For Simon Helberg, getting into character as Howard Wolowitz often involves squeezing into super-skinny jeans, and for that he has Big Bang Theory costume designer Mary T. Quigley to thank.

Quigley — who also offered us some insight into Sheldon’s T-shirt collection — explained the logic behind Wolowitz’s sartorial choices when she gave EW’s own Adam B. Vary a guided tour of the Big Bang wardrobe closet.

“He’s much more of a fashionista [than Sheldon and the other guys],” Quigley says. “Luckily, I have an actor who really believes in ‘in character’ and is willing to put the tight pants on, and feels comfortable doing it.”

So, what’s with Howard’s extensive collection of belt buckles? And where does Quigley dig them up?
