In The Big Lebowski, Jeffrey Lebowski (affectionately called “The Dude” by friends and associates) is a slacker whose simple life is turned upside down when he finds himself thrust into a bizarre kidnapping scheme after being confused for a millionaire by the same name. He frantically attempts to escape his unfortunate circumstance with the aid of a few bowling buddies, including Vietnam vet Walter Sobchak, but the mess just keeps getting messier for The Dude.

How to Dress Like Jeffrey Lebowski

Hair:

As a massive slacker, The Dude doesn’t have much time for follicle maintenance. He has a shaggy, never-combed mop on his head and a scraggly beard that is quite befitting one of California’s finest slackers.

Sweater and Clothing:

The key to The Dude’s signature slacker look is his tan-colored cardigan sweater. The cardigan features a geometric pattern in dark brown. Underneath the sweater, Lebowski wears a eggplant purple v-neck t-shirt.

Purple Pajama Pants:

He tops off his slacker chic by wearing a pair of baggy purple pajama pants with a geometric pattern.

Bath Robe:

In one pivotal scene, Lebowski is roaming a grocery store aisle in true slacker style wearing nothing but some shorts and a light brown bath robe. This is a close replica of The Dude’s robe:

Shoes:

The Dude wears a pair of white sneakers with a black design on the sides that look like an elongated “3” shape. The pair of sneakers listed above as part of the costume guide are nearly identical to Jeff Lebowski’s shoes in the film except for an “8” designed into the 3-shaped pattern.
