The series finale of HBO’s “Succession” hit viewers hard as Tom Wambsgans becomes CEO of the Waystar Royco empire, much to the shock (and delight) of some fans.
But one surprising sight was the outfit worn by troubled middle brother Romain Roy (played by actor Kieran Culkin), who donned a simple shirt with tricolor stripes on the sleeves in one of the show’s pivotal final scenes. Eagle-eyed fans quickly identified the top—as a Walmart baby shirt that costs just $7.
The top was spotted by the Instagram account @SuccessionFashion as it started to go viral.
The find caused quite a stir on the Internet, as it was starkly different from the character’s usual attire of jumpsuits and button-downs.
I feel like I can’t remember the last time we saw Roman in just a T-shirt.

I think the most shocking part of tonight’s episode was Roman wearing the jersey

I’m honestly surprised that Roman even owns the jersey and the shorts #Succession

The shirt itself comes in a two-pack for $13.96 at the retailer’s website by the Wonder Nation brand that makes clothing for toddlers and young kids.
One user commented, “This shirt made him look like a kid and I know that was the intention.”
In the scene, Roman is hiding in his mother’s house. Culkin is 40 years old.
The shirt is no longer listed on Walmart’s website and is reportedly sold out, according to a screenshot obtained by CBS News.
