It's not me, it's you

I have an unhealthy relationship with fictional characters.

What were the two of you doing?

I don’t know if somebody has already brought this up, but did anybody else notice that Stiles wears the exact same shirt in both 3x13 and 3x14, despite a three-day time progression taking place within these episodes?

I know Teen Wolf isn’t great with keeping continuity, but the wardrobe department does a pretty good job at not having the characters repeat outfits. Just off the top of my head, I can’t recall any repeating outfits from past seasons with the exception of Derek’s leather jacket and the lacrosse uniforms. That’s why this caught my attention. 

I mean, this shirt isn’t exactly special. It’s a plain white t-shirt with blue rims around the sleeves and collar. Why have Stiles wear it twice?

DAY ONE (3x13): Stiles wears the plain white t-shirt when he helps Scott into an empty classroom to avoid having fellow school mates see Scott wolf out. Note that he also wears tan pants.

DAY TWO (3x13): Stiles wears his “Cougar’s Den” graphic t-shirt and a red plaid flannel. This is when Stiles hallucinations the whole class doing sign language. 

image

DAY THREE (3x13): Stiles wears his “let’s settle this like adults” graphic t-shirt when he sneaks into Mr. Tate’s house.

image

DAY FOUR (3x14): Stiles wears the same plain white t-shirt that he wore in 3x13. This is when Stiles has a panic attack during class and Scott helps calm him down.

I don’t know if this is of any significance, but it is weird. Out of all the seasons, I don’t think there have been any outfit repetitions. So why is this happening now?

Another thing that struck me as strange was the scene where Lydia steps in the bear trap and Stiles helps her get out of it. If you notice, Stiles is wearing another shirt very similar to the plain white t-shirt, despite minor differences.

DAY FIVE (3x14)

They’re not the same shirt, but the shirt he wears during this scene is grayish-white with a blue collar rim. I can’t help but think that this means something.

Maybe it means that Stiles is dreaming and that some of things we’re seeing are actually hallucinations/dreams. After all, when you’re dreaming, you probably don’t willingly choose what you wear in your dream. This could be why Stiles is wearing the same shirt and similar pieces of clothing. 

Note that the hoodie Stiles wears on day five was also the same hoodie he wore to Jungle in season two. 

What do you guys think?

UPDATE:

So, I watched episode 3x15, and I noticed something very strange. If you haven’t already, read my meta above.

Anyways, episode 3x15 has proved that this whole shirt mystery is intentional. It’s not just Stiles wearing his favorite shirt. It’s not a mishap with the wardrobe department. IT’S INTENTIONAL. Why? Because we see Stiles wearing the plain white t-shirt again during this episode.

Don’t believe me? Here’s proof.

The shirt Stiles wears for the majority of 3x15 is this one: This shirt is light grey, with a pocket that has palm trees on it.

In one scene, Stiles and Lydia head off into the school and into a storage room with a bunch of chemicals. He enters the storage room wearing this shirt:

After Stiles notices blood on the ground, he exits with storage room with Lydia and guess what happens….HE’S SPONTANEOUSLY WEARING THE SAME SHIRT I POINTED OUT IN THE ORIGINAL POST.

It’s the same white t-shirt with blue rims around the sleeves and collars:

Only a few seconds pass, and we see Stiles back into his grey t-shirt with the palm tree pocket:

So, what does this mean? It obviously means something because it’s purposeful. These are no coincidences. Could it be that Stiles is dreaming everything? Could it be that the real Stiles is locked away while something else is controlling his body?

What do you guys think?
