I like the simplicity of it and also, keep in mind that Matt Smiths costume changed and evolved during the course of the series.

Hi!

Yeah, I stopped reading the board regularly a while back. Nothing really changed, I just lost interest. I still browse a couple of forums once a week or so though. Usually TNG (for the caption contest) and GTV & SFF. And so, a topic about the new Doctor's wardrobe grabbed my eye!

The kind of suit you'd reverse the polarity of the neutron flow in. As a Pertwee fan, I'm VERY happy about where the show seems to be going. Pertwee wore a ring with a blue stone. Wonder if this new one will be similar?

I miss having regular access to your sartorial insight.

Notice the ring (opps see someone has already mentioned this).
He also seems to be wearing a bracelet, just like Pertwee. I approve. Not sure about the fit of the trousers - it seems a bit off but that might just be the pose.

I kinda wonder now if Moffat or Capaldi already had in mind the basic tie-less look when they shot the end of TOTD.
I think that was just about symbolizing the end of the Smith era through the ceremonial removal of the bow tie. I mean, they made quite a big production out of him taking the bow tie off and dropping it on the floor. That wasn't to set up Capaldi, that was to send off Smith.

Re: The 12th Doctor's Wardrobe Revealed!

While the red is a small call back to Pertwee, this outfit screams Smith more. And I'm okay with it since I liked Smith's Victorian outfit and thought it would've been perfect for Capaldi. Luckily Smith only wore that outfit for six or seven episodes and it's not really identified with him the way the tweed was. Glad to see they thought the same way and didn't stray too far from it.

I like the new look and it's different enough from past Doctors.

The pants seem a little long in the crotch, but that might just be the style. Or the crotch.

Maybe they're his action pants. I remember as a kid they had magazine ads for Chuck Norris Jeans with Extra-Wide Crotch so you could kick someone's ass without splitting your pants.

Hah, should've known the internet wouldn't let me down though I can't find the "Extra-Wide Crotch" wording I remember.

A bit underwhelming, really. It's not a bad outfit, it just doesn't really stand out that much. Maybe it'll work better when we see Capaldi in action wearing it. I do get Pertwee vibes off it, which I like, so there is some promise here.

Re: The 12th Doctor's Wardrobe Revealed!

No one else thinks he looks like a magician? (not the modern grunge ones but the old school ones).

After 3 great outfits in a row (Tennant and Smith's two) this one underwhelms me.
