Dear readers, this week where the focus is on crime ‘S’ is for *S*leuths and their outfits…
Here are some familiar, signature items of clothing in movies and on TV:

Denmark’s The Killing – and those jumpers! (below)
Starsky & Hutch – those cardigans!
Inspector Clouseau – umm, disguises
Miami Vice – rolled up sleeves
Columbo – that raincoat ...
Hill Street Blues – fingerless gloves & beanie
Kojak – hats
French Connection – porkpie hat
Ashes to Ashes – white leather jacket
France’s Spiral (Engrenages) - vests ... and vests!

And here I had managed to put Starsky and Hutch behind me...
Fun post though!! I remember all of those sleuths (Columbo being my fave)! Today's crime shows like Criminal Minds, CSI and the two NCIS's are on my *must see* list!

Such talent on your letter S especially the rolled up sleeves, (he was such a handsome hunk on that show!) I like these kinds of posts for letter, very interesting searching for the S!

coats and hats are the ones that I like most. although some sleuths really doesn't wear anything extraordinary, not that I can remember any shows in particular except for the ones you've mentioned. I'll always know columbo by it's coat. still don't get why starsky(?) wear those cardigans.

great S post. have a sweet day.

My son revealed that my grandson is going to be a secret agent for Halloween (don't tell anyone, Dad! I heard him saying in the background) but I have no idea what he thinks a secret agent dresses like!

I loved the "style" of Miami Vice. I was living in So. Fla when it was being filmed so I felt a connection.

Have to look for that one on Netflix...

I suspect it's only shown in Australia, but the costumes in Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries are wonderful. Kerry Greenwood set the stories in 1920s Melbourne, and Phyrnne Fisher is a thoroughly modern character.

And I'm positive she would wear Mitsouko!

Inspector Clousseau is hilarious!

WOW !!! Starsky and Hutch!!!
What a pair. I really never thought about their clothing when I was watching it...way back then. Their sweaters were kind of nice. but... I'm not to old to be still warm for their form...LOL.
I was looking at the post below, so I will tell you now .how much I enjoyed it. I was always interested in the Roman Empire. How they left their mark upon the world. You really had some very nice photos.
You stay sweet,
Marie Antoinette

Wow- that was a walk back into the tv land of my past!

good one

edenhills said...

Great trip down memory lane. I used to watch a lot of these detectives with my dad. Our favorite was Rockford.

RNSANE said...

As a forensic nurse for 21 years, I always enjoy the sleuth shows and ones like "Dexter", etc. Most of my reading material is also along those lines.

Loved seeing all the old shows and the trademark clothing.

My yellow is a beautiful sari - but you can only see part of it, with lots of bangles...including one orange one

Expectacular Don Jonshon

Jeannie Marie said...

We never missed Columbo in it's day! Yes, I loved his style of solving crimes!

Ralph said...

Many a decade of crime fighter is well represented here: Columbo and his rumpled London Fog look like the 1940s, Starsky and Hutch with the hair and overgrown sweaters the 1970s and Don Johnson (was he Crockett or Tubbs??) in his Miami Vice unconstructed linen jack rolled up is the 1980s. All amazingly styled!

Love it. Starsky and Hutch, what great memories.

Jama said...

I grew up watching Kojak, Starsky and Hutch, Colombo , Miami Vice....

Sleuths...I haven't heard this word much any more...great post...hard to be ole Starsky and Hutch.

Jenny said...

Every sleuth has their own signature look....

What about Sherlock Holmes and his coat or his scarf?

I have never had a very good sense of style so it's tricky for me to spot anyone's signature look...

Thanks fr linking to the letter "S"!

Splendid job!

A+

Jenny said...

Oopsy... That is supposed to say Thanks for, not Thanks fr...

Silly me!

We still watch Columbo to this very day! My mom had a trench coat and whenever she wore it my dad would say "Mom, are you wearing your Columbo coat!?" My folks loved watching it years ago and a=my hubby and I still do!
