I was just thinking about how this winter I was gonna dress like a member of the Night’s Watch, since my cold weather wardrobe basically consists of nubby boiled wool and pebbled leather shit.
Both designers put on a valiant effort, but nothing—I mean nothing—compares to the original. Whether or not you agree with their excess, insistently plosive pronunciation the word “cock,” Game of Thrones has the most enthralling, sumptuous and thorough costume design of a TV show ever. Hell, I’ve sat through midget sex to bask in this garden of sartorial delights.
And to think how many times I’ve been ribbed by my peers for wearing all black. Who knew my essential conservatism could find such inspiration?
UPDATE: This too.
