With the news that new "Sherlock" episodes are set to start filming early next year, a lot of fans are asking the all-important question "What shall I wear when the new series premieres?" Your answer may be found in Gold Bubble's new "Sherlock" clothing line, inspired by the popular BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

The collection includes a dress designed from the 221B Baker Street door, "Deductions" leggings emblazoned with the words that float through Holmes' mind as he works through a case, and a poncho tank with a wallpaper pattern. The "Belstaff"-pattern clothes use a look borrowed from Holmes's classic Belstaff Millford coat. Prices range from $69 to $79.

What sets this collection apart from some other TV-show-homage clothing efforts is the attention to detail. Gold Bubble got its hands on a an swatch of the wallpaper used for "Sherlock" and noticed it has a repeating blue-ish stripe along it. This is the pattern used for the "Bored" dress, leggings, and poncho.

"We chose to include a faded teal stripe in our print that is less shockingly blue than what is on the actual wallpaper, while still representing the presence of the stripe for those eagle-eyed fans who really know what the wallpaper looks like," explains Gold Bubble.

Fashionistas who want to get in on the Baker Street look should get a move on since the collection is limited and may only be available for a couple months. If you're looking to get your gear in time for San Diego Comic-Con, then you'll need to make contact and place a special request.
