Sherlock Holmes would not have any interest in fashion, so the decision was taken for him to dress in classic suits with a modern twist: narrow-leg trousers and a two-button, slim-cut jacket. The suits chosen were by Spencer Hart: contemporary with a slight period feel. He uses fine cloth which looks wonderful and sits perfectly.

"I found these Spencer Hart suits which were classic, beautifully cut, the cloth was fabulous and when [Benedict] put it on he thought it was perfect. It was actually the first thing he tried on! They really did work well - the producers and director were thrilled. Benedict loved his clothes but a lot of his suits were wrecked because he insisted on doing his own stunts. Because the suit cloth was so fine, they took a bashing. We had to buy three complete suits which was very expensive, as well as a separate jacket."

- Sarah Arthur, Sherlock Costume Designer
