"Hank is dark: his mood, his outlook, his clothing. The lightest thing about him is his denim, and even that's dark. He prefers Earnest Sewn's Fulton jeans in medium weight and wash. And just like Hank, they're slightly distressed.
On those occasions that Hank has to be seen in public, costume designer Peggy A. Schnitzer pulls out all the stops for the cliched writer by putting him in a dark green corduroy blazer with leather elbow patches and dual back flaps. On his feet are minimalistic Torrance slip-on leather boot from Timberland in a tan-oiled suede. For a more casual look, Hank wears Converse All-Stars in, what else, black."
