You are not your f*king khakis. But...

Being a renowned uber-fan of David Fincher's cult-classic, Fight Club, people are always asking me if I know Tyler Durden — or, more specifically, if I know where they can snag some of Tyler Durden's super cool wardrobe. Well, as luck would have it, I could be of (some) assistance.

Tyler tells us that advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy crap we don't need; and he's totally correct. But, hey, some stuff is just cool and we want it. Besides, if Tyler didn't want us falling prey to the influence of advertising and consumerism, then he shouldn't have been such a stylish devil.

Of course, no one should ever completely idolize and emulate Mr. Durden or his ostentatious style. First of all, you'd never get away with looking quite as cool (unless you happen to be Brad Pitt circa 1999). Secondly, emulation and idolization is precisely the opposite of what both Tyler's style and message is about. That being said, there's no reason not to take notes of some of his style and to wear some of his garb in small doses at a time.

Below I will list some of Tyler's most well known clothing and fashion accessories, throw in a quick sales pitch, and let the dice fall where they may. After all, we're all consumers. Why not consume?

Red Leather Jacket

Sleek. Comfortable. Red...

Perhaps the most well-known and recognizable piece of Tyler Durden's attire is his signature red leather jacket.

This piece goes especially well with a loud and gaudy t-shirt when you're feeling casual, or a nice (equally loud) Hawaiian shirt when your feeling more business. A pair of Gothic Rose sunglasses (you can find these below) will finish off the ensemble splendidly.

Biker Jacket with White Arm Stripes

Like a cool breeze on a warm summers eve...

You don't have to own a loud, obnoxious and over-compensating motorcycle to sport a Biker Jacket these days, folks. The Hells Angels are yesterday’s news (please don’t tell them I said that). Today is the day of the Space Monkey (not to be confused with The Gutter Monkey). And the Space Monkey is free to dress however he darn well pleases. And leather is in.

So while you're out trashing those silly baby boomer Volkswagen's with the hippy flowers embroidered on the wheel, or when you get the urge to take down “the man” by causing a little chaos elsewhere, be sure to do it in style by wearing this fine item.

It’s a red leather jacket (Tyler must have a thing for red, eh?) with white stripes running down each shoulder and a white band wrapping around each bicep. While it’s not seen being worn quite as much as our previously mentioned red leather jacket, this is still one of Tyler’s more popular pieces of wardrobe. Which works out pretty swell for us. That popularity means that there’s a lot of creative fans and entrepreneurs out there making copies and exact replicas and splattering them all across the big and beautiful interwebs for our purchasing pleasure.

Below is one of the better replica’s that I’ve come across during my extensive and exhaustive researching (all that typing can really cramp the fingers you know, it’s hard work). It has two inner and two outer pockets, original YKK zips (whatever that means), viscose lining, it’s made of genuine sheepskin leather, and comes in a large variety of sizes to fit both the bitch titted Bobs and bitch sized Narrators out there in Project Mayhem.

Fur Coat - OUT OF STOCK

Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be a straight up G, hip-hop superstar to wear fur these days; nor do you have to hunt down and slaughter a poor old grizzly bear either. This fur is faux, and is both bold and eloquent. It’s perfect for keeping warm in the Alaskan wilderness or wearing in the big city streets to show off how generally friggin’ cool you are.

Unfortunately, all this hype is unnecessary, however, because this coat is not currently available at any place that I can find. But if you’re desperate enough and do a little hunting around you're sure to find one that’s at least visually similar. I mean seriously, how spot-on do you have to be with a fur coat? Call me low-class, but they all look pretty much the same anyway, don’t they?

Tyler Durden Hustler Shirt

Hustler Shirt

Be a hustler...

Whether you're eating truffles, feeling lustful, getting in scuffles, or doing the hustle (I’m really shoehorning my ass off right now), this shirt is a winner that's fantastic for all occasions. So let go of your inhibitions and let your wild side thrive with this original, one of a kind item. Your woman will love it (not that we need women).

Word of warning, this particular shirt is meant to be a pretty snug fitting piece of clothing. You may be in need of a healthy dose of confidence — or a Brad Pitt-esque, carved from marble, god-like physique — to pull it off. Either that or be totally cool with, and prepared for, a barrage of “Fat Club” jokes that are inevitably going to be thrown your way. Then again, who cares what other people think? Besides, if anyone tries to get snotty, just tell them your name is Robert Paulson.

Tyler Durden Coffee Cups Robe

Coffee Cups Bathrobe

Start your days off right...

Whether you're just waking up from a long night of romping around with the missus or simply lounging around your dilapidated home, training future space monkeys for action, this comfortable grungy-yet-homey Coffee Cups bathrobe is enough to make even Hugh Hefner himself ooze with envy. "Ooze" being a word this robe is perhaps far too acquainted with, by the way.

Sadly, our friends at Amazon seem to be sorely lacking in this cozy piece of morning-wear. Fret not, though, as the internet is a vast and wonderful place and anything you want can and will be found with a diligent enough researcher at your disposal. Below, this researcher has found a nice looking replica from our talented and creative friends at Rose Garden Boutique.

