Then, you’ll be putting on a fine pair of Black Casual Pants buckled with a simple Black Belt. On top of all that will be a Double Breasted Overcoat. Jump into a pair of Black Captain’s Boots and finish the look off with what will be a nice, sturdy Black Top hat and a pair of Genuine Black Leather Gloves.

Next, you’ll need Black Captain’s Boots and a pair of Genuine Black Leather Gloves. Put on the final piece of apparel to wrap it up, which is an ever-so-classy Black Top Hat.
That’s it, wear that and you can walk anywhere on Earth in style! If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try recreating James Delaney’s scars by putting a bit of red makeup on your face. Couple that with a bit of dirt, and you’ll send any enemy of yours running in the opposite direction!
Who is the real James Delany? Nobody quite knows. But, a better question might be: What is James Delaney? He might just be a mentally ill person, or the devil himself. As far as history goes, James Delany started off as a Corporal of the East India Trading Company. As a Cadet, he showed great promise and was an outstanding student. But then the worst happened and he was lost in Africa.
Presumed dead for over 10-years, he came back to London, physically and mentally scarred, to inherit his father’s shipping empire in the BBC One series Taboo. As expected, things weren’t so easy with powerful men after his blood. But James Delany is no pushover. He’s cunning and ridiculously strong, coldly calculating and not afraid to tear out human throats and hearts. And that’s just the beginning. In Africa, he learned some terrifying rituals as well, further adding to his gory personality. He constantly blurs the line between reality and fantasy.
