Halloween may be over, but that doesn’t mean that it’s too early to start planning for next year’s big fiesta. After all, you don’t want it to be like last year: you procrastinate for weeks, then next thing you know it’s the night before your friend’s big bash and you’re left scrambling for a costume at the last minute, ending up dressed as a creepy clown or electric socket because those were the only costumes left at the store. We’ve assembled a list of the best Halloween costumes for men that you can easily throw together with the stuff you’ve got in your closet, which will not only save you time and money but you’ll look hella cool and get so many compliments that your ego may just go up a few points.
Hugh Hefner may be 86 years old, but he is clearly still the man when it comes to women and his billion-dollar Playboy empire. All you need to duplicate this look is a robe (preferably made of silk or satin) and a pipe (but a cigar will do the trick just as well). Throw on some bedroom slippers and a hot chick on each arm and you’ll be welcomed into the Playboy Mansion with open arms, making this one of the best Halloween costumes for men.
If there are three items every dude owns, they are a shirt, socks, and a pair of shades. This is one of the best Halloween costumes for men because it gives you an excuse to go around short less for the night (although we do recommend wearing underwear or boxer briefs, for the sake of others). Make your grand entrance into the party with Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” to really get the party started.
What better character to portray than 007 himself? Any suit or tuxedo will do to help you capture this look. Slick back your hair, grab a martini glass and when people ask who you are, just cock your head to side and say, “Bond. James Bond.” Guaranteed you’ll have the hottest chicks in the room trying to get your attention, making this one of the best Halloween costumes for men.
