To recreate his most iconic outfit, you will first need to procure a long-sleeved denim button-down shirt. Because Tommy Chong goes for the denim-on-denim look, you’ll also need a pair of distressed jeans in a matching color. Once you’ve got the main aspect of the costume down, you can work on the upper half. You’ll need a curly black wig that you can wear a red bandana around to achieve his iconic look. It wouldn’t be Tommy Chong without his famous facial hair, so get a fake beard and mustache to wear if you can’t grow your own. Finish that off with a pair of round-framed glasses and a pair of brown shoes to complete the look.
