiscent of several of America's beloved TV spies and sleuths.

While he lacked Red's meticulousness (the term "disheveled" comes to mind), Falk's Columbo more than made up with his eye for detail when solving crimes.

As secret agent John Steed, Macnee pulled off the "London gent" look from his umbrella, suit, and all the way to the top of his trademark bowler hat.

3. Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes

A modern Sherlock Holmes, indeed, who makes the ladies in London and across the pond swoon over his sleek sartorial sensibilities, that self-conscious smirk, and those sexy coattails.

4. Jack Webb in "Dragnet"

Trench coat? Check. Fedora? Check. Gun? Check. A no-muss, no-fuss look for Webb's Sergeant Joe Friday, known for his stoic, deadpan, and "by-the-book" kind of policing.

5. Inspector Gadget

In spite of his plethora of useless gadgets that often appeared out of nowhere from his trench coat, this cyborg cop remains one of America's favorite animated detectives.

Who else does Red remind you of from classic Hollywood movies and TV shows?
