P.T. Barnum knew that costumes were a key element involved in any performance extraordinaire, as did Ellen Mirojnick, costume designer for "The Greatest Showman." When Mirojnick was creating the looks for the hit movie-musical, it was all about the details, inspired by everything from Dior to Vegas. Creating the look of P.T. Barnum was no exception. With a magnificent red color scheme, P.T. Barnum's character stands out in the best possible way. This limited edition replica is no exception. Exclusively created as a collector's item, this item is as close to the "Greatest Showman" as you can get. Starting with a crisp white shirt underneath, the outfit begins to come alive with even the slightest detail in the collar. The cravat (an old-school tie) also adds a dash of elegance with a golden pin lying atop, keeping the item secure. The vest goes on next, buttoning from top to bottom. The fit of this item is very tapered, starting on the slimmer side and expanding to accommodate the actor's broad chest and shoulders. It also maintains the red color scheme with golden threading covering the entire front of the vest. The jacket has a similar cut, with no buttons to allow for choreography and movement. After all, the show must go on! With matching threadwork in gold, the bottom portions of both sleeves go together effortlessly. The jacket does feature a darker maroon color as well as several different textures, creating an elevated look perfect for showbusiness. The replica also comes with the pants, featuring an adjustable sinch on the backside, versus a zipper on the front. They sit at the waist to create a higher line, making the actor's 6'2 height even larger than it is. When asked by Women's Wear Daily what was the actor's reaction when trying on his costume for the first time, Mirojnick had this to say: "This was an amazing moment...he came in and he started piece by piece to put the costume on. He was slow, methodical. Shirt, pants, boots and then the red coat went on. I have never seen a transformation and a bolt of electricity go through the air as strong as it did when the actor put it on." This item embodies the character and the iconic name of P.T. Barnum to the fullest. With a distinctive color scheme and layers of exquisite fabrics, this item is one of kind.
