Come Back Little Sheba Costume Design : Doc

From the Come Back Little Sheba Costume Design I have the series of designs for the character Doc.  The play is set in the 1940's Midwest.

Doc is a man who is a recovering alcoholic, who lost everything business wise but has a small chiropractic practice. He is haunted by his past since his wife Lola keeps bringing it up. He regrets so much and just wants to forget everything.
He is very routine oriented and is very businessman like and formal. I have him costumed in a suit, which since he doesn't have much money he wears everyday.


He is later so stressed he turns back to his old habits of drinking. He is no longer the well put together and clean man. 

The last scene Doc has been released from treatment at the hospital for his drinking spree. Here he is still broken and disheveled. He is now the weak and disorganized one in the marriage.
