I fell in love with Hannibal with the first episode. Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne and Mads Mikkleson provide interesting masculine foils, but also great specimens for male fashion. Mickleson, who plays Dr. Hannibal Lector, ever the paramount of classic and modern men's fashion.
Hannibal wears a wide spread collar, which accentuates the tie knot and the face, best suited for smaller frame or smaller, thinner faces. The color frames the man both above and below the collar's point. Hannibal commands attention despite his average size, because of his attire and presence, and his attention to detail, particularly in fashion, leads to his stature.
The important thing to look at is the distinct shirt collar and tie combos in the series. The suits Hannibal wears are always complete and represent a European flair for the dramatic. Will Graham, played by Dancy, wears very simple, almost plebian, attire, even when Graham does dress up, it's often a simple sweater or button up shirt.
The wide collar attracts all sorts of attention, and Hannibal more than capable at handling it. but you don't need to be an egotistical sociopath to pull off the look, just lots of confidence and an attractive tie knot, not just a half Windsor.
Hannibal pairs the wide collar with a full Windsor (sometimes loosely tied with a sloppy dimple) or a Pratt knot, sometimes referred to as a Shelby knot, which looks bad with a classic collar because the collar ends cover up the sharp tie angles that lend to the look. This knot which can be a made into a wide triangle fits perfectly with the collars Hannibal wears, often creating a straight line across the collarbone bisecting the head and the uper body. Honestly, I dislike the sloppy full Windsor, as it detracts from Hannibal's sharp focus and attention to detail.
