Perhaps a hook in the wig
I know you can get the leggings at american apparel but I think they're like $50 and I dunno if they'd fit a dude.
also a bottle of Baileys is necessary.

LOVE old Greg!

I know this topic is from last Halloween, but in Sainsburys (not Shamansburys, calm down now!) they're actually selling Baileys (well ok irish creme) in a plastic shoe for 4 in the Xmas section!!! 

I shall be buying one as my fella is determined to dress as Old Gregg for our Halloween party on Friday Grin  I  think he's going to spend the whole night asking people that, and if they wanna go to a club where people wee on each other, ha ha ha that always cracks me up!

that jacket will be easy to reconstruct to look more like the old gregg jacket!

i cant really see the collar, but it looks pretty traditional, if you just fold it in half towards the inside and stitch it to hold in place [or if you dont like to sew, since i noticed you mentioned something about not sewing... you could use that iron hem tape], then like it was said above me somewhere, have him put it on inside out and pin/stitch it to fit better [or again, with the avoiding the sewing you could even use a crapton of safety pins down the sides to do the same thing esp if he wants to keep the jacket as a "normal" fitting one], then again with the hem tape [or actual sewing] shorten the jacket to waist length.

and id spray it down with a clear coat, cause old gregg's jacket is shiiiny Smiley

the headpiece looks awesome tho!

Let's be spies...

and wear interesting hats!
