Venice Beach, Summer 2007

Series: Californication
Episode: “LOL” (Episode 1.05)
Air Date: September 10, 2007
Director: Bart Freundlich
Costume Designer: Peggy A. Schnitzer

Background

In the Californication universe, Hank Moody is the Keith Richards of the literary world. He’s into drugs, women, booze, and is a master of his creative craft. Thus, it’s interesting that Hank obtains one of his most rocker-inspired items from Bill, who is the Lawrence Welk to Hank’s Keith Richards. The jacket goes on to become one of the more popular items of the series, despite his only wearing it this once until pulling it back out of the closet during the fourth season.

Update! In June 2014, Showtime announced a major auction of Californication costumes and props via ScreenBid. One of the 299 items being auctioned is lot 283, the coveted brown leather jacket featured in this episode and later in the fourth season. Be sure to check out the jacket at the auction link as well as all of the other items, sure to please any Californication fan. Continue reading
