We’re back! We took last week off for Memorial Day, but fear not, Chucksters, the fashion column will continue through the summer. We have a mixed bag of your questions today, so let’s get to Chuck costume designer Robin Lewis-West’s answers.
George, bless his heart, has been asking and asking about where to find Morgan’s checkered/plaid shirts. We weren’t ignoring you, George, it just takes a while to get to each question. Robin sourced his closet-full of plaid shirts from a variety of retailers, including Guess, Gap, and Marc Ecko.
Dianne was curious about the belt buckle Lester wears in “Chuck vs. Agent X”, an open-work design that alternately looks like a wolf or an owl, depending on my mood. Robin pulled that from her private stash, but you can find something similar, a traditional Chinese knot, here or ask an experienced silversmith to recreate the design Lester’s wearing.
It’s summer in the Northern Hemisphere, so answering questions about coats and jackets makes me hot and sticky, but hey, you might be able to score a deal in the off-season! Katja has been wondering where to find Sarah’s black leather jacket from “Chuck vs. the Fear of Death”. It’s the Vince Leather Motocross Jacket, and it’s deeply discounted at Bergdorf’s, but it’s going out of stock fast!
