Good god, those ties and pockets squares are something straight out of an 80's drug lord film.

The costumers did a great job on this show. Hannibal's clothing is out of the ordinary, but that makes sense for his character. He seems to love obscure and refined things. It would be kind of a mismatch for someone who cooks like Jose Andres to wear the most conservative, traditional, and nondescript wardrobe possible. I wouldn't try to emulate his style because I don't think it would work for me, but it's great eye candy within the context of the show.
Thought I'd resurrect this thread since I've been rewatching the show, but I'd like to point out that if you think Hannibal in the show "doesn't want to stand out" you're not watching the same show as we are.
These clothes are pieces of artwork, not "clothes", they aren't meant to be worn by normal people. The show is a modern gothic, it's stylized and heightened. Hannibal is a ridiculous and theatrical persona, have you fucking listened to how he talks, I swear to god if you think the way he acts is "normal" you have no idea what "normal" is. It's MEANT to be "costumey" and exaggerated. It's only vulgar if you imagine yourself or a colleague wearing it in real life. As worn and shown by the characters in the show, it's beautiful.
I too have enjoyed the show and the creators' reimagination of Hannibal as a rather dapper European.
As for the "teardrop" pattern, I believe you're referring to paisley, the pattern on a lot of his ties (people also describe it as kind of amoeba-like):
I absolutely love his suits and the pattern matching is pretty spot-on as well. The one issue I have is with the ugly way he ties his ties -- very thick knot (likely a full windsor) without a sharp dimple, so it looks a bit sloppy. A good example here:
I've seen a lot of similar ties with the tear drop design made by Ted Baker London.
