If You've Got A Blacklist, I Wanna Be On It


While he isn’t as unkempt as his print counterpart, Paul Bettany’s Maturin still bears very few signs of a 19th century gentleman’s interest in fashion. He has no time for masculine posturing, and when it comes to his appearance he’s something of an eccentric-intellectual stereotype — all shabby waistcoats and old coats. Probably as a concession to the movie’s 21st-century audience, Maturin’s periwig has been traded in for a distinctly modern (well, Victorian) hairstyle. His most unusual outfit is the one he wears while exploring the Galapagos islands: a patterned banyan robe, a straw hat, and lace-up leather spats. It’s an interesting combination: old-fashioned knee-breeches like Aubrey, coupled with the distinctly casual and unpatriotic addition of an Indian-style overcoat that has little in common with the more formal Naval fashions of the day.
