Castiel’s clothing style is pretty obvious – a trench coat and two piece suit. Almost the exact opposite of Sam and Dean, Castiel’s clothing doesn't change much throughout Supernatural.

Clothing Purchasing Guide

We recommend:

Trench Coat, Suit, & Shirt

Boots, Belt, & Ties

Castiel's style overview:

  • Khaki full length & hip length trench coat
  • Charcoal gray suit & black suit
  • Solid blue and blue/white striped tie
  • Black Blundstone slip-on boots

Castiel's Wardrobe Tag

Luckily for me (and everyone else who’s interested in what clothes Cas wears), one of the costume designers from Supernatural tweeted out a picture of Castiel’s wardrobe tag from season six, episode 22.

​The Angelic Trench Coat

Castiel’s original trench coat was made by Stafford and sold by JC Penney.

Don’t get your hopes too high though, just like with a lot of Sam and Dean’s clothes, Cas’ trench coat isn’t sold anymore.

​You've still got a few options though:

Interested in the last option? I found two trench coats on Amazon that look pretty close I think.

This classic trench coat is probably the safest one to buy, it looks the closest to Castiel’s out of the two I found.

If you’re not too worried about being as screen accurate as possible, I really like this modern-looking full-length trench coat.

Castiel's Suit

In case you didn’t read the wardrobe tag up above, Castiel’s suit is a charcoal gray two piece with a three button jacket. As usual, the exact suit isn’t sold anymore. But thankfully you hardly ever see Cas just wearing the suit (without his trench coat), so you can get away with a lot here.

​Personally, I’d probably go to a local brick and mortar store like JC Penney to find and try on a suit for a Castiel costume. But if you’re comfortable buying it online and know your measurements, Amazon has an awesome selection.

My personal favorite after doing some searching is this charcoal gray, three button, two piece suit. If that’s not your taste, I’m sure you can find something on Amazon’s site, that was just the suit I liked the most.

Cas' Boots, Belt, Dress Shirt & Tie

Thankfully Castiel’s boots are still sold brand new.

These black Blundstone slip on boots are still sold on Amazon. The wardrobe tag doesn’t give the exact model of Blundstones that he wears, but just by comparing screen captures with these boots, they look identical to me.

The wardrobe tag’s description of Castiel’s boots and the look and description of the Amazon page for these boots also seem identical, so it’s a safe bet they’re the same exact boots.

Belt

​If you don’t already own a black dress belt with a silver buckle, this Nautica dress belt would fit perfectly (and it’s reversible too!).

Dress Shirt & Tie

I’m not sure if Cas’ exact tie and dress shirt are still made, but this dark blue tie by Dan Smith is pretty close to the same one he wears. And this dress shirt from Calvin Klein would work well too.​

Cas' New Look

In the newer seasons, Castiel’s clothing has changed just a bit. Instead of a full length trench coat, he now wears a hip length trench coat. His suit has also changed a bit too, it’s black now instead of charcoal grey.

​Unlike his original clothing, I wasn’t able to find anything official about what brand his new clothes are. As far as his suit goes, you can go with the same one I recommended before, but just go with black instead.

As for Cas’ new trench coat, this BSGD hip length trench coat looks pretty close.​

If you find a better match, please share it with everyone in the comments below.

​Last we have Cas’ new tie, which is now a blue and white striped tie instead of a solid blue. I found a couple of really close matches, the first being this Retreez blue and white striped tie, and the second is this Baxbo blue and white striped tie.

Even with all of the details about Cas’ costume, it’s still difficult (and sometimes impossible) to find the exact clothing worn on Supernatural.​

​To be completely honest, I was a bit disappointed I wasn’t able to find more trench coats that matched Castiel’s…but at least we got exact matches on his shoes.

    Yeah, that trench coat looks like it would make a pretty awesome Cas cosplay. I feel like I’ve seen similar (maybe the same?) jackets on female Cas cosplays on Pinterest.

I think I found out what coat Misha wears on Supernatural. A Hugo Boss trench coat. It’s a modern, hip-length coat with 4 buttons. And no sleeve cuff things like his first coat had. They’re a little pricy on eBay, but they are on there for anyone who has deep pockets.

Not sure if anyone’s still interested, but RiverIsland has what appears to be an excellent coat for Castiels earlier appearances – It’s actually full length which can be harder to find in a new retail-bought coat these days. You have to ignore the epaulettes though.

Do you think you could do a guide on how to dress like Gabriel? If you can, thanks.

    Hi Ashley, thanks for the request. I’ve never thought about a guide on Gabriel, but I would love to do one 🙂

    In a month or two I’m planning on revamping the site, updating articles, and adding new articles. Crowley was the big one I was planning on doing since he gets requested a lot, but I’m definitely adding Gabriel to the list, he’s one of my favorite characters.
