The Purple Shirt of Sex

"The Purple Shirt of Sex" refers to a lightly pinstriped, extremely well-fitted purple shirt worn by Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) in parts of the  third episode, "The Great Game." Its most exemplary moment comes when Sherlock is examining Carl Powers’s shoes in the kitchen and is bustling about for a few precious moments with his sleeves rolled, his top two buttons undone, and his his blazer off, allowing the audience to see the full slim-fit pectoral-hugging glory of the purple shirt. Though all his shirts are similarly fitted, the camera angles in this scene, the length of the scene, and the color of the shirt make it appear particularly flattering.

According to the ever-helpful sherlockology.com, which works in conjunction with the tumblr blog wearsherlock, this shirt is a Dolce & Gabbana shirt from a store called “Liberty” in London and is no longer available in any current stores.
