Nathan Drake is an action hero from the "Uncharted" series. He is a very well known icon of the Playstation. Have you ever wanted to dress like him but didn't know how to do it? Look no further because this article will explain how to dress like Nathan Drake.
Step 1. All of Nate's outfits have many things in common
You must have each of the following items before choosing a particular outfit:
Step 2. Belt buckle
Nate always has a large belt buckle, the symbol on the buckle varies depending on the game. In "Uncharted 1" there was a skull on two crossbones, in "Uncharted 2" it had a drawing of a shell and in "Uncharted 3" it had the design of a horseshoe. Obtaining the specific buckle of one of the games is difficult, really expensive, so it is best to use a similar one. There is a replica of the buckle from "Uncharted 3", but it can be very difficult to find.
Step 3. Nate's ring necklace
Nate never goes anywhere without his ancestor Sir Francis Drake's ring. There are many replicas on the internet from places like Shapeways or Etsy. However, these rings do not come with cords, so you will need to purchase some leather cord to tie the ring. The price range depends on the seller. You can also find an official ring from the third set on places like eBay. However, the official ring is of low quality and is quite expensive with a constant increase in price. You can also buy a simple steel ring and some leather cord.
Step 4. Shoes
Commonly, Nate's shoes are not the center of attention. But if you want to be 100% similar, you will need to buy a pair of brown hiking shoes. However, as these are quite expensive, you can wear a pair of dark sneakers.
Step 5. Gun holster
Nathan Drake is always seen with his shoulder pistol holster and his "45 Defender" (pistol). Make sure to get a fake gun to prevent people from freaking out. You can purchase the fake pistols and holster at costume stores and various places on the internet.
Step 6. Clock
Nathan Drake wears a leather circular watch with a brown leather bracelet underneath.
Step 7. Choose the outfit you want to wear
Nate wears different outfits in each game. The choice of your clothes depends on the weather and the situation. For example, he wears lighter clothing in the desert than he would in Nepal.
Step 8. The usual dress
Nate is usually seen in jeans and a simple long-sleeved T-shirt. Any pair of blue jeans will look good. Even ripped jeans can add more effect to your outfit. For the shirt, you can choose between a long-sleeved white or a long-sleeved brown with a white t-shirt. Another variation on her outfit is an olive green Henley shirt.
Step 9. The clothing for the desert
In "Uncharted 3", Nate visits Rav al Khali which is one of the largest deserts in the world. Nate wears a Henley shirt (collarless shirt) and beige cargo pants instead of his usual jeans. Nate also wears a Middle Eastern “AKA Shemagh scarf”. You can find Henley shirts in many stores, but if for some reason you can't find one, a regular white shirt will do. For the "shemagh," make sure you have a blue and white one, and wrap it around your neck. Shemaghs are very easy to find on the internet for a reasonable price.
Step 10. The clothing to hide
In "Uncharted 2," Nate carries out a heist at a museum in Turkey. For this outfit you need a black shirt, black carpenter jeans, black sneakers, headphones and a pair of black gloves. All of these clothing items can be found in most stores.
Step 11. Nepal
The Nepalese outfit is Nate's usual outfit with a brown jacket.
Step 12. Teen Nate
In "Uncharted 3," you play for a short time with a fourteen-year-old Nate. For this outfit, you need a red and white baseball-style shirt, blue jeans, a pair of high-top sneakers, a metal analog watch, and a brown backpack. Teen Nate wears the analog watch on his belt. You will also need disheveled hair.
Step 13. Grow your beard
Nate doesn't always have time to shave when he's on a quest for adventure. Don't shave for a few days, if possible a week.
Step 14. Groom your hair like Nate
Nate's hair is very short with upright bangs. To achieve this style you will need to have very short hair, your favorite styling product (gel, wax, etc.) and a comb. When you have applied the product to your head, comb your bangs up and the rest of your hair forward.
- Most items will not be 100% accurate like the game, so it is usually easier to have a similar (or close enough) item.
- If you want, you can make your clothes look dirty and worn.
- Avoid using the pistol holster if you live in a country that is very strict with firearms and other weapons.
- Make sure not to wear a black and white mesh shemagh because it is associated with the Middle East conflict.
