It was a very easy costume to put together. I bought a matching shirt and pants at St. Viny's (in a khaki color so when dyed they would have a similar shade) I was debating between making a hat and buying one. On one trip to St. Viny's I found this hat and bought it just in case. I am glad I did because I ran out of time getting ready for our party, so I went with what I had! I also found the tie at St. Viny's, and it was yellow!
