In this interesting article published by The Radio Times, Sherlock’s production designer Arwel Wyn Jones talks about some of the key items featured on the set of 221b Baker Street. Wearsherlock have been on the hunt for more information so you too can have a part of 221b in your own house! Click on the set images above to see them in higher resolution. 

The animal skull was purchased online and sprayed a glossy black before it was mounted on the wall. The headphones were a last-minute, spur-of the moment addition.

If you’re looking for a bison skull, your best bet is skullsunlimited.com which stock a wide range of skulls in all shapes and sizes. Many independent sellers on etsy and eBay also stock skulls and often at a cheaper price. 

A modern alternative to the stiletto always referenced as Holmes’s way of filing the mail, this Leatherman knife actually belonged to Arwel. But because it now has a permanent home on set, he’s had to purchase a replacement.

We’ve previously posted Sherlock’s Leatherman knife here but it’s interesting to point out that Moriarty opts for the same brand only in a more compact version, his being the Leatherman Squirt P4

The skull on the mantelpiece is, of course, a cast, which had to be chiselled out to allow Watson to hide Holmes’s packet of cigarettes inside it in The Hounds of Baskerville.

Looking for your own (slightly) creepy mantelpiece ornament? Look no further than Amazon.co.uk who stock many replica skulls (click the link for our favourite). If you’d like a real human skull, boneroom.com can help! As previously answered, the cigarettes hidden by Sherlock’s skull were completely brandless, featuring nothing but the typical UK warning label. 

For those interested in the frame of beetles and epauletted bat, which is also seen in Sherlock’s bedroom, (take a closer look at a similar frame here), etsy and eBay are once again the best places to look if you want one at a steal. To get an idea of retail pricing try naturepavillion.com. Here’s a frame of beetles from their shop at $94. 

In the artwork on the wall, parts of the skull are painted on different layers of Perspex, creating a sort of 3D effect. Even shot in 2D, the depth created and the weirdness of the effect make for an impressive addition to the set.

For lovers of 221b’s artwork, our partners in prop hunting sherlockology.com have created a downloadable PDF of the piece here. If you’d like to give it a go yourself, a plain base for the graphic is available here.  

We wanted to blur the edge between laboratory and kitchen, says Arwel, suggesting Holmes would think nothing of boiling the kettle next to an experiment on a severed hand - or heating up beans on a Bunsen burner.

Want to have your own laboratory kitchen? For all your equipment needs try, alkaliscientific, alphalabs or spectrumchemical. If you’re looking for Sherlock’s book, the exact copy is available here at Amazon where you’ll also find his black pestle and mortar in a range of sizes. We’re still currently searching for Sherlock’s microscope, so if you think you know the model please let us know!

The magpie seal was inspired by the music playing on Moriarty’s headphones (Rossini’s The Thieving Magpie) as he staged his daring break-ins. It also influenced the winged IOU graffiti on a Baker Street wall.

Have another listen to The Thieving Magpie here. For those of you who want a better look at the graffiti, here’s a close up. If you’d like to make your own magpie seal, you can create one at customwaxnseals.com

A study in Moriarty

Probably the only clothing brand that every single Sherlock fan knows is that of Moriarty’s two piece suit. After John has bravely grabbed the arch-enemy in question to give Sherlock a chance to escape Moriarty announces that his suit is Westwood as he readjusts himself. The Westwood of which he speaks is of course that of Vivienne Westwood.

Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood is known for her sometimes extreme punk and new wave styling but her range also includes some classically smart and sharply tailored designs. Moriarty’s choice is just that - a two button classic. However, often even classic Vivienne Westwood suits feature a skull and crossbone lining.

Cuffs, lapels and buttons

Westwood’s trademark buttons are a dark amber colour with the brand logo engraved into each. The logo features an orb similar to the British crown jewels with a satellite strip circling around it which gives it a punky, modern feel. The jacket is single breasted (one column of buttons) and the bottom button is undone as the general rule with two button suits. When John grabs Moriarty the logo-embellished buttons of his jacket are easily visible.

These personalised buttons also feature on the cuffs of Westwood’s jackets. Two buttons on the sleeve (as compared to the more common four) is usually the case for city suits and Westwood’s classic range. Cuff buttons often serve no other purpose than pure decoration and aren’t functional. Westwood’s buttons are the same. Moriarty’s cuff buttons are visible when he lifts his hands to make his boastful ‘Westwood’ statement (see image).

Moriarty’s lapels are a simple ‘step’ design (called notch lapels in America). They’re quite thin and the mouth of the notch is an average, medium size. Step lapels are sometimes considered to be the smartest but come in a few different styles based on where the collar meets the lapel and what shape it is. Moriarty’s is very high on his lapel as is common for modern suit styles.

The single vented, slim fit jacket features three pockets: two flap pockets and one breast pocket. The British rolled-shoulder design lifts the fabric at his shoulders slightly, giving the effect that he is actually more built than he is. The worsted fabric is a bright navy and is 100% wool. As covered in A Study in Pocket Squares Moriarty wears a simple white square in a clean edge style. Westwood’s current season of the two button classic is available on her website for £600 / $921

Alexander McQueen

As previously posted, Moriarty wears an Alexander McQueen tie featuring a mix of polka dots and trademark McQueen skulls. The tie is 100% silk and he has tied it in a half-Windsor knot. At five centimeters wide his tie is considered a ‘skinny’ tie. Moriarty’s build means skinny ties suit his frame well. The tie complements the rest of his suit as it is a similar width to his lapels. Generally, the wider your lapels, the wider your tie. McQueen’s tie is available in many different colours but Moriarty has opted for a dark navy blue, a classic colour for business. Sarah Arthur (Sherlock’s Costume designer) said about the skull tie: “It just worked - because it had a sinister feel”. McQueen’s ties are currently priced at £90 / $138

Spencer Hart

Moriarty’s shirt is by Saville Row’s Spencer Hart. Hart’s shirts are known for their interesting weaves and fabrics. Moriarty’s shirt is weaved in a Piqué style which makes it stiffer than the other shirts seen in the show and makes an aesthetically pleasing contrast against his silk tie, causing it to stand out more. Spencer Hart is also known for it’s rounded collars which are quite period in their shape and have become a more uncommon collar style in the last decade. However, they will always be a classic in men’s fashion. Spencer Hart shirts are priced around the £150 / $230 mark.

We only see Moriarty twice in The Great Game. The first time we see him he is wearing an outfit to trick Sherlock to think he is a slightly awkward gay guy from the IT department - so not his usual choice of clothing. The second time is at a planned meeting with Sherlock, so i would assume he made an effort to dress appropriately (perhaps to impress?) for the ocassion. His suit ultimately says business; it’s a city suit that he’s personalised to make completely his own. But who knows how he dresses when he’s not intending to blow up consulting detectives and ex-Army doctors - perhaps we shall find out in series 2.
