Mystery: English Dudes Shopping In Sherlock Holmes’ Wardrobe?
Bad teeth aside, the idea of English guys is quite romantic. You’ve got your Hugh Grants (awkward/charming), Colin Firths (will fight a man in a fountain for you and love you “just as you are”), and Jude Laws (OK, not romantic, but is damn hot and is one fantasy lay). Needless to say, the accent and cute attire of button-up shirts and oxfords doesn’t hurt either.
While we love Brit style, we’re a bit turned off (we think) by the following weirdness: apparently, guys in London are outfitting their wardrobes with Sherlock Holmes-esque duds. Reports Sify.com, “Shopping street Savile Row tailor James Sleater … said that fashionable Brits are desperate to get their hands on calf-length, tailored coats, just like the ones actor Cumberbatch wears on the TV series on ‘Sherlock Holmes’ … very long coats and even capes are going to be fashionable this winter and when worn with professionally tailored white shirts.” Or perhaps that’s hot?
