[Sherlock] is known for its huge slash fandom. The duo have captured the hearts of millions of fans, and accordingly, Sherlock/Watson slash proliferates in fannish corners of the Internet. A recent fan art trend involves putting Watson in bright red briefs. The image is so popular it’s become a weekly festival of fan art, fic, and even cosplay known as Red Pants Monday.
Reapersun, a well-known Sherlock fandom artist, created the first instance of Watson in red pants. The image was immediately popular, but it took a while for it to turn into a fandom-wide trend…

A lot of you have suggested in the past that we contain a screenshot with our posts which shows the location of the prop/item of clothing we’re posting. We originally didn’t do this as we wanted the blog to have the appearance of a catalogue and quite liked the minimalist aesthetic. We have started adding screenshot links to the descriptions of posts but for Sherlock Series Three would you like us to include the image in the photoset?
For example, instead of this:
You’d have this:

Oh wow, thank you for your lovely message!
'Paying attention to
and obsessing over the tiny little details’ should probably be this blog’s tagline to be honest! But you’re so right, the production team have created something incredible with Sherlock. I don’t think there’s once been a time when something has appeared out of place or ‘not right’ on the show and with their track record Series Three is guaranteed to be just as perfect. <3
Thank you, and that’s GREAT to hear!
Thank you so much for you utterly lovely message!
For 48 hours Wear Sherlock will be gratefully accepting PayPal donations to help us with future giveaway costs and to contribute towards travel to the Sherlockian events/conventions we will be attending/hosting in the coming year.
This is something we’ve never asked before but seeing as it’s our 2nd birthday (and we have a big giveaway in the works) we hope you’ll be able to spare 50p/50c (or anything really) so we can continue to keep the blog going strong during Sherlock Series Three. If you can’t donate but want to help, reblogging this post will be extremely helpful.
The donation link is now closed. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, it’s been a tremendous help!

What a brilliant idea!
We’ll get onto that right away. In fact, making a fandom wear series sounds really fun. Does anyone have any suggestions for other things we could include?
*blows party horn*
So it’s been two years since Wear Sherlock made its first post and to celebrate we’ve created a time line of everything (big) that has happened on this blog or that we’ve been involved in over the last 24 months.
The article talks in depth about the events we’ve attended, costume contests we’ve hosted, prizes we’ve given out and so much more. It’s been an exciting two years and we’ve met and made friends with so many amazing people along the way so THANK YOU to everyone who helps us, even if it’s just by being a follower - we love you all.
