Hannibal S1, Ep12 – Relevés

Costume Designer: Christopher Hargadon

When Hannibal brings Will some chicken soup, we get a brief glimpse at his brown single breasted Burberry Overcoat. The lighting has been very dark throughout most of the interior scenes. A thick brown like this won’t make much of an announcement in this light. Still, it’s a thoughtful gift from Hannibal to bring a prepared meal. Hannibal will be acutely aware that hospital food can be quite ordinary, and whilst Will would have no cause for flowers as would be a standard gift, a square meal could be just the tonic. Perhaps if you’re visiting a friend or a loved one in hospital, a home-cooked meal as opposed to some flowers from the CO-OP, would show greater consideration.

Burberry Overcoat on Hannibal

Now we know

Thanks to the Hannibal Prop Store auction we know this is a,

 Burberry brand overcoat (size marked 52) made of a thick brown fabric with a dark brown velvet lining at the collar.

This piece closed at auction for $900. Nothing memorable beyond the standard high brow dialogue happens so it seems like a fair proce for this piece. A new Burberry Overcoat would probably cost you in the region of £1000-1500. The fabric is more than likely a wool-cashmere blend with a viscose lining. Much like a typical 3-button burberry overcoat from their latest collection. The 4 button and the contrast velvet on the collar sets this apart, even at the risk of making it look a little dated.


When Hannibal removes his overcoat he is wearing an olive green with blue windowpane suit that looks to be in keeping with a city tweed material. His jacket sleeves could be considered a little shorter in length than his other jackets. But he is not being showy with embroidered initials on his cuffs, fancy cufflinks or showy accoutrements. So this is a conscious choice by his coatmaker, rather than a mark of vanity.
