Joffrey called out, “Dog!”
Sandor Clegane seemed to take form out of the night, so quickly did he appear. He had exchanged his armor for a red woolen tunic with a leather dog’s head sewn on the front. The light of the torches made his burned face shine a dull red. “Yes, Your Grace?” he said.
“Take my betrothed back to the castle, and see that no harm befalls her,” the prince told him brusquely. And without even a word of farewell, Joffrey strode off, leaving her there.
A Game of Thrones
CLOTHES AND ARMOUR IN ASOIAF AND THE TV SHOW GOT
Sometimes I have seen people make fun of Sandor’s outfit the night he escorted Sansa after the tourney, joking that it was like a Weasly sweater or comparing it to Mark Darcy’s Christmas sweaters in Bridget Jones’s Diary. And it is OK to have fun and have a couple of laughs, but beyond that, what was George’s intention when he wrote this description? I don’t think he wanted us to believe the tunic was funny-looking or that Sandor dresses badly. It is probably the opposite, because in a court where ostentation seems to be the norm he never wears showy clothes but plain colours and is quite neat and careful with his outfit and personal hygiene.
He is very self-conscious due to his disfigurement to the extent that he wears his hair long and brushes in a certain way (sideways) to try, rather unsuccessfully, to cover those gruesome burns. His white cloak is described as snowy and he wears a jewelled brooch to fasten it. Sansa notices that he often smells of wine but not of anything unpleasant apart from that, except diring the BoBW night, but how could he not smell of sweat after fighting for hours leading sorties and even boarding enemy ships? As for the smell of blood and vomit, that doesn’t prove he was careless and dirty in general terms.
I am saying this because I do not like the way the show has portrayed him as messy, scruffy, with bad teeth and horrible manners at the table. What is more, I don’t think it makes sense for a character to wear armour and the same armour, by the way,in all the scenes except one in which he is wearing the KG’s armour, and he looks gorgeous there, by the way. And what about wearing the same breeches for three seasons? This is a bit too much even for a scruffy character, which Sandor Cleagane is not in the books, to start with.
What is the point of making him look so scruffy and never changing his breeches or armour? He has a good job, being Joff’s sworn shield so he must have a good pay and be able to buy suitable clothes, or at least some chothes. It is impossible to believe that Cersei would have a scruffy and messy sworn shield not only at court but also around her son. This is not about vanity but about dressing the right way four your job and Sandor seems responsible as regards his job until the very end, when he decides he has had enough.
I have added a picture where we can see a tunic with a dog or a wolf sewn on it and I don’t think it looks bad at all. If it was red it would be very much like that of Sandor’s. Sandor was wearing Lannister red and I do not think red is a bad colour for either a swarthy or a fair-skinned guy. I is not suitable for people with ruddy faces but Sandor is never said to be ruddy and it would be unlikely if his hair is so dark.
By the way, what do you think of other characters’ attire, some are quite over the top, in my view, or at least extremely showy. What about Loras Tyrell’s saphyre armour and that cape of woven roses?

We cannot see the cape here and he looks gorgeous anyway in this picture,but his armour is really showy.
And what about Jaime wearing golden armour?
They are just examples of outfits that sound far more extravagant that that red tunic, and not only extravagant but risky, sometimes bordering on poor taste. Even the KG’s armour sounds weird. It is not white in the show, probably because it would not look good in white, to put it lightly. Have you imagined what those guys would look like in enamelled white armour? LOL.
What do you think of the outfits described in the books? Are there any that you found especially nice, or maybe the opposite, or perhaps a little too extravagant?
When he asks you out he doesn’t seem nervous at all
But on the inside he’s dying
When you say yes he get really happy and shows off that gummy smile of his
(JUST LOOK AT THIS SMILE)
Not much skinship in the beginning
In public, he would hold your hand at the most
But once you guys are alone he’s a cuddle monster
Cuddling you as you both nap
He would take care of you in a silent way
Like leaving food out for you if you worked late
Or covering you with a blanket if you fall asleep on the couch
But you would take care of him too
Whether it’s by bringing food to the studio so he eats that day
Or by making sure he doesn’t stay up all night working
When he’s away on tour he’d call you every chance he got
Sometimes you stay up all night just talking because you love hearing each other’s voices
IMAGINE YOONGI’S VOICE WHEN HE’S SLEEPY
IT WOULD BE SO DEEP
(Sleepy Yoongi is seriously so adorable. I want 10)
Lots of comfortable silences
Like just the two of you enjoying be with each other
It’s cliche but there would be TONS of studio dates
Him calling you to come to the studio because he needs his muse
He’d show you the songs he was working on and ask your opinion
He’d feel so accomplished when you tell him that they’re amazing
He’d write so many songs for you
You make him so happy that he just needs to get it out through his music
He’d be nervous to perform them in front of you because each song has his heart and soul in it
But he feels so amazing when he sees you tearing up from his powerful lyrics
He’d call himself a genius whenever he does something cheesy
“JAGI, THAT SHOULD BE LIKE 1000 BOYFRIEND POINTS”
“YOONGI YOU JUST SAID THAT YOU LIKE MY BUTT”
“YEAH AND IT WAS GENIUS”
One day you steal one of his shirts
And he would just ask you nonchalantly
“JAGIYA, ISN’T THAT MY SHIRT?”
“AH, OKAY. WILL I EVER GET IT BACK?”
But he’s okay with it because he loves seeing you wearing his oversized hoodies
His random bursts of energy that leave you laughing
HE’D BE SO EXCITED TO BRING YOU TO DAEGU
Showing you where he grew up and giving you a tour of the city
He’d practically bouncing with excitement to show you everything
A relationship with Yoongi would be filled with so much trust and dedication. He would share all of his deepest concerns and emotions. Once he says that he loves you, he’d tell you all the time. But you know he means it with his whole heart each time. Gummy smiles all the time, and him acting cute to make you smile.
