Dress Like Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead

Dressing to Kill...

Granted, with only dirty, worn out clothes and a small collection of survivalist accessories, the grungy look of The Walking Dead's lovable hero, Daryl Dixon (played by everyone's favorite Boondock Saint, Norman Reedus), may not seem exactly GQ. But with the addition of a little bit of heart, a lotta bit of attitude, and one heaping load of badass, this tough-yet-sensitive zombie slayer manages to make his unique outdoorsman style the most fashionable attire of the zombie apocalypse. And now that you're here, you can be fashionable too!

From his ripped up shirts, to the make and model of his beloved crossbow, here you will find a collection of the various clothes and accessories worn and used by Daryl from AMC's The Walking Dead. So whether you're dressing for success to kick ass in the apocalypse, or you're just looking for a great Daryl outfit for your next costume party, this is the place to be!

Cotton Twill Shirt with Ripped Off Sleeves | Tough yet delicate. We really are what we wear.

Strong, durable, easy to clean, and good to wear on those especially hot days of zombie killing, these cotton twill shirts are great for the hard working survivors out there (especially if you keep a few top buttons undone).

Daryl rips his sleeves off manually, of course, but if you want to click one of the links below, you may be able to save yourself the trouble.

Winged Leather Vest | Even the hardest among us can be angels.

Become one of Hell's little angels with one of Daryl's most unique clothing items, this winged leather motorcycle vest, which he typically wears over his other shirts and jackets.

This hard to find item is currently being crafted and sold by a fan of the show online. Click the link below to find out more information!

The Crossbow | Guns are dangerous. Use arrows instead!

Zombie killing really is serious business, folks. And while your first instinct may be to go for the classic sawed-off shotgun or Dirty Harry pistol when the dead finally rise, you, sir or madam, will be forgetting one important factor... they're too loud! Those deadheads will hear those blasts a mile away!

No, no, no. You're smarter than that. What you want is the silent-but-deadly crossbow. It's stealthy, the ammo can be reused, no gunpowder is required, and, frankly, it just looks real darn cool; just look at our pal Daryl, whose own crossbow is a Horton Scout 125.

The Hunting Knife | Whether for your next meal or your next zombie kill, a good knife is essential

When battling the undead, a nice sharp hunting knife is always one of your most important accessories when it comes to stealthy, up close combat (not to mention it's also helpful when you're wanting squirrel for supper!). In The Walking Dead, Daryl Dixon's knife of choice is the Team Gemini Busse Combat Knife with satin finish.

(Sorry! Hubpages won't allow these links! Try using a Google search for the above mentioned knife instead)

Oh! And don't forget you knife sheath!

Poncho | Like the Man With No Name. Only with, uh... well, a name.

Sometimes a vest and a simple ripped up shirt just isn't enough in the world of the undead. Sometimes you need clothing more suitable and representative of the wild west-like atmosphere of The Walking Dead. In those times, you want to get yourself a nice, comfy poncho.

Unfortunately, though, Daryl Dixon fashioned his poncho himself using a horse blanket (well, technically his costume designer fashioned it, if you want to quibble about it) so I can't point you to a direct source to purchase this item. But feel free to search around online, and I'm sure you'll find something suitable for your needs.

Possible choices?

Plaid Shirts with Cut Off Sleeves | Plaid. Not just for lumberjacks anymore...

Walking dead or no walking dead, plaid will always remain the number one shirt for anyone wanting to be a mans man (that includes you too, ladies!). And as we all know, no one is more of a mans man than Daryl Dixon. In The Walking Dead Daryl can be seen wearing a variety of these classic, testosterone-oozing shirts, and he almost always slices off those pesky sleeves; because who needs those anyway? Pansies, that's who.

      Amazing how long dirty hair and worn out ripped up clothes can look good. I have a feeling that if this was real life not a tv show, the smell might be enough to put people off.
