Fans of ‘Criminal Minds’ weigh in on who they ‘think has the best style in the BAU’

On July 20, 2021, a fan on Reddit posted a title, “Who do you think has the best style in the BAU?” Fans didn’t hold back with their thoughts on the matter. 

BAU agent Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) is mentioned the most in the Reddit post. He’s definitely perfected the sweater and suit look, that’s for sure. “Reid’s 1000000%,” a fan weighed in.

Another fan said, “Reid without a doubt.”

“Season 6 Reid with all the purple and the vests. Nice,” another fan said.

Some fans mentioned Penelope Garcia

Another character mentioned quite frequently is Technical Analyst Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness). She has created her own quirky look that accurately depicts her personality through accessories and her overall outfit as well.

“Garcia’s is top tier,” a fan said.

Another fan adds, “Garcia is goals.”

While a fan mentions Garcia’s impressive collection of glasses. “I feel the need to give a shoutout here to Garcia’s glasses collection… she has so many different pairs,” the fan said. “Does she just get a bunch of frames for different outfits or has her prescription not changed in so long that they’re all just her old glasses?? I love them though.”

1 fan says ‘Rossi for sure’

SSA David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) is also named a few times as well. He definitely wears a suit well. One fan thinks the show did a good job “in dressing him wealthy.”

“Rossi,” a fan named. “IMO, they did a great job in dressing him wealthy. His wardrobe is simple, but it’s well-tailored and makes sense for his character. I’m a sucker for a basic, well-fitted outfit!”

Another fan simply says, “Rossi for sure.”

‘Hotch in his dark suits’

Some fans named the boss and unit chief, Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson), sometimes called Hotch. Always in a suit, he wore it well throughout the series.

One fan adds, “Hotch in his dark suits.”

Another fan mentioned Hotch as well. “Hotch, I’m a suit guy,” they said.       

1 fan said Derek Morgan ‘can wear the hell out of a t-shirt’

SSA Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore) was also named as well. He was seen in a regular shirt at times, and he wore the look well.

“Morgan hands down,” a fan revealed.

Another fan added, “That man can wear the hell out of a t-shirt,” and we’d have to agree.

Emily Prentiss and JJ were also mentioned

Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster), who worked her way up the ranks of the BAU, is of course mentioned as well. She could wear anything from a suit to a flowy top and still look good.

“Emily, except for that red tank they had her wear in Houston,” a fan said.

SSA Jennifer Jareau was also named. Just like Prentiss, she can wear a top or suit and wear it well.
