The Stranger Things cast reunited over the weekend for the season 4 premiere and all of Hawkins was in attendance, including Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schapp, Gaten Mazarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Sadie Sink, and Wynona Ryder. While we can’t get over how much the cast has grown up, David Harbour dazzled the red carpet in a perfectly on-theme, Stranger Things-inspired suit. In fact, it was so on-brand it deserves a closer look.

Harbour’s suit was custom made by Union Western, a suiting brand who has dressed celebrities like Post Malone in other embellished ensembles. 

Harbour told Vogue that he wanted to wear something bold to the premiere. “My wife [Lily Allen] at one point worked with Union Western,” Harbour said. “They make these mad suits for rockstars, so I figured, let’s f***ing do this!”

Harbour settled on a perfect suit that featured the characters of Stranger Things, the “upside down” world they venture in, and even features the infamous monster, the Demagorgen. 

The details in front of the suit include Mike (Wolfhard), Eleven (Bobby Brown), Dusten (Mazarazzo), and Lucas (McLaughlin) on their bikes, showcasing the first season’s promo. The back mimics season 4’s promo poster that features a spooky house, eyes, and the “Surfer Boy Pizza” van.

There is more to the suit than meets the eye. The actor’s bedazzled look also paid homage to his late mother, who attended every Stranger Things premiere before she passed in 2019. His mother was a big fan of Elvis Presley, so the actor told the outlet his look for the occasion “warranted some wild ‘Elvisy’ expression this year.”

With sustainability in mind, Harbour wants to give his fabulous suit a second life and will be putting it up for auction to donate the proceeds to War Child, an organization that protects the youth in war torn countries. 

“Hopefully some super fan’s dad will get it and one day pick up their kid from school in it and embarrass the hell out of them,” the actor said. 

The new season premieres May 27 on Netflix.
