Make a list of all things quintessentially British and amidst tea drinking and red buses, Sherlock Holmes has got to be on the list somewhere.
And what is so British about the much loved detective?
Well, if you put aside the sarcastic repartee between him and Watson as well as Sir Doyle’s description of his oh so British accent, Mr Holmes is quite the English fashionista.
Living in a fashion-smart county, it is no surprise Sherlock fans are not only appreciative of his investigative skills but also his dress sense in the third series of BBC One’s adaptation.
