Richie Tenenbaum is a fictional character that appears in the comedy-drama called “The Royal Tenenbaums”. Created by Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson in 2001, Richie Tenenbaum is one of three gifted Siblings, who at a young age, enjoy great success. This success, however, does not stay with them in adolescent years. Richie is a tennis prodigy, who has a secret affliction for his step sister Margot. His tennis career ends when he has a severe nervous breakdown during a tennis game. The Royal Tenenbaums was met, for themes part with positive reviews from critics and the general public.
The costume we will be focusing from the Royal Tenenbaums will be the Richie Tenenbaum costume, portrayed by Luke Wilson. I will add all the links to the items needed to put this costume together along with information on the items used as well.
Richie Tenenbaum sweatband and wristband set
For the sweat and wristband, I found a set on Wes- Anderson. In the set, I got the sweatband, two wristbands. These are advertised as being the same sweat and wristbands used in the Richie Tenenbaum costume. The rare made from good quality cotton that feels fantastic along with other materials that include spandex and nylon. Overall I’m happy with my purchase, good quality products.
Richie Tenenbaum costume polo shirt
For the Richie Tenenbaum costume polo shirt, I found on amazon. I got mine at another online store that doesn’t sell them anymore but I found a seller on amazon. It is made completely from cotton. It has a three button red placket with a navy collar. The shirt is impart inspired by the Sweedish tennis player Björn Borg. I cannot comment on the quality as I didn’t purchase from this seller.
Richie Tenenbaum beard
The Richie Tenenbaum style beard I got on amazon. I haven’t purchased many fake beards before so I didn’t know what to expect when I got this but I have to I was pleasantly surprised. I love the fact that it sits seamlessly on your face i.e. no elastic bands to hold it just the adhesive which did the job perfectly and didn’t once fall off. Overall great fake beard for the price, perfect for the elastic bands Richie Tenenbaum costume.
Richie Tenenbaum beige blazer
For the beige Richie Tenenbaum blazer, I got on Amazon. It took me a while to find one that suit the Richie Tenenbaum costume as most where suit type blazers. The one I used was a cashmere coat. This is probably one of the nicest coats I’ver ever purchased. It is made from 95% lamb wool, 5% cashmere. The comfort is level when wearing this, is behind words and how soft it feels. The size was perfect as well. Overall I highly recommend this coat. I use it quite a lot for nights out and I’ve gotten many compliments from the ladies as well lol 😉
Riche Tenenbaum sunglasses
The Richie Tenenbaum sunglasses he uses are made by Vuarnet, I got mine on Amazon. I didn’t get the exact type he uses as they were way too expensive but I did find a cheaper Vuarnet line of glasses as I only needed them for the Richie Tenenbaum costume. They weren’t bad for the price, obviously, you can tell they don’t have the premium look and feel of the higher priced Vuarnet sunglasses but they did what I needed them to do for this costume.
For the beige pants, I got on amazon. I choose a pair of chinos as they were the best-rated beige pair of pants I could find. They are made from cotton and what appears to be spandex but I could be wrong. The sizing was good and the pants were comfortable to wear. overall a good pair of chinos.
To finish off the Riche Tenenbaum we are going to need a pair of black loafers, which I got on Amazon. These are a very classy pair of shoes. I actually wear these to formal events now. they fit perfectly and are quite comfy. I highly recommend these loafers.
