Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC tv series; Sherlock.
“Holmes was created a fashion icon: chic, theatrical, a devotee of a grand silhouette, a fan of a flamboyant accessory. Cumberbatch's version of Holmes's style is entirely appropriate. It's timeless, sleek, minimal, sharp, fastidious, uncompromised, free of any self-conscious quirk intended to offer insight into Holmes's character.
It's lean: completely without flounce or fancy, give or take the swirl on the coattails, a swirl which invokes "cape", without having to go as literal as, you know, actually being a cape.(The coat is part of Belstaff's incoming collection; a brand new waiting list for which had accumulated by the time the end credits rolled on episode one.) It could be a tad sombre overall, if Cumberbatch didn't ignite every outfit with a flash of white from his exquisitely cut shirts (Dolce & Gabbana).“
