Hofherr also works closely with Jonny Lee Miller to develop Sherlock’s style aesthetic. “He’s the one who actually came up with the idea of buttoning the shirts all the way up to the top. Even though sometimes he looks disheveled, his clothes fit him the right way. He has style, he’s just not obsessed with fashion,” she says of the character’s sartorial choices. His one designer indulgence? “A Tom Ford coat, which would be far too expensive for the character to own. I just said, “Who knows, maybe it was a gift from his rich dad!'”

Elementary airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on CBS. For more on the costumes of Elementary, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on newsstands Feb. 8.
