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.


Hugo Boss Overcoat

Hugo Boss Overcoat

 This vintage Hugo Boss Overcoat is one of my favorite Raylan looks.  When Timothy Olyphantputs 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.

Lucchese Handcrafted 1883 Ostrich Leg Western Cowboy Boots – Round Toe

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.

Raylan shirts are John Varvatos Converse or Calvin Klein’s with small collars. He also wears Henley shirts.  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 Raylan Givens Horseshoe Ringand a U.S. Marshal Badge I didn’t find any exact replica of the badge but you can check out some options that will still work with your costume. Click on the link below to see some choices.

    • We have added a few shirt choices for you. I don’t really know about the belt I believe a brown leather belt would work fine. As for making it a gals, I would stick to the same choices. Thanks for visiting.
