Hannibal (http://www.ew.com/topic/hannibal)
Posted August 29 2015 9:27 AM EDT

Hannibal ends on Saturday night. It has been wild, crazy, strange,


scary, romantic, Sopranos-esque
(http://www.ew.com/article/2015/08/27/how-hannibal-was-sopranos),
just plain great. We will miss it for many reasons. Maybe not the most

Sign of problems ahead: When alerting a local serial killer to the
authorities impending arrival, Hannibal goes for a tie-optional
sweater-blazer combo. (On this show, Tie-Optional means Up To
No Good.)

or a darker suit with a bright-white pocket square, the Hannibal style


has officially arrived.

Another first in episode 2: Hannibal and his sitcom sidekick Hannibals


Vest. Karl Lagerfeld wishes he read a tablet like this.

'The Facts of Life' Stars Have Really Chan


(http://www.zergnet.com/i/352876/23483/

Im here for you, says Hannibals face. I am Shiva the God of Death
says that tie matched with that jacket.

A study in contrasts: Jack Crawford, always in black and gray, often


shot with straight-line geometric ties. His tie represents Law & Order.
Whereas Hannibals tie represents Law & Order: SVU FanFic
illustrated by Hieronymus Bosch.

Another study in contrast. Look at Hannibals overcoat (powerful,


passionate, impeccable buttons) and Wills everything. Concrete gray
and puke magenta? Everything that follows between them will be a
fashion intervention.

A closer look at that tie grants us an opportunity to Rorschach some


deeper meaning therein. What do you see when you look at that
necktie? Personally, I see a drop of meteorite sperm cried from the
15th eyeball of Cthulhu.

Sorry, Hannibal, is that a blue-black plaid blazer on top of a blue zipneck sweater on top of a tie?

Sorry, wait, Hannibal, is that yellow-black plaid blazer on top a red zipneck sweater on top of a different tie?

Having reinvented the zip-neck sweater into a crime-scene threepiece, Hannibal settles down with a tie that looks like a sonnet about
a bloody water lily.

Up to no good in a tie-optional combo of that yellow-black blazer and


a zipper-free sweater.

Letting his hair down and his vest breathe with Alana.

Like No. 1, but with more patterns this time, because the madness
rises.

Thought bubble over this outfit. Me? Cook humans? Im just the
humble manager of a successful brokerage concern!

A gentlemen knows when to wear a suit, and when a set of demure


black slacks will do just fine. Note how Hannibal is making the same
expression as the pocket square.

Hannibals most and least subtle outfit: The devil-red shirt/square


combo.

Before dinner time, a gentlemen only removes his jacket if he is


planning to put on an apron.

Hannibals bathrobe is obviously an homage to Number Six in The


Prisoner
(http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/26700000/Number-Sixthe-prisoner-26750034-1024-768.jpg). Or maybe its a kimono?

(http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/26700000/Number-Sixthe-prisoner-26750034-1024-768.jpg).

Dinner with friends, back to plaid.

Red patterned tie on a red shirt, symbolizing the nefarious allure of


the forbidden.

Red patterned tie on white shirt. Symbolizing the battle between good
and evil.

Stare into that tie long enough, and it becomes the Night on Bald
Mountain scene from Fantasia.

The tale of the lonely yellow pocket square, cast adrift upon the Great
Sea of plaid teal.

Return of the Yellow Pocket Square.

Never has a paisley tie looked more like a slumbering mystical


serpent of lore.

In episode 6, we meet Frederick Chilton, eternal pretender to the


throne. Chilton doltishly pairs an ill-patterned tie with a licorice-candycane shirt and a tan blazer. Obviously, this means war. And when
Hannibal goes to war

he reveals his full power with a casual unbuttoning. GAZE UPON


YOUR PAISLEY DOOM, FREDERICK CHILTON.

In the present, Hannibal and his paisley pet listen patiently to Jack
Crawford describe his long-lost student, Miriam Lass.

In the past, Hannibal and the tie he carved out of your mothers
garden prepare to give Miriam Lass the long-lost treatment.

Midway through the first season, Hannibal decides to stop fooling


around. Thus, tux.

Thus, purple.

Thus, scarf.

Thus, vest on salmon.

Thus, vest plus rolled-up sleeves.

Thus, a rare moment of de-vested glory. Because sometimes it is


merely enough to let your tie breathe. In Hannibals world, skinny ties
were never invented. Nor digital watches. Nor whatever we wear now
instead of pocket squares.

Addendum to the rule about jackets before dinner: It is barely


acceptable to remove it if you are rescuing someone from an organfetishist EMT serial killer.

Clean white shirt = Normcore Lector.

Black tie over an apron = Food Network Lector.

When hosting a dinner party filled with annoying people eating other
annoying people, sometimes a subtle tie is the best tie.
