How to Dress Like Saul Goodman
Saul parts his hair on the side and brushes his hair over so that it reveals most of his forehead. In some scenes he also wears a bluetooth headset, so you could add that to add to the tackiness.
Wear a normal looking business suit and then pick out a very loud colored dress shirt. Saul a lot of times wears bright macaroni yellow, pink, teal, or red shirts. Then find a tie that alllmost matches but has a crazy pattern on it and stands out from the shirt. Goodwill or other thrift stores usually have a lot of old, ugly ties for cheap.
You could also cut the tip of another clashing tie and use that as a pocket square, or if you have one you can use that. You can find some ugly cheap cufflinks online for your costume or create your own using gold buttons and safety pins and hot glue.
Saul also wears a little blue awareness ribbon, which can easily be made using ribbon and glue and pinned on with a pin. Finish off the look with some dress shoes; you’re ready for work!
