In celebration of Hannibal’s Hotly anticipated 3rd season premiere tonight I thought I’d share my personal views on why the good doctor is, in my (almost) professional opinion, why he is the best dressed man on television
- He’s not afraid of color
Most tv men in suits are locked within an almost clone like coordination- dark suit white shirt, dark tie- however hannibal is constantly wearing exciting patterns and colors that diminish everyone else on TV honestly. He can rock a crisp white three piece during the winter (which is unheard of but oh look he did it), a fan favorite red/ dark grey windowpane, blues and browns with very regal and commanding peak lapels and fittings that don’t just cast a shadow over everyone else- its the whole god-damn sun.
- He’s consistent, but not a slave
Typically, at least for the first three seasons found in three piece plaid suits with peaked lapels and a ticket pocket button cuff spread collar shirts, pocket squares, and paisley ties. While that already outshines most characters on tv, he doesn’t stop there- on one occasion he had a velvet jacket and ascot, this season he’s doing more with double breasted suits, and another stunning white suit.
- Even his more casual is better than most
While he doesn’t have a big casual wardrobe, when he’s found in his beautiful textured button up shirts, or even his excellently made leather jackets (also debuting this season) he stands on top of a mountain over.
In conclusion eat it (pun intended) Don Draper, Barney Stinson and the rest, and bow to the king, or, better yet, kiss the cook.
