The 8 Best Fashion Statements Cooked Up on Breaking Bad

The series finale of AMC's Breaking Bad airs Sunday night, and I'm approaching it with a mixture of anticipation, dread, and relief. For five seasons this show has been grossing us out, confronting us with concepts of good vs. evil, teaching us a lot about meth (not to mention how to dissolve a dead person with acid), and entertaining us with some very intense fashion moments.

The series finale of

Jesse Pinkman's Ed Hardy Moments:

Jesse fancies himself a gangsta in the early seasons, and gravitates towards baggy pants, beanies, and oversized Ed Hardy-esque jackets and shirts. It's a look he never quite loses, even after he gets beat up a hundred times, tries to get out of the business, and watches everyone he loves get killed.

Walter White's Heisenberg Hat:

(Sorry, it's not my favorite.)

Hazmat Chic:

Walt is very concerned about safety and cleanliness while cooking meth and cleaning up the remains of dead people. Much like his drug kingpin skills, the hazmat suits got more and more elaborate as the seasons progressed.

Walter's Pantslessness:

But before the hazmat suits go on, the pants come off. It's hard to forget those moments when Walter gets down to business--and down to his tighty whities. This occurred most memorably in the pilot episode when White permanently lost a pair of his khakis (which

Hank's Slightly Tight Shirts:

Poor Hank! Hank loves a good short-sleeved Hawaiian or guayabera shirt, but due to his heft, they're always just a little too tight on him.

Poor, poor Hank.
