Male characters good at keeping house

Where can I find male protagonists in fiction who are good (but not overly fastidious) at keeping house? I watched Weekend
last night and felt one of the protagonists (Russell) was a good example. Hikaru Murakami's protagonists would be excellent examples as well.

Russell's domesticity isn't something that's paid attention to particularly in the movie, but my reaction to the opening shots was that his apartment was remarkably tidy and cozy, in contrast to my own (which is really what is prompting this question). I was hoping to find examples in literature and film that feature male characters who aren't obsessive about keeping things clean and cozy around the house, but are just good at it.
