Special Sub-Topic: The Clothing of "Seinfeld"
|In "The Red Dot", what kind of sweater did George buy for Elaine?|
cashmere. Elaine had gotten George a job at Pendant Publishing. To make up for her thoughtful deed, George bought her a cashmere sweater. Even though there was a red dot on the sweater, George bought it anyway because of the discount on it. Elaine didn't notice the red dot but Kramer did.
Kramer: "What's that red dot on your sweater?"
|In "The Jacket", Jerry bought a brilliant soft suede jacket. Despite its perfection, it had one flaw. What was that flaw? |
pink lining and candy stripes on the inside. Jerry ended up buying a very expensive jacket for himself and he adored it. He wore it to a get-together with George, Elaine, and her father, Alton Benes. Unfortunately, it was snowing outside. Jerry didn't want to ruin the suede so he turned it inside out. Because of the inside lining (making him look unusual) Alton didn't want Jerry walking down the street wearing that with them. He ended up ruining it so he gave it to Kramer.
|In "The Bubble Boy", what did the Bubble Boy wear to protect himself?|
there was only a plastic divider in his room. We don't actually see the Bubble Boy. In one scene, his father (Mel) told Jerry and Elaine that he wasn't really in a bubble but more of a plastic divider that splits his room in half.
Mel: "Yeah, he's in the bubble with the tv remote."
Jerry: "So you have no control over the remote?"
Mel: "Yes, it's frustrating."
|In one episode, Gail (Kramer's girlfriend) commented Elaine on her "Botticelli's". What article of clothing was Gail referring to?|
Elaine's shoes. In "The Shoes", Gail (a cook at "Pfeiffer's") commented on Elaine's Botticelli shoes and Elaine found it irritating. In the end, Elaine had to forfeit her shoes to Gail because Jerry and George wanted a seat with Russel Dalrymple (president of NBC) at Gail's restaurant.
|The puffy shirt Jerry wore on "The Today Show" made everyone say he looked like a ______.|
pirate. In "The Puffy Shirt", Jerry had agreed to do "The Today Show" wearing a puffy shirt because he couldn't hear Kramer's "low-talking" girlfriend. Jerry was supposed to advertise the puffy shirt so her sales would go up. Jerry was constantly heckled because of this dilemma.
Jerry: " 'Avast ye, matey'? What the heck is that suppose to mean?!"
|In "The Glasses", George ended up losing his glasses at a health spa. What did we see him wearing, instead, when he walked into Jerry's apartment?|
goggles. George walked into Jerry's apartment wearing prescription goggles. Unfortunately, he didn't have an extra pair of his glasses.
Elaine: "You don't have an old pair?"
George: "I broke 'em playing basketball."
Jerry: "He was running from a bee."
|In "The Dinner Party", what kind of coat did George wear to keep warm?|
a Gortex. George wore a Gortex to keep himself warm during the cold nights. Because of the coat's huge size, George was bound to get himself into trouble. He ended up bumping into a rack of wine bottles, breaking them all, and having to give his coat to the manager to pay for them.
|In "The Raincoats", what kind of trench coats did Morty Seinfeld used to sell?|
beltless trench coats. Morty used to sell beltless trench coats which he named "The Executive". Kramer had told him they were a hot item at Rudy's Clothing Store. Morty decided to ship his boxes full of "Executives" from Florida to Manhattan. Like all "Seinfeld" endings, he never succeeded. Morty ended up with a bunch of useless trench coats.
|Which article of clothing did Kramer decide to wear in "The Scofflaw"?|
an eyepatch. Kramer thought that wearing an eyepatch might make him look more attractive. It ended up itching his eyes and he had to keep switching the eye patch from one eye to the other.
Jerry: "You look like a pirate."
Kramer: "I wanna be a pirate!"
|In "The Doll", what technique did the Maestro use to keep a perfect crease in his pants?|
he didn't wear them before his performances. The Maestro had learned it from Leonard Bernstein, saying that he kept a perfect crease by not wearing them before his performances.
Soon after, all the guys started to use this technique including Jerry and Kramer.
