Sam's Weird Red Flower Shirt

The Damned and the Saved
Sam's Weird Red Flower Shirt




A controversial shirt - some people hate it, some people don’t care either way, and some people are just confused. This is a white dress shirt that appears to have a faint flowery pattern to it. We discover, however, when Sam rolls up his sleeve, that the reason the pattern is faint is because it’s on the INSIDE of the shirt. The other interesting feature of this shirt is that it only opens and has buttons from collar to sternum.

Brand Information: Guess.

APPEARANCES:

This odd shirt first appears in Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things (2x04). Sam wears it when he and Dean are discussing possible ways to kill zombies before they head out to track down Angela Mason. He keeps it on through the ensuing action sequences and while reburying the corpse.

In Croatoan (2x09), Sam wears it for the final scene when Dean starts to tell him about what their Dad said before he died. Since this scene overlaps with Hunted (2x10), Sam is also wearing this shirt in that episode. He keeps it on until after visiting the Roadhouse.

This is possibly the shirt that Sam wears in Roadkill (2x16), during the flashbacks of him telling Dean about the highway and them doing research.

In Hollywood Babylon (2x18), Sam wears it from the beginning of the episode until the Exec is hung from the rafters.

In What Is And What Should Never Be (2x20), Sam is wearing it during the final scene when he and Dean talk in the motel room.

In Bedtime Stories (3x05), Sam is wearing it at the beginning of the episode while he and Dean are arguing in the car.

In A Very Supernatural Christmas (3x08), Sam wears it at the end of the episode when he and Dean celebrate Christmas.

In Ghostfacers (3x13), Sam wears it at the end of the episode when he and Dean watch the video the Ghostfacers made.

In Lazarus Rising (4x01), Sam puts on this shirt directly after he is reunited with Dean and before Ruby ("Kristy") leaves the motel room. He wears it for the rest of the episode.

In Metamorphosis (4x04), Sam is wearing it when Dean comes back to the motel room after having discovered Sam’s secret exorcisms. He keeps it on for the trip to Carthage, Missouri, but changes out of it before they track down Jack Montgomery.

In Sex and Violence (4x14), Sam wears it at the end of the episode when they say goodbye to Bobby.

In Free To Be You And Me (5x03), Sam wears it when the other three Hunters show up at the bar and try to persuade him to help them fight the demons.

In Changing Channels (5x08), Sam wears it during the opening theme song when he and Dean toast their beers and smile at the camera.

In Death’s Door (7x10), Sam is wearing this shirt in Bobby’s memory of a movie-night with the boys.

FATE: Unknown

I can't believe Sam wears this shirt so often. I agree it is weird.

Jared also has a tendency to wear Sam's wardrobe off set too...so yeah, who knows how often this shirt has been worn really! :P

It's very strange. I haven't seen it in S6 so far, and I don't expect to...it just doesn't really match up well with Sam's personality (or lack thereof) at the moment.

This is my favorite Sam shirt!! My best friend hates it. :)

I like it because it's not plaid! :P

It's a fun shirt, but yeah, some people out there really hate it. I'm glad you like it, otherwise I'd feel bad for the shirt. ;)

This is the shirt I call the "demon shirt" because of the fact Sam wore it while learning of his destiny in Hunted and also when he used his powers and when Dean confronted him about the powers.

So, yeh, I like it! :)

Haha, nice! That's a good theme catch - you could even carry it further...I mean, it is a white shirt that has a red(evil)pattern on the INSIDE...

Pure on the outside, but evil within! That's what I secretly hope is behind the wall.

This is my fave shirt of Sam's hands down. Infact it's my fave shirt of the show. So much so that I actually own a copy of the SPN trading card which has a sample of it inserted in it.

I quite like it. irish shirts are made like that - with the placket thing you see on a Henley instead of buttons all the way down. Maybe Dean should get one too. :-)

I don't really think it's Dean's style, but hey, he does like Henleys ;)

I hate this shirt, and I hate his brown jacket, and I refer to both of them as his douchebag clothes.

The brown corduroy jacket?!?! I love that one.

This shirt I don't care either way about. I hate some of his plaid shirts. The orange ones especially.

Not the corduroy one, the lighter hooded one. I think he's wearing it in the flashback scene to Sam getting drunk and going to the crossroads.

Oh man, the brown hoodie-jacket?! I love that one too :P - also, it's arguably Sam's signature look, seeing as how even though he hardly wears them anymore, people are constantly putting him in hoodies in fanfics and fanart.

I like the corduroy jacket better though, it's true - that one is my favourite. My favourite shirt of his is the red one with the black design that he starts wearing in S4.

I feel like I may be the only one who is in love with that shirt.

