    The costume was basically the TV version of the New 52 Jay Garrick costume.

    It clearly is a muscle suit,  granted Shipp is in fairly good shape for his age, but it is still a muscle suit.

I can only assume the Teddy Sears suit would not fit him, which is a shame, as Shipp would have worn that tunic just as well as he did. Recasting Jay/Flash as an older man is a daring decision that I commend the production team on and the charismatic Shipp is a fine choice to place in the role as he embodies the best traits that Jay showed in the books. Assuming he reappears as a semi-regular his relationship with Barry will be an interesting one that mirrors the comicbooks version back in the day, with Jay being Barry's inspirational figure and no doubt a surrogate father too.
Where the series goes now is anyones guess.
