Jughead’s Overall Look
Though there are a few variations of Jughead’s outfit, there’s a specific version that caught the attention of cosplayers from the get-go.

Riverdale Jughead VS Comicbook Jughead
The biggest difference between Riverdale Jughead and his comic book version, as far as clothing is concerned, is the amount of layers. Comic book Jug would rock turtle neck sweater with a big “S” in the front and his customary whoopie hat. Black pants and shoes. That was it.
Riverdale Jughead, on the other hand, has an assortment of layers to go with the iconic “S” shirt and the crown-shaped beanie hat, starting with the sherpa lined jackets. Sometimes denim and sometimes plaid.
On ocassions he might tie a plaid shirt around his waist or just wear it properly. It’s not unusual to catch him wearing a hoodie under his sherpa lined jacket.
Jughead, portrayed by Cole Sprouse, is a life-long friend of Archie and Betty. Following the arrest of FP Jones, Jug’s father and leader of the Southside Serpents Gang, jughead went under foster care and went to Southside High for a while before it had to be closed down.
Now a member of the Southside Serpetns, Jughead gets to take care of his mother and his sister. Plus, he gets use his father’s trailer and bike as way to hang on to his memory. This is a grim and darker take on Archie’s classics so it makes sense to create an equally dark backstory for one of the most eccenctric and mysterious characters in the franchise.
