Henry “Hank” Schrader is an agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration and the brother in-law of Walter White on AMC’s Breaking Bad.

​Hank is known to have a bit of an abrasive personality, but is well respected among his colleagues. Hank’s position within the D.E.A. is a major source of conflict for Walt, who at times takes advantage of inside information unwittingly provided by Hank.

​Ultimately, Walt’s connections within the criminal underground view Walt as a liability due to his loyalty to Hank, who pays dearly for his obsession with bringing “Heisenberg” to justice.

Ahead you will find a guide to help you replicate the fashion and style of Hank Schrader.​

An Introduction to Hank's Jackets

Throughout the course of the series, Hank has been known to wear a few different jackets and also a variety of blazers - most notably in brown.

His most prominent jacket to make an appearance is his zip-up, black, casual bomber jacket. He is noted to wear a dark D.E.A. windbreaker during the first season as well.​

This casual bomber jacket in black is nearly identical to the one worn by Hank (minus the zipper-pocket on the sleeve).

​Here is a brown blazer that is very similar to the one worn by Hank while on duty at the Drug Enforcement Administration. Click here to check current availability.

Hank's Headgear

Hank Schrader isn’t particularly known for wearing many different hats, but he has been noted to wear at least one. During the time after he injures himself while bottling his home brew “Schraderbrau,” he is seen wearing a straw fedora hat.

This fedora by Tommy Bahama is very similar to the hat worn by Hank on AMC’s Breaking Bad.

The Shirts of Hank Schrader

Hank’s shirts come in a variety of different styles and colors. Most often however they seem to be in different shades of orange and brown.

He is known to wear t-shirts, polos, button-down dress shirts and casual bowling style shirts. Also many of his shirts have short sleeves rather than long.

This orange heather t-shirt is quite similar to the one Hank is seen wearing while he takes Walter Jr. to the crystal palace for a pep-talk.

Here is a black and gray vintage bowling style shirt that is quite similar to the ones worn frequently by Hank Schrader.​

Here is an orange casual shirt that is almost identical to the shirt worn by Hank when he discovers Walt’s alter ego, by reading the inscription written in a book that was given to Walt by Gale Boetticher (a known cook employed by former meth kingpin, Gus Fring).​

This orange shirt by Polo is very much alike the shirt worn by Hank on Breaking Bad.​

Trying on Hank's Trousers

Hank Schrader’s pants and trousers are fairly basic and he is known to frequently wear only a few different colors and/or styles. Including: Dark wash blue jeans, khaki trousers and straight-leg black slacks.

​These dark wash blue jeans by Levi’s are a very good match to the jeans worn by Hank Schrader, both on and off duty.

Here is a set of black trousers that are a fine match to the pants worn by Agent Hank Schrader of the D.E.A.​

Hank's Fantastic Footwear

Like the majority of characters we cover, Hanks shoes aren’t particularly notable or even visible very often in the show. That being said, we do know for certain that he is known to at least wear a set of black colored loafers.

These black loafers by Dockers are a very good match to the ones worn by Hank when he mercilessly attacks Jesse Pinkman in Jesse’s own home.

Accessories Used by Hank Schrader

Hank is known to make use of several different accessories throughout his appearances in the series. Most of which serve him best while in the field as an agent for the D.E.A.  As well as while serving as Assistant Special Agent in Charge when his mentor, George Merkert, is removed from the position in the aftermath of Gus Fring’s death - and the revelation that Hank was correct all along.

This black bullet proof vest is very similar to the one worn by Hank during the raid of Cap’n Cook’s lab in season one.

Here is a replica I.D. badge that is an exact match to the one worn by Hank as an agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration.​

Hank Schrader is noted to carry an MK18 Mod 0 assault rifle, but if I’m not mistaken, he never actually fires it. Here is an airsoft rifle modeled similarly to the rifle carried by Hank.​

Hank’s watch has been identified as the Casio Men's G2500-3V G-Shock Classic Watch. Unfortunately this watch is currently unavailable. However, a nearly identical model is in-stock (at the moment) over at Amazon.com. Click here to see the similarity between the two.​

Here is an airsoft pistol that is modeled similarly to the standard issued Glock 22 that Hank is known to carry throughout the course of the series.​

Here is a special anniversary edition of Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass,” which is the book that ultimately incriminates Walter White and opens Hank’s eyes to the fact that Walt is indeed Heisenberg.​

​To conclude, we have found that Hank Schrader is surprisingly fun to imitate, and his wardrobe and accessories seem to be readily available for the most part. As always, if there’s anything you think we might have omitted, please do let us know.
