I might have to, good idea!
Nothing will ever surpass the Hat, but given the chance I would banish the arm-pocket-jumper to the great Charity Shop in the Sky.
See, other anon, you’re not alone. Tumblr is your support group. We’re here for you.
The first step is introducing people to Benedict.
The second step is slowly influencing them to recognise his beauty.
The world will be assimilated. Don’t you worry about that.
Benedict adoration is a lifelong affliction. Once you go ‘Batch, you never go back.
I think that’s why he started wearing the hat to events again, to hide his roots. It looked to me like he kept skipping the conditioner when washing his hair, because sometimes I do and it looks all weird and fluffy like his did.
I think I read somewhere that either Moffat or Gatiss (Gatiss I think) confirmed they’d filmed some of the follow on scenes “after the fall”, so if Sherlock’s in hiding and they don’t need to film and ‘flashback’ scenes, I bet there’s a possibility they’ll give Sherlock a different hairstyle.
What do you guys think?
It was for Parade’s End, so it’ll be worth it, more Benedict on TV! And that’s always a good thing, right? Even if he’s blond. And he dyed it black for Star Trek eventually. It wasn’t that bad, really.
You can even sing “Ben-e-dict” instead of “Val-e-rie” in the chorus, if you like.
Not that, you know, I do that, when I listen to my iPod. No. I do not do that. Never.
His blond hair isn’t the best colour on him (he looks much better when ginger or dark brown, in my opinion), but he can still carry it off. I think the braces/blue shirt would have still looked super hot even if he was blond.
When he styled it like above, it looked better than when it was left to run free and wild, like below.
But, he still looks far cuter than any man in their mid-30s has a right to.
I shall accept your gratitude graciously, and extend my own thanks to Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch and his very unique approach to fashion.
If he doesn’t come back for the BAFTAs I will hunt him down and take him there myself. So help me God.
Bloody hell, Cumberbatch, what do I have to do to get you to come home?
You should come home right this minute, young man. You’ve made Bernard Cribbins cry.
I’ve just peeked at the photos. I’m going to give him the benefit (I totally wrote “benedict” the first time haha) of the doubt and say that I bet he shipped all his clothes back to the UK ahead of him, and he was stuck with one of Martin’s old shirts and a ratty old baseball cap.
Because, really, that’s the only explanation I’ll accept for why he’s wearing it. And you don’t want to disappoint me, do you, Ben?
I’ve not seen it! Was it a trilby? Or his baseball cap?
I shall defer to the lovely Tom Hardy, who decreed:
“Not everybody runs in the Olympics. Benny should be running in the Olympics. I can see an Olympic runner in him.”
Although, this was on the same day they began a joint interview with tales of bismarcking each other, so…
As for the most sartorially successful sport? Hmm. I think I’d have to go for tennis. I do rather enjoy a nice set of tennis whites. The fact that the gentlemen wear rather lovely and well fitting shorts is neither here nor there.
Although, come to think of it, these are some rather natty golf trousers:
I’mma buy this porkpie hat, and wait patiently for him to arrive back at Heathrow.
The premise of Tamara Drewe is that Tamara (Gemma Arterton) returns back to her home village, so it’s set in the countryside.
The premiere was decorated with fake grass and plastic animals (sheep and cows, at least). He didn’t bring the lamb with him, he picked it up from one of the displays :) because he’s a dork.
The black trilby’s the most unflattering in my opinion. The fedora he wears in Third Star is fairly flattering, though.
The white hat from the Tamara Drewe premiere has grown on me over the past few months - I actually kind of love it now.
