How to Dress Like Sam and Dean Winchester From Supernatural
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have a very unique, rural, rugged, and stylish way of dressing. I have been a fan of the series since season one and felt pretty confident one day that I could duplicate this style for myself and adopt a similar look. The following are some of the actual clothes picked straight from the series as well as items I have found that are very similar to interchange with the originals to give it a personal touch.
Let's start on the outside and work our way in, starting with Dean's famous Leather Jacket. Now since it is such an important piece of his look, I decided to mention it. However, his particular jacket is a one of a kind piece that was said to be stolen just before the Season 6 promotional shoot. There are many look-a-likes though that can get all the way up to $450. The maker of this coat seems to be Wilson's Leather/M. Julian. Check this out though! Another signature Dean jacket is his Military Jackets. The styles are discontinued from the GAP but they have new ones out now that are very similar, as well as this one I have found from Hollister Clothing Co.
Sam has a very simple to recognize Carhartt Jacket he wears in most of the series. It is a nice brown jacket/hoodie straight with the Carhartt logo dead on the front. It adds a lot to the look if you are going for a "Sweet Sam' over a "Weathered Dean". Don't forget the best part about this very functional coat; It is extremely warm. Are you going out with your buds into the mountains to take out a Wendigo? Take this coat with you to fight off the cold.
The button-ups are the easiest to duplicate in style and wear. They both have them, and they both alternate similar looks. While Sam tends to favor plaid, Dean is seen mostly in solid earth colors. Carhartt is up again for their heavy sandstone twill long sleeve shirts that sport that little logo on the pocket. You can pick it out especially on Dean's dark blue shirt, but you can find other colors of the same make to suit your own preference. Sam wears a bit of American Eagle, and you can't go wrong with Carhartt, but I have found that Pacsun offers a brand called 44mm clothing that fits very nicely and definitely fits the Sam look; the solid colors also work great for Dean.
Diesel Jeans are what these guys are wearing. Straight leg or boot cut? Dean wears straight, but you can decide on your own. I have found that many dark Hollister boot cut jeans like "Boomer" also fit the bill for completing the look. Whatever you choose to wear, make sure it's rugged, and worn.
Dean is mostly known to wear a specific pendant that is later revealed in a flashback to be from Sam when they were children. The guys where some nice watches too. Someone mentioned Dean wearing a MTM Black Patriot, but I also trust Fossil for my watches. Take a look at a few below.

You have to give credit where credit is due, and the last thing that ties this look together are the shoes. Without the right ones on your feet, it won't be quite the same. Let's start with Dean's brown Rocky GORE-TEX Logger Boots as seen in the picture. It's a great authentic look, but is it comfortable for everyday wear? Probably not. So the happy alternative is found in Sketcher's "Alley Cat" Utility shoe. Not quite that up the ankle feel, so more maneuverability, with much more comfort in the sole. Find this shoe in all the colors you need to work it into your outfit perfectly.
