wellingtongoose asked: I don't know if anyone has asked you this before but can you do a list of suits you would like to see mycroft wearing in season 3?
Oh, there are so many suits I am longing to see Mycroft in, in series three and beyond!
He needs to wear more tweed and country wear, in a similar vein to that brief scene in Scandal in Belgravia. I love that Mycroft is so conscious about the distinction between country and city clothing, even when just relaxing at home. It’s his version of casual clothing!
I would like a scene set at the height of summer, or in a warmer country, with Mycroft in a cream linen suit and a panama hat.
A blue suit, or one in a Prince of Wales check. We’ve only seen Mycroft’s city suits in black and grey. A lovely navy blue would be very pleasing. Although I enjoy the pinstripe number, I would like to see less of it. Mycroft’s a debonair fellow; he needs more variety. Something a little more striking.
I also have this fantasy about Mycroft at Royal Ascot. If they ever adapt Silver Blaze, they could set it there and this would be quite a natural event for Mycroft to get roped into resentfully attending. I can imagine him in the royal box, in his tail coat, playing with his top hat, bored out of his mind.
I also want Mycroft out of his suits - I want to see his braces! I know they’re there, under his waistcoat, but apart from fleeting glimpses of them on set, they’ve yet to be seen. I want attention to be drawn to all the details of Mycroft’s wardrobe!
Other than that, lots of patterned ties, decorative tie-pins and pocket squares worn in exotic folds. More Mycroft the Dandy rather than Mycroft the Bureaucrat.
Oh, now I can’t wait. I want to see what they’re going to dress Mycroft in now!