Sock It To Me Shirt

An eye for an eye makes everyone blind...

Sometimes a man has to make a stand while not making a move. For as history shows us, the most effective aggression is passive aggression. Gandhi did it; he called it Satyagraha. Tyler Durden did it as well, and we call that, well... we call that a delightfully operative way of getting things done.

So while you're out practicing your non-violent resistance, be sure to do it with a little irony by sporting this Sock It To Me t-shirt.

Tyler Durden Bee Healthy Shirt
Tyler Durden Bee Healthy Shirt

Bee Healthy Shirt

Prepare to sting your friends with envy when you go out sporting this cute and cuddly piece of attire. Because honey ain't the only sweet thing about this vintage Fight Club replica "Bee Healthy" t-shirt from Dadawan!

Along with being the buzz of the neighborhood, you'll be fighting the status quo when you show the world once and for all that even the toughest guys can wear yellow and get away with it (there is no shame).

Ugh. Alright. Enough with the puns. This is getting ridiculous.

Oakley Mars Sunglasses

Stand out in a crowd...

Do you suffer from male pattern baldness? Are you a neo-Nazi? Do you need a new style to match your recent chemo therapy? Whatever the cause of your chrome domeium, fear not. For these Oakley Mars sunglasses will pull your cue ball look together in an instant!

(also available for the hairy)

These sunglasses are seen being worn by Tyler Durden sometime near the end of the film (during the big revelation that this movie was even way cooler than you had thus-far been assuming). They're worn along with that aforementioned fur coat that I have absolutely no idea of where to find a replica of. Luckily for us, similar looking sunglasses weren't quite as much of a chore to come across. You can find a good looking similar pair at the Amazon link that I’ve placed below. They may not be exact replicas, but as far as I can tell they are pretty darn close.

As usual, if anyone out there has a better copy of this item (or any other item on our list) leave the information in the comments section at the bottom of the article and we’ll have it added to the list post haste.

Motocross Shirt - OUT OF STOCK

With a collage of assorted motocross photos, this t-shirt brings about the outdoorsy adventurous redneck in us all.

Unfortunately, however, this particular product is no longer available at this time; at least not anywhere that I can find. Nevertheless, try to keep a look out. You never know what the future holds or when it will become available again.

Until that time comes though, try checking out visually similar items from Amazon.com. Hell, all you really need a loud and tacky blue shirt anyway. Who'll know the difference? Right?

If anyone gets word on where we can hunt down this shirt, feel free to leave the information in the comments section below and I’ll add it to our list on the double.

Gothic Rose Sunglasses

See things clearly...

Sure, you may have nihilistic tendencies with strong masochistic inclinations, but when you look at the world through these stylish rose colored glasses, all seems well and all feels right. They even work well at night!

A good, giant pair of colorful glasses is one of your most must-have accessories if you're looking for a Tyler Durden styled outfit or costume. Along with his red leather jacket (either of his red leather jackets), this in fact is probably your only necessary addition if you're wanting to capture this characters signature look and style. Of course, a pack of cigarettes, some 12 pack abdominal muscles and a perfectly squared jaw wouldn't hurt too much either.

You can find replicas and copies of Tyler Durden's many sunglasses easily online. Like most of Tyler’s ensemble, they also hold their own even if you’re not wearing them with the specific objective of trying to look like our anti-establishment hero. Check out the link below for a pair that your dedicated researcher has come across on Amazon. I think they should suffice nicely for your needs here today.

Red Aviator Sunglasses

Be a rockstar...

It's time to take back the aviator shades from the spoiled, douche faces of those hideous reality show stars, bubblegum pop stars, and millionaire heiresses, and put them back onto the gritty, manly faces that made them so cool in the first place.

These classic shades have been a staple of rockstardome and all-around awesomeness for years, from Jim Morrison, to Top Gun, to Lou Reed, and Peter Fonda. Help carry on this badass tradition in pure Tyler Durden style by purchasing a pair of these sleek, cheap, red aviator sunglasses for yourself.

This is the first pair of sunglasses that we find Tyler Durden wearing near the beginning of Fight Club when Tyler and the narrator first meet on their shared airplane flight together. They’re also the pair of sunglasses that are usually the most associated with this classic movie character, making them an essential must-have accessory if you’re shooting for a full-blown Tyler Durden costume.

Be warned: to the best of my knowledge, the pair of glasses that I’ve found (pictured in the link below) aren’t designed to be authentic Tyler Durden replica shades. But as far as I can make out they are a very visually similar pair and should work perfectly well if you happen to be going for the Durden look. Besides, they’re ridiculously low costing, so what do you have to lose? With that being said, I’ll continue to keep an eye open for any pairs of sunglasses that come along that are specifically designed to be Tyler Durden replicas. As always, I’ll keep an ear open too, so be sure to leave a comment below if you’ve got any information to share that’ll help us out in finding a more exact-looking pair.
