Let’s Hear It For The Boys.
This one is for all the guys (or girls out there hoping to drop a subtle hint to their boyfriends) who have noticed that Dean and Sam Winchester, gracing the screen on CW’s Supernatural have great, comfy, and stylish dress sense.
“I am looking for clothes ‘Sam’ and ‘Dean’ wear. Where can i find clothes that look like theirs?”
I was only all-too-pleased to answer this request. Using hints dropped during DVD commentary relating to costuming on the show as well as a well-trained eye, here is how to capture the carefree, laid-back, rough-and-ready Texan cowboy flair the Winchesters embody so well. Be prepared to practice your strut, though, boys. The attitude doesn’t come standard.
I would point you towards Wrangler and True Religion to find the bootcut jeans the boys wear. Not only that, but those outfitters could provide you with the flannel shirts both Dean and Sam are so commonly seen in. I am surfing Guess at the moment and found a pair of bootcuts Dean would love here. Be sure to check the other sites for similar cuts and comfortable, faded washes–the boys like to be comfortable when they’re slaying demons, after all!
Lucky Brand is currently having a sale and be sure to check out their men’s tops because I just stopped by their sight and saw an array of shirts both brothers would wear. Guess also has promise if you’re going for a Winchester look such as this style, which is similar to one I’ve seen on Sam.
Levi’s eco Twill Jacket (on sale for $79 from $128) looks almost exactly like the one that Dean wears when he decides to switch out his dad’s leather jacket. Also, remember “What Is And What Never Should Be”? That’s also like the jacket he was wearing then, too. Meanwhile, Sam’s denim jacket is also outfitted from Levi’s–called the Trucker Jacket ($68). The younger Winchester also likes shearing jackets and so here is something I’ve seen him wear too: the Sherpa Trucker Jacket in either corduroy or denim ($88).
Dean’s famous leather jacket is something I’m still working on finding but in the meantime, I have two to show you from Leathermodes: the Lambskin Straight or the Leather Car Coat. This is also something he’d choose: Levi’s 2 Pocket Leather Jacket as you can pop the collar like he does on this style and is military cut which is an obvious choice for John Winchester, an ex-Marine, and as we know, Dean sentimentally wears his father’s hand-me-downs.
The guys like to layer t-shirts and Lucky has a few cool prints they’d pick up here. I’d also suggest Skeledog to pick up a cool tshirt design. Remember Sam’s Greyhound shirt from Season 2? It’s loyal and manly and yet just a little bit morbid…kind of like our favorite Hunters.
Dean’s protective charm necklace is available in prop replica off of the WB’s website and AE has some accessories Dean and Sam would wear. Dean would love a leather-band watch like these from the “trend” line of Fossil because it’s edgy yet functional (and probably could stand up to being banged around because you know that guy can’t go an episode without getting his ass kicked :)). Right now, there are eBay listings for replicas of Dean’s elephant hair bracelet that you’d might want to check out too ($14.99).
As for footwear, I found out that the cast of Supernatural is outfitted with Frye boots and shoes.
Of course, close viewing of this clip, which I readily call Jensen Ackles’ greatest moment on television. Otherwise known as the minute-and-a-half of footage that converted a million fans to the show. The CW should give the guy some goodies for that beautiful bit of PR, is all I’m saying.
So, watch it, and learn boys. And remember: always, always block out your plates before parking in front of the security cameras.
