All of these pieces of clothing were worn on set by the wonderful Gale Harold during his appearances as Brian Kinney. Where possible I’ve included screencaps of them being worn and which episodes they were included in. Most of Brian’s wardrobe during earlier seasons of the show was very muted and dull coloured, so forgive the awful photographs and screencaps, especially from Babylon scenes.
Brian’s Pride Shirt
This black shirt with white stitching was worn by Gale during Episode 4 Season 2. It was worn through several scenes, such as ‘pool boy’, an adorable play fight scene with Lindsay (Thea), and later when he staggers home drunk and comforts Justin after he has seen Chris Hobbs doing his service sentence at the AIDS hospice.
Brian’s White Tank
Okay, Gale wears so many of these over the course of the 5 seasons there really is no telling which one it is. I have made a few guesses at which one it might be – it has body make up stains on it, it is unwashed, and I’m guessing it has been worn a few times over the course of filming.
Brian’s Black Tank
A black Merona tank top worn by Gale in Season 2 Episode 15. Unwashed, and auctioned after the series end, this is one of the rarer pieces that wasn’t obtained from the set sale. Worn during the scene where Ben talks to Brian in Babylon as they have both been abandoned by Justin in Michael in favour of their creation of RAGE.
These were worn a few times during Season 4, quite often during Brian’s cancer and recovery arc. The waist measurement is 34. These are worn most notably in the scene where Michael gives Brian a bollocking about shutting Justin out of his life during his chemotherapy.
Brian’s Black Jumper
This faded black coloured longsleeve was worn by Gale in several different episodes, mostly throughout Season One (Notably in Episode 5). I always think of this as Gale’s “smoking pussy” jumper. [If you've seen the S1 blooper reel you know exactly what I'm talking about!]
Brian’s Black Longsleeve V Neck
Here is another item worn in several scenes and episodes – Brian’s black v-neck. Was worn in several episodes during S1, and also during 508, when Brian is in pursuit of the 10th trick on his list during his bet, and when there is some -ahem- “turbulence” in the aeroplane toilet.
Brian’s Stripy Shirt
This one was worn by Gale during Season 3 Episode 3 at ‘Carnivale’.
Brian’s Brown Athletics Underwear
Worn by Gale in Season 5, these are a pair of white underwear stitched with the Brown Athletics logo.
Brian’s Black Pants
These were worn several times during Babylon scenes filming, and Gale also wore them during a magazine photoshoot too. Waist measurement is 32. These are too dark to screencap.
Brian’s Black Babylon Shirt
A black shirt worn in Babylon. I did trawl through to find it, screencapped it, and totally then forgot the episode and season number. Doh…
Brian’s Black Shirt
Another black shirt worn during various Babylon scenes.
