Twilight fans ecstatic that “Eclipse” Edward to look more like a teenager

By Kim Palacios Nobody complained about the now-famous gray pea coat Edward sported in “Twilight”, nor did they grumble over his fitted casual long-sleeved jerseys, light blue button-downs, or black wayfarers. “New Moon” was a different story—the birthday party and forest scenes found him in something that looked like tweed—reminding us all that Edward’s tastes may be less aligned with those of a 17-year-old teenager than with those of a vampire whose age is 109.

Part of the fan reaction to Edward’s wardrobe in “New Moon” (aside from the fact that it didn’t flatter Robert Pattinson’s physique, as the wardrobe largely had in “Twilight) was sentiment that Stephenie Meyer had not written his character to dress so “old”. Even Carlisle, who can be considered older than Edward in every sense of the word, looks more contemporary than Edward in every scene of “New Moon”.

Yet, a recent set of new photos have sparked new hope for fans of Robert Pattinson and fans of the Twilight Saga. The photos show Edward in a fitted denim jacket, a light gray v-neck t-shirt, and contemporary jeans. And it’s not just the official photos—promotional videos including both trailers seem to confirm the conclusion that the Edward in “Eclipse” will look a little bit more like a teen.

But, be warned not to expect too much. The trailers still show a few places where the wardrobe slips. In particular, a certain plaid shirt + gray textured jacket combo misses the mark. (At least it’s better than tweed.)
