It's no secret how we here at the Muck feel about The Wire. It doesn't get the props it deserves in terms of viewing figures, but it certainly gets the critic's seal of approval along with it's small but enamoured fan base; it speaks volumes that salon.com can describe the show as
a "Homeric epic of modern America"and not be guilty of overstatement.
We could go on attempting to wax lyrical but I'm not here for that right now. I'm here to talk about a component of the shows appeal that rarely gets mentioned - the fashion. My inspiration for this was Bodie, the man's coolness knows no bounds, I wanted to do a little homage to his stylin' here but haven't been able to find that many pics. Any of you fashion gurus out there who can also screen grab please help and let's have an inter blog Wire fashion show.
Here's one to start, how fucking cool does Bubbles (and, of course, Bodie) look in this shot?
