Dwight Schrute Costume Guide: How to dress like Dwight Schrute for Halloween and Cosplay



The competence of Dwight Schrute at the beginning of the series The Office is commendable, though he speaks in an intense halting manner in all conversations. His hard work saw him elevated to head the Dunder Mifflin regional branch in the last episode.

Throughout the series, Dwight is depicted as a craving for authority but aresourceful salesman. However,he is ignorant, gullible, and naïve. His desk-mate, and salesman, Jim Halpert, trick him easily.  On the brighter side, he has elegant business attire.

Despite this, he is a beet plantation owner, bed-and-breakfast proprietor at Schrute Farms, and owns the business park that hosts Dunder Mifflin Scranton.

On the other hand, his jackets are somewhat basic. Ideally, they have buttons and are usually single-breasted dual side vent sport coats.
