Tate Langdon Stripped Sweater
The first item of clothing that you will need if you want to dress like Tate Langdon is a replica of the sweater that he wears.
The sweater that he wears is a long sleeve woollen sweater with horizontal brown and green stripes around the arms and body.
If you pay close attention to the scenes in the early episodes of American Horror Story: Murder House you will notice that Tate Langdon wears a white t-shirt under his stripped sweater.
It appears to be a thermal vest style t-shirt. W have made this assumption due to the visible vertical lines that are seen. While not imperative to the costume it is still an important part of the costume if you with to be 100% accurate.

Tate Langdon Trench Coat
The most important part of this version of the Tate Langdon costume is the long black trench coat that he wears.

The final part, and the hardest, of the Tate Langdon costume is the face paint makeup that he wears while walking the corridors.
There are several scenes where Tate Langdon does not wear the makeup but if you really want your Tate Langdon costume to look awesome, and are capable, we would certainly advice trying to replicate his skull style makeup that he has on his face.
