How to Dress Like Danny Rand

Danny Rand is the son of the late Wendell Rand and rightful heir to Rand Enterprises. Danny was orphaned at a young age when he lost both parents in a plane crash.

Somehow he managed to survive when he was taken in by the monks of K’un-Lun, a mystical city hidden within the Himalayan mountains, which can only be accessed every ten years.​

During his time in K’un-Lun, Danny was trained in the ancient styles of Kung-Fu and claimed the power of Shou-Lao The Undying, granting him The Iron Fist.​

The Jackets of Danny Rand

Iron Fist Danny Rand gray and black striped hoodie shirt

Danny Rand has been noted to wear several different styles of jacket throughout his appearances on Netflix’s Iron Fist.

​For example, he is known to wear blazers and sport coats in black and gray, as well a black zip-up hoodie and even a light gray bathrobe.

Danny’s sense of style is basically non-existent when he is first introduced as you seen him in what amount to dirty rags and walking barefoot in New York City. He does later adopt a more professional appearance after being mistaken for a homeless man multiple times.​

Here is a charcoal blazer by Haggar that is a great match to the style of Danny Rand.​

This black zip-up hoodie by H2H is another nearly identical match to the style of jacket that Danny has been noted to wear on Iron Fist.​

Here is a gray cotton bathrobe that is nearly identical to the one Danny wears.​

What Shirts does Danny Rand Wear

Out of all of the articles of clothing Danny Rand has been noted to make use of, his shirts are arguably some of the most varied in his wardrobe.​

Danny wears many different styles of shirt including: button down dress shirts, fleece hoodies, woven polyester hooded shirts, military style button downs, sweater vests, and simple tank-tops.​

This casual, white, button-down dress shirt by Paul Jones is nearly identical to the style of shirt that Danny Rand wears frequently on Iron Fist.​

I found this DC men’s sweatshirt that is very similar to the three stripe fleece top that has been identified to have been worn by Danny. Click here to compare the similarity.​

Pants & Footwear Worn by The Iron Fist

According to costume designer Stephanie Maslansky, many of the pants worn by Danny Rand on Netflix’s Iron Fist are either completely custom or have been modified with spandex in the crotch to prevent degradation of the fabric during action sequences.

​Having said that, we still managed to find several matches to the pants worn by Danny Rand.

These gray slacks by Calvin Klein are a perfect match to the fancy dress pants that Danny wears around the offices of Rand Enterprises.​

Here is a set of men’s sweatpants in charcoal gray color that are a great match to the ones Danny wears.

​These slim-fit blue jeans by Levi’s are a perfect match to the leg wear exhibited by Danny Rand, Iron Fist.

Danny Rand's Kung-Fu Kicks

Danny has been noted to wear a handful of different styles of footwear including: walking barefoot, solid white sneakers, Vans sneakers, and even Tabi socks (asian inspired socks designed to be worn with sandals).

​Some of Danny’s favorite footwear has been identified as Vans Atwood sneakers. His appear to be olive or gray in color.

These Vans Atwood sneakers are identical to the ones worn by Danny Rand frequently on Netflix’s Iron Fist.​

Here is a very interesting set of Tabi socks by Vigo that are another perfect match to the footwear of Mr. Rand.​

Accessories Used by The Iron Fist

While he mostly relies on his own cunning and fighting spirit, Danny Rand has been noted to make use of at least a few different accessories during his time on Netflix’s Iron Fist.

​It is worth noting however that none of these are used for combat, as he relies heavily on the power of The Iron Fist. Which can only be summoned when his Chi is perfectly aligned.

This bamboo practice sword is a perfect match to the one used by Danny Rand to discipline Colleen’s rowdy martial arts class.​

Here is a Chinese opera inspired monkey mask that is very similar to the one worn by Danny while being pursued after leaving Colleen’s dojo.​

Here is a monk’s robe that is similar in style to the one that Danny has been noted to exhibit on Iron Fist. It is worth noting however that it would require dying and possibly other customization to make it a perfect match.

In conclusion, I found that Danny Rand has some of the most unique and interesting articles of clothing within his wardrobe of any character that we’ve covered thus far. It was also a pleasant surprise to find that a fair amount of name brand items within his wardrobe were easily identifiable.
