Downton Abbey Bottlegate 2014 Inspires Strict New Codes

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Turns out that bottle in Downton Abbey promo pics has led to a revamp of what actors are and are not allowed to bring on set. As one anonymous cast member told The Telegraph:

Modern watches and jewelry are out and so even is modern underwear as the danger is apparently too great it could be seen if we bend over. They have relented in the case of prescription glasses and asthma guns, but that's about it.

So in sum, you can take our undies, but you can't take our asthma guns!