Don't fret! There are a few others! I'm indifferent towards it, but I have had some other people tell me how much they like it (and some people tell me how much they hate it.) It's a controversial shirt!! ;)

I'm another one!

hells_half_acre, missyjack pointed me here after I said how much I liked Sam's white patterned shirt. I loved seeing it again in the most recent episode. Until I saw your list, I had no idea how often it had been used! (It seems like much too long a lifespan for a white shirt in Sam's line of work.)

Great post!

Yay! Haha, glad you like my post and Sam's shirt.

It's an odd one...and yes, it has had a remarkable lifespan for a white shirt. ;)

I was looking for an icon of this shirt because I love this shirt!

Thanks for all your hard work putting all of this together! I can really spent hours looking at everything!

I adore this shirt! It's way up there with the whippet tee and the hero and grey hoodies for me, in terms of nostalgia and fondness. If I could find a copy of it, I'd buy it in a heartbeat and wear it often.

Dec. 5th, 2011 05:08 pm (UTC)
Nice! You know, up until I did these posts, I only ever heard about how much people DIDN'T like this shirt - just goes to show how much more vocal the disliking crowd is. :P

It's fitting 'A Very Supernatural Christmas' was just on TNT about 10 minutes ago. I think this shirt looks best with the red v-neck tee underneath. :)

I was SO glad to see it again on 7x10. I thought I'd never see him wear it again, and it made me smile in the midst of the heartbreaking ep.

Yes, I like it best with the red v-neck underneath too. Sam colour-coordinates!

I really love this shirt! It's just remarkable and a nice change from all the plaid shirts. And I'm happy that it survived into the recent season. :)
You do such great work!

Thanks! I should motivate myself to get the rest of S6 clothes up!

the boys clothing
I have a theory about this shirt. Sam has lost most of his stuff twice by this point (the apartment fire in episode 1 and the car wreck at the end of season one), so Sam has had to replace a wardrobe on a very limited budget (he's still not too keen on the credit card fraud at this point) which means a lot of thrift store shopping. Now, Sam is a relatively had size to fit so it goes to figure that he will buy whatever fits, no matter how ugly it may be. And as many things go, it's just too ugly to die.

Re: the boys clothing
LOL oh man, I like your theory! It makes perfect sense. Probably all of Sam's money goes into getting suits that fit, so that he can play a convincing FBI agent.

This would also explain the orange plaid.

I kinda miss it ...
I love it, personally - but I have often wondered why Dean never teased him about it ...

Re: I kinda miss it ...
Yeah, they oddly never really comment on their clothes - unless they are wearing a costume, then it's open season for teasing.

It's also the shirt that Jared ripped his pants in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcpkJPL794w You want 2:20.

I was kinda amazed it still fit him in Lazarus Rising because he's close to the Hulk there compared to these photos lol

Man, I love this shirt. It's EVERYWHERE. I can't believe such a weird shirt has such staying power. Amazing. I've been rewatching all seven seasons, and every time I see it, I'm like OMG THAT SHIRT AGAIN. HOW. HOW. HOW. And it's there in season 7, too! It's like some sort of miracle shirt.

He's filled out so much since season 2--I have no idea how it even still fits him in the later seasons.

So fun. Thanks for doing this :)

Haha, yeah, it's a weird weird shirt. I don't know how Sam manages to keep it safe all these years. Mind you, I haven't done S7 yet, but I'm pretty sure it only shows up in a flashback then...so maybe something happened to it last year finally. :P

I am the proud owner of a pieceworks card--from back when there were Supernatural trading cards produced--from "A Very Supernatural Christmas" with a piece of the shirt. I'm on the "love that shirt" team, but only a big guy like Sam could get away with it!
hells_half_acre
Sep. 28th, 2012 04:17 pm (UTC)
Cool!

I guess it's a little like Jayne's hat from Firefly that way. I mean, you can't argue with a guy like Sam, wearing a shirt like that. ;)

Just thought I'd leave a little trivia here. I was watching Heroes not too long ago when I noticed that the character Mohinder Suresh was wearing the exact same shirt as this one. I had to pause the show and laugh for about a half an hour. This is by far my favorite Sam shirt and I swear, if I see one or find one somewhere I'm gonna get it.

And thanks to you, I now own a 'superhero hoodie jacket'. Found one online the right color and everything. Had to get it. Thanks you!!

Oh man! That's awesome. :) If you ever do find a copy of this shirt somewhere, let me know. I'd love to get one myself. I just love this shirt for how people react to it.

Yay for Superhero Hoodie Jackets! I tried to get one once, but it was far too big and I realized that I couldn't justify the cost. :( Maybe someday I'll try again.

Is it bad that I want to buy this shirt for my husband? Who's 6'1" with shoulders like Sam's?

I see absolutely nothing wrong with that and if you successfully do so, I would like to see pictures. ;)
