Costumet Team

You’ve probably heard of the genius, bomb-diffusing Macgyver; but do you know his silly counterpart Macgruber? Macgruber is a Special Ops agent tasked to diffuse different bombs in his sketch in Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately for him and his companions, rarely does he prevent detonation because of his emotional outbursts.

Macgruber’s attire looks comical but is a near match to Macgyver’s 1985 outfit. He wears a blue plaid button-down shirt, beige fishing vest, and denim pants. He also sports dirty blonde hair and an awesome pair of brown Aviators. Here’s everything you need to look like Macgruber.
