In the scene where Scamander is trying to capture the invisible beast in the department store, he is behind a red Santa Claus. Red Santa was not popular at the time. The movie was set 1926, Coca Cola didn't start to advertise red Santa until 1931. Although recent history has found that Santa was advertised wearing red and white between 1863 - 1886, Santa was mainly popular wearing a tan and green colour outfit. This means that the red santa would not be in that department store.
Dougal... settle down now, please.
Newt Scamander: It won't be long.
Every man in the movie wears a hat when outdoors (common dress for 1926), except for the three chief male characters - Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski, and Percival Graves, who never ever do. While Newt and Graves are wizards, whose fashion sense can differ from that of Muggles, Jacob does not have this excuse.
An occamy slithers into the film title to form the S in "Beasts".
