How To Create The Perfect Raylan Givens Costume

Not only will you be the coolest guy at the party, you will have all the ladies attention.  Come on girls, you can turn your guy into TV’s coolest lawman.  We are going to help you put your costume together.

The first thing you need for your Raylan look is a jacket.  We are going to give you two choices.  You can choose Raylan’s Levi denim jacket or his Hugo Boss Overcoat.

This is Raylan’s Levi Denim Jacket.  Raylan has worn this in several episodes of Justified.  It is a great starting point for your costume.

Raylan’s Hugo Boss Overcoat

This vintage Hugo Boss Overcoat is one of my favorite Raylan looks.  When Timothy Olyphant puts this jacket on he embodies the Western spirit of Raylan.  I looked high and low, these aren’t easy to find, but I found this one on ebay.  I think it is an almost perfect replica of Raylan’s Overcoat.

Click on the Hugo Boss Overcoat heading if you would like to see the coat on ebay.

Raylan’s distinctive Cowboy Boots are Lucchese Ostrich Leg Boots.  The boots featured above are a perfect match for Raylan’s. Now I realize a lot of you are on a budget, so if you can’t afford the real thing, just a brown pair of cowboy boots will work.

No Raylan Givens Costume is complete without the Stetson Hat. Raylan wears a custom made variation of a cattleman’s hat.

Click on the link above to check out the hat on FX Shops.

Raylan shirts are John Varbatos Converse or Calvin Klein’s with small collars. They are sports shirts not dress shirts.  He also wears skinny vintage ties. Since I have found these shirts are expensive, I would suggest just a plain Banana Republic Tee.

You can further accessorize your Raylan Givens Wardrobe with a horseshoe ring and a Marshal’s badge. I didn’t find any exact replica’s of the ring or the badge but you can check out some options that will still work with your costume. Click on the links below to see some choices.

You can be as elaborate as you care to be with your Raylan costume.  I have provided the most original choices available.  I realize most of us are on a budget when it comes to costumes, so you can choose the pieces you can afford and just wing the rest.

Anyway I envy the lucky girl going as Winona. This couple is sure to be the hottest couple at the party.  Your costume is totally Justified!
