A light colored ball cap is an easy start. As far as his eyewear, there are a couple of options. You can represent his outdoor look with a fresh pair of aviators or rock his indoor look by donning a pair of black framed fashion glasses.

The bottom half of this look is all about layering. A flannel shirt under a cardigan, topped with a brown bomber jacket and wrapped with a plaid scarf; not only will you nail Mr. Robot’s look; you’ll be ready to face and cold weather. If you’re not already too hot, include a pair of cutoff gloves and add a book to hold. Any book would work, covering a book with blank paper and then writing the title of Tolstoy’s book will save you some serious bucks. Bring a friend along to represent cyber security engineer Eliot Alderson, and you’ll do Mr. Robot proud!
