Created by Mike Judge in 1999, the plot centers around a group of individuals who work in a software company who grow tired of their jobs. Bill Lumbergh is the main antagonist in the film. He severs as the companies vice president. He offers very little in the way of inspiring and motivating his co-workers.

The Bill Lumbergh costume will include the outfit he almost always wears in the film, the blue shirt, the suspenders. i will leave links underneath to all the items used to complete this costume along with information on all the items as well.
Bill Lumbergh oversized glasses
For the Bill Lumbergh glass, I found on amazon. I choose these because they were affordable and they looked very similar to what is used in the Bill Lumbergh costume. They are comprised of a metal frame and plastic lenses that are non-polarised. The seem well made considering the price of these. Overall I would recommend these for the Bill Lumbergh cosplay.
Blue shirt with white collar
The blue shirt he often wears, I found on amazon. It is a blue and white striped shirt with a white collar and white front pocket with white cuffs. It is made from cotton and polyester. It’s advertised as being a “slim fit” but the consensus is that it’s more of loose fitting. It’s perfect for the Bill Lumbergh costume.
Black dotted yellow tie
He wears quite a few tie’s but the tie he often wears with the blue shirt picked above is the yellow tie with black dots. The row is made from microfibres and measures 59 inches long and 2.2 inches wide. It features a one of a kind geometric designed necktie with a signature embroidered logo. It has tags of authenticity to verify its high quality.
The red suspenders. I found on amazon. They are a Dickies branded product, which always receives high reviews on its products. It has four clasps to ensure it stay firmly secure. It has two adjustable buckles. and has an x-back to ensure it has upright and does slip off.
Initech coffee mug
The costume is not really complete without the Initech coffee mug that seems strapped to Bill Lumbergh’s hands all day. There’s not much to say other than the logo is big, clear and bright. Perfect for the Bill Lumbergh cosplay.
Black pantsDickies Men’s Original 874 Work Pant, Black, 34×32
For black pants, I again chose a Dickies brand. It mad from a blend of polyester and cotton. It features a hook to tab closer, a zip fly. It has two from pockets and two single buttons closed pockets at the rear. It is not wrinkle free but does have some resistance to wrinkles. There are quite an of sizes to choose from. The pants do run a little small.
The last item needed to complete this Bill Lumbergh costume are the black shoes, I chose a formal pair I found on amazon. I picked out a pair of Dockers reasonably price formal shoe. The shoe is made from leather with a rubber sole. It has a once inch heel with a padded collar and capped toe.
