Can we just all appreciate Hannibal Lecter’s style right now? In a time where the Mad Men-esque lean, skinny-tie silhouette has set the standard, here comes Hannibal Lecter with his fat, wide-spread cutaway collar, his double Windsor that’s so thick it looks like a fucking cravat and his matching waistcoats. You guys, what he’s doing here is pretty radical for fashion, which is why I think he pings a lot of people as strange-looking, and why his suits are often read as ‘ugly’. It’s not that he’s doing it wrong, it’s that he’s doing it so very different from what our eyes are used to right now.
Another way how Hannibal asserts himself as 100% masculine and alpha male, by wearing fat unapologetic ties and clothing cut to show off his muscular bulk. He’s the head cannibal in charge.
