Giorgio D'Antonio

A Breaking Bad Wardrobe.

Walter White's Wardrobe From Breaking Bad

Break­ing 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 transformation.

Wal­ter before his trans­for­ma­tion. High waist­ed chino’s and a but­ton down along with the avi­a­tor style glass­es. Harm­less school teacher.

As Wal­ter pro­gress­es into each sea­son, he rarely wears bright col­or hues. This is one of those rare moments when opti­mism is with­in reach.

The dark pants and dress shirt is a depar­ture from the first pho­to, mir­ror­ing his cloudy dis­po­si­tion.

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.
