Han Solo Costume – Solo: A Star Wars Story
A Han Solo costume can be made for a relatively price since only a few items of clothing and a couple of accessories are needed. Here is what you will need to make a Han Solo costume.
Han Solo Jacket
|Han Solo’s jacket is on of the most important and distinctive items of clothing that he wears. Without the Han Solo jacket your costume will fail to look authentic.
The Han Solo jacket is very unique so while you could choose to wear a simple brown suede jacket the only way you can make your Han Solo costume look awesome is to buy a replica of the jacket he wears in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Han Solo Shirt
|The shirt that is worn by Han Solo is one quite simple to get right.
In the movie Han Solo wears a black shirt with no buttons down the front. The neck of the shirt s a v-shape neck.
You could choose any black t-shirt but for things to be 100% movie accurate wear a black v-neck t-shirt.
Han Solo Pants
|The pants that Han Solo wears in Solo: A Star Wars Story are black with a gold stripe down the outside of each leg.
If you can find a pair of replica Han Solo pants use them but they may prove it difficult to find.
As an alternative you can wear a pair of black pants or jeans. If you wish you can add your own gold stipe down the side for authenticity.
Han Solo Boots
|Han Solo wears a pair of black leather knee high boots. They have a flat sole.
There are plenty of boots that will work for you Han Solo costume but since not many men own knee high boots there is always the option of wearing horse riding boots or simply buying a pair of replica Han Solo boots.
These can be bought relatively cheaply and are 100% movie accurate.
Han Solo Belt

It is not essential to wear a double prong belt for your Han Solo costume but for things to look their best use either a dark brown or black belt which is quite wide.
Han Solo’s belt is quite important because when you add the holster the belt will help stop your pants from falling down.
