Dan Levy turned to designer Thom Browne for the wedding tuxedo his character wore in the Schitt’s Creek series finale.
The hit Canadian comedy, which was created by Dan and his father Eugene Levy, came to an end on Tuesday after six seasons, and the last-ever episode focused on the nuptials between his character David and his fiance Patrick.
The 36-year-old actor and writer approached Browne to see if any of his designs worked for the wedding day look, and the American fashion designer was more than happy to be a part of the show’s finale.
“I am always a fan of anyone who is true to his or herself… this is true fashion… this is true style,” Browne told WWD. “I like to showcase these people in any way possible. We need more people like this in the world… bravo to Dan, bravo for his bravery and leadership.”
Browne also revealed that while the suit wasn’t custom-made, he personally hosted Dan at his store in New York City for a fitting.
The Schitt’s Creek star, writer, director and co-creator took to Instagram to share a picture from his character’s onscreen nuptials, showing him wearing the Thom Browne tuxedo with a black pleated skirt and a pair of black boots and black socks.
Also in the snap is Catherine O’Hara, who plays David’s mother Moira, rocking a papal-inspired gown and mitre with a long flowing blonde wig.
And Browne is no stranger to creating outfits for high-profile weddings, as he dressed American soccer players Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger for their big day back in December.
