For a long time now, fans have been commenting on the various styles from the boys of Big Bang Theory. Sheldon wears a few tee shirts, Leonard wears hoodies, Howard wears belt buckles, and Raj Koothrappali wears sweaters.
Despite their many quirks, Howard, Leonard, and Sheldon have all found love on the iconic series. For Raj Koothrappali, however, there’s no love in site and it’s time he changed up this wardrobe.
“Hey, I need some fashion advice…” said Raj Koothrappali.
Raj Koothrappali Not-So-Secret Problem
When Raj reveals his two choices, Penny is speechless, but not in a good way. Raj holds up two of his regular suit jackets, both with ugly sweaters and bright shirts that aren’t being worn ironic.
“So, you have other clothes at home?” asked Penny. Here, we learn the truth about Raj and his lack of confidence. Despite his help from the girls, Raj still doesn’t get the job and he believes it’s actually because of Howard.
Raj’s clothes reflect his lack of confidence.
Building Confidence For Work And Play
Throughout the rest of the episode, Raj is down on himself for not getting the job. His dad puts the seed of an idea in his head that soon works it’s way into his bloodstream and makes him flip out on Howard.
Because of Howard’s constant “jokes” and insults, Raj Koothrappali is not confident at all. When he ditches Howard, stops straightening his hair, and starts listening to Penny’s wardrobe advice, he lands the job and meets a girl on his first day.
In the final scene, he’s wearing a formal suit and tie, rather than an all-black suit that looks more like a mortician. After his demonstration, a beautiful young woman asked him for coffee to discuss the presentation.
In the next episode, it looks like Raj and Howard are still fighting, but we’re hoping that both characters grow from this situation. We want to see the duo work it out, but we also want to see Raj start to thrive on the show.
Do you think Raj will find the girl of his dreams at this new job?
