Scruffy mountain men are isolated and hardworking folk. They are also deprived of everyday city services. These men appear unkempt, hearty and rugged. In order to match this look from the comfort of your home you need to give up a few grooming habits and invest in some heavy-duty work clothing. Mountain men also wear warm insulated clothing. After all, it gets cold up in the mountains.

Things You'll Need

  • Hair gel
  • Heavy work boots, dirty
  • Flannel wool sweater
  • Plain denim jeans
  • Suspenders
  • Dirt

Let your facial and head hair grow out. No haircuts or shaving for as long as possible. Unkempt hair is the trademark of a mountain man. Use hair gel to simulate an unkempt head of hair and to make your hair appear more greasy.

Wear the boots, jeans and flannel sweater. Wear the suspenders on the outside of the sweater for a more authentic mountain man look. Do not wear any accessories such as belts, watches or sunglasses.

Apply some dirt to your hands and clothes. Make the dirt look natural, as though it comes as a result of hard work and from a lack of bathing and clothes washing.

Tips & Warnings

  • In colder climates consider wearing a plain black toque.
