Something is afoot, and you don't have to be as cunning as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to spot it. Holmesian looks have been popping up on runways, The Sartorialist, and Face Hunter. Sherlockly elements seen about include tweeds, vests, capes, hats, pocketwatches—everything short of magnifying glasses. Certainly, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law have been looking the part for Guy Ritchie's upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie. But nothing beats tracking down one of these sleuthy looks on the streets. Elementary, our dear readers!
