The Man in Black

The Man in Black is one of the main characters in the sci-fi western TV series, Westworld. He also happens to be the most mysterious one, and even if he has no compunction killing, torturing or mutilating the artificial beings in the park, we must admit, he is very stylish.
So, we prepared this full guide if you want to dress like the Man in Black interpreted by Ed Harris.

Check out our complete guide to dress like the Man in Black in Westworld:

Complete Man in Black Costume Guide

Cowboy hat

The cowboy hat that Ed Harris wears in Westworld for his Man in Black role is all black, made of felt, and has a slightly higher than regular crown.
It is custom made by Baron Hats but is quite expensive.
The Woolrich felt outback hat is a close match.

Jacket

The jacket that Ed Harris wears in Westworld for his Man in Black role is a corded velvet blazer.
It has been woven in upstate New York by an artisan and another hand-painted it afterwards, so you won't be able to get the exact same.
You can buy this textured blazer as a cheap alternative.

Scarf

The scarf or necktie that Ed Harris wears in Westworld for his Man in Black role is actually a foulard that is also made from a locally sourced fabric.
This taupe fabric is cheap and very similar so you can easily make your own foulard.

Waistcoat

The waistcoat that Ed Harris wears in Westworld for his Man in Black role is, like every costume from the show, custom-made. It is black with lighter stripes.
We recommend you buy an all black waistcoat that you will be able to use for other occasions.

Knife

The Man In Black's knife was a popular sidearm in the early 1800s, gaining fame with American Pioneer James Bowie. It features a classic clip-point blade, genuine rosewood grip with brass pins and a solid brass pommel.

    This is a fantastic guide. Thank you!
    I found some additions that might be useful.
    Here’s a link to a replica LeMat revolver http://www.historicreplicaguns.com/lemat-revolver.html. The only difference between this and the Man in Black’s revolver is there’s no finger rest on the trigger guard.
    For those willing to go the extra mile, check out this website for custom made gunbelts and holsters. http://www.westerngunleather.com/ The Ranger gunblet and the Nueces holster looks like they’re the closest. Ask for a right-hand cross draw. The proprietor, Don, seems like a really nice guy.
    The cartridges The Man in Black uses (and can be put in loops on the belt) are .38 short colt. And the shotgun shells are 20 Gauge Brass shotshells. I could only find the 12 gauge brass shells. https://goo.gl/CaMyZv
    Good luck and happy cosplay!
