Sam's S9 Dark Blue Plaid

Sam's S9 Dark Blue Plaid



Oh my god, Sam. CUT IT OUT WITH THE BLUE PLAIDS. Pick one or two blue plaid shirts and stick with those – the vastness of your wardrobe has begun to hurt my soul. OKAY. So, this blue plaid is a very sedated blue and grey/green plaid. It does up with buttons and the plaid runs diagonal across the pockets and shoulders. It’s actually quite nice.

Appearances:

In Rock and a Hard Place (9x08), Sam is wearing this shirt when the episode opens and he has fallen asleep next to his breakfast cereal.

You have something against blue plaid?? ;)

Sometimes we see so little of these shirts its hard to tell the difference in many of them.

And that's exactly what I have against them. Don't get me wrong, I love blue plaids, I think some of Sam's blue plaids are really nice... he just has SO MANY OF THEM and they are SO HARD TO TELL APART. It makes my job very very difficult.

I see - these shirts are very similar, aren't they. It is hard to tell some of them apart. You can go buggy eyed trying to figure it out, huh?!

Exactly. Not to mention I have to name them all. :P

Oh god, now I'm getting sucked into Blue Plaid Hell. It's kinda bugging me that Sam has so many one-time shirts in season 9 that never show up again, so I gotta ask: Are you sure that this shirt is not the same as "Sam's S7 Darker Blue Plaid"? From what I can make out, they look extremely similar.

It's possible I could be misreading it - but if you look at the S7 Darker Blue Plaid, there's a distinct light-dark-light stripe to the right-hand side of the opening. I just don't see that pattern repeated anywhere on this shirt.

Yes, there's a SLIGHT light-dark-light stripe in this shirt too - but it's a light-dark-lighter stripe (as in, the second light stripe is both a different tone than the first light stripe, and a different width... whereas on the S7 shirt, the two light bands appear to be the same tone and width.)

Again though, I could be wrong! A LOT of these blue plaid shirts are obscured by clothing/lighting. But unless I can match a pattern exactly (or exact enough that it appears to just be a second copy of the same shirt with the pattern falling a little differently across the chest or something) then I count it as a second shirt. (I mean, really, I should count the distinct copies as second shirts too, but I know wardrobe means them to be considered the same shirt.)

Oh yeah, I see what you mean with the stripes. It's probably just a very similar shirt then. (And Sam does have a whole bunker now instead of just a car to stow away all his shirts, so I guess he can afford to get a few more and only wear them very accasionally..) I see your years of practice at identifying blue plaid shirts really have paid off - I totally thought it was the same stripe ;)
