Walter White’s Wardrobe From Breaking Bad

Giorgio D'Antonio

A Breaking Bad Wardrobe.

Walter White's Wardrobe From Breaking BadBreaking Bad ended some time ago, and boy was it a fantastic show. Cliffhanger after cliffhanger had viewers in for a wild ride, and it ended with a perfect conclusion of all the intersecting story-lines.

Walter White proved to be the ultimate bad boy, and had a fitting end. Not that he dressed uber stylishly in the series, but his wardrobe had some telling signs that fit his personality on the show quite well. Let’s investigate them a little.

Walter’s evolved from a mild mannered, straight laced high school teacher to a formidable, mythic crystal meth maker.  During his gradual change in character, he’s also undergone a transformation visually.  We’re going to discuss his style and what it takes to go from Walter White to Heinsenberg.

A dark blue dress shirt with buttoned down collars is laid back, but the black slacks give him a sense of authority. The goatee doesn’t hurt either.

The chino’s are long gone. He’s looking sharp in a navy, pin striped dress shirt and black dress pants. Looking less teacher and more gangster.
