The normal thing is that dressing like the brothers of the Roy clan in ‘Succession’, the HBO Max series, costs you a few thousand dollars per outfit… Unless you want to imitate the smallest of the family, Roman (Kieran Culkin ), which he wore for a large part of the final chapter a cheap T-shirt from Walmart… From the children’s section.
“Wide-eyed,” the “Succession” finale, found Roman holed up at his mother’s vacation home in Barbados after burying patriarch Logan Roy in the penultimate episode, “Church and State.” Following his collapse at the funeral, and after receiving a minor beating at the hands of anti-Mencken protesters, Roman went underground with a limited wardrobe.
The informal aspect of the shirt that he wears at his mother’s house and the pastel tones were what really caught the attention of the fans, who They identified the garment in the children’s section of the Walmart department store And they sold it out in a few hours.
The Instagram account’@successionfashion‘, which compares the costumes of the characters in the series to their retail price, noted, for example, that Caroline wore a $405 Paul Stuart blouse, Kendall wore a $640 André suit, and Shiv he was decked out in an Altuzarra combo that costs almost $3,000. Roman’s toddler t-shirt is just $7 (2x$14)so for many of us this is the only opportunity to wear a ‘Succession’ design.
But Roman Roy’s Walmart T-shirt is, perhaps unsurprisingly, out of stock on the store’s website. After all, as the product reviews say, “If it’s good enough for Roman Roy, it’s good enough for me.” The one who is not consoled is because he doesn’t want to, I suppose.
