Fight Club received a much better reaction when it was released on DVD, generating a cult following.
The Tyler Durden costume will be the red leather jacket costume as it is the most known Tyler Durden outfit. I will add all the links to the items needed to complete this costume along with informative descriptions as well.
Red leather jacket
For the Tyler Durden costume red leather Jacket, I found on amazon. This was a very nice jacket, for the price. The size was good, in that it doesn’t run small or big. It looks very much like the jacket used by Tyler Durden. I see some reviewers saying that this jacket is made from real leather, I would have to disagree. I do think that the leather used is of such high quality that people might think it’s real. The stitching on the jacket impressed me as a wasn’t expecting much for the price. Overall an excellent jacket and a must for anyone cosplaying as Tyler Durden
Hawaiian floral Shirt
For the Tyler Durden costume Hawaiian shirt, I got on eBay. It was hard to find an exact match to the one he used in the film but I think the one I found is a pretty close match. The shirt was cheap so I wasn’t expecting much. The quality was ok, I found it quite boxy but it did the job I needed to do and looked really good with the leather jacket.
Dark Navy pants
For the pants, I got them on amazon. I went for a dark navy pair of pants as it is what he wears with this particular outfit. I had bought Dickies clothing before for costumes and I had no problems with them and this pants was no different. Good quality and a perfect fit.
For the shoes, I acquired on amazon. I often say if you have any shoes at home that you think will fit this Tyler Durden costume, then use them and save your money. If you don’t then go with the pair I bought. These are a dark shoe not light like the picture, which I knew before buying. They look great and suit the overall look of the Tyler Durden costume.
Red tint aviators
For the Tyler Durden costume red tint aviators, I got on amazon. I bought these solely as a prop for this costume, these are very cheap and would not advise you use these as sunglasses. they look exactly like the glasses Tyler Durden uses. Great prop glasses nothing more.
Fight club soap
To finish off the Tyler Durden costume, I saw this fight club soap for sale on eBay. I did not purchase this but I thought I should include it in case you are interested.
