Storyline

Kramer's new girlfriend is what Jerry calls a low-talker, someone whose soft voice makes her unintelligible. She's a clothing designer and her latest idea is a puffy, pirate-like shirt. What Jerry doesn't realize is that he agreed to wear the puffy shirt on the Today Show. George has moved back in with his parents and his mother is driving him crazy about getting a job. A chance encounter leads him to become a hand model. Suddenly his hands are his main concern until he has an unfortunate encounter in Jerry's dressing room. Written by garykmcd

Season 5, Episode 2, "The Puffy Shirt"

"The Puffy Shirt" should be on anybody's list of the greatest Seinfeld episodes ever. It's one of those episodes where all the threads and all the plots come together to a truly satisfying conclusion.

The actors are all on the top of their game - especially Jason Alexander. The episode is a defining moment for George's character. But Jerry is terrific too, extremely awkward but also hilarious. The writing for the episode, above all, story and dialog both, is one of the true highlights of the show's entire run. A classic piece of television that benefits from repeated viewings.
