bad-costumes

Oh and now that the “SEXY HALLOWEEN COSTUMES ARE BAD” discourse is returning like it does every year…

Who else is patiently waiting for someone to actually go on a lingerie site and use it for examples of “Halloween costumes” being sexist?

Just like last year.

And the year before…

….and the year before that?

Saul’s Suit #15: The Way Of The World

Suit #15: “The Way Of The World”

Breaking Bad S3E5, “Mas”

“You go with the winner.”

Saul’s green shirt almost perfectly matches Jesse’s jacket, indicating that the two of them are connected—they’re on the same team. And, at the start of this scene, that’s true: Saul is now Jesse’s lawyer but not Walt’s, and is just trying to mediate. While they’re waiting, he’s even trying to appeal to what he thinks is Jesse’s “playuh” lifestyle by talking about prostitution (”Her name’s Kim Nu Suong. As delicious as it sounds.”) By putting Saul and Jesse in the same color, it serves to emphasize Saul’s betrayal when, at the end of the scene, Saul switches loyalties to Walt. His dark purple pocket square actually matches Walt’s jacket, which is probably black but looks brownish-purple in the light of Saul’s office. He may be dressed for Team Jesse, but his pocket goes with Walt. Saul’s suit jacket and trousers are also a shade darker than normal, lending a more sinister look.
