LOST Thoughts : Richard’s Time Threads

richard-t7

In 1954, Richard is wearing his dark blue , button down shirt and dark pants.
In 1956, Richard is decked out in dapper suit to witness lost-locke-t1Locke’s birth.
In 1961, Richard is in a similar apparel, dark business suit, when testing 5 year old John.
In late 70’s/early 80’s, Richard is wearing rather antiquated, even “piratey” type wardrobe
In 1992 ( approx) Richard stayed in handmade garments during The Purge
IN 2004-5, back to the dark blue, button down shirt and dress pants… but changed back to the to when Locke was to become “leader” of The Others at the end of Season 4 finale.
The the Island moves…
Post flash…Richard is back , helping Locke remove the bullet from his leg, in his dark blue button shirt again.

Why does this matter? Where/when did these styles of clothing originate? Did he get the more modern apparel in the future? In the 1950’s when the army landed on the Island? Did he go shopping during some “down time” doing one of ben-t13Ben’s “errands” ?

I know, it may seem silly and inconsequential…but maybe not. Maybe it’s just telling us that when given the opportunity, Mr. Alpert likes to be a real snappy dresser? 🙂 Or maybe it is the key to telling us how long Richard’s been there… and how old he really is?

    Interesting to see it laid out like that. 🙂

    I’ve always been intrigued by the shirt he had on when he talked to Li’l Ben, there’s filagree or embroidery on it and it looks like it has wooden or frog-type buttons.

    Yes. I think it’s fair to say that there’s probably a lot of “history” in that shirt. It should be fun to find out its true origins. 🙂
