The Perfect Halloween Costume For A Night At Dorsia | Gear Gent
Upon first inspection this costume may not look much like a costume at all, but that’s because, should you opt for this choice, you’ll be looking just like American Psycho’s absurdly suave protagonist, Patrick Bateman
Halloween may only come around once a year but for many it can be a daunting prospect. All the trick or treating and free sweets in the world can’t make up for the social-agony of being invited to a friend’s fancy dress party and being made to squeeze into that Superman costume, just so you’re not the only one ruining the ‘fun’. Where’s the style in all this? Well, for those with desire to look dashing, as well as a penchant for pop culture, classic men’s outfitters Brooks Brothers have shown us exactly where to find it.
The ensemble doesn’t stretch much further than a well-fitted suit, shirt and tie, smart shoes and a few quirky accessories, but the details are key. That being said, the deep pore cleanser and honey almond body scrub are luxuries that you may wish to skip in your pre-dressing rituals if you want to get to the party on time. But, if you do want to look the part, a vintage cassette-player and your very own copy of Huey Lewis and the News’ ‘Hip To Be Square’ is an absolute must.
This costume may not guarantee you the instantaneous roar of affection from your fellow party-goers that dressing up like your typical superhero would. But who wants to wear their underwear outside their clothes just because it’s halloween? Besides, anybody who doesn’t understand that you’re dressed as Patrick Bateman probably isn’t worth being your friend anyway.
