Top Gun Costumes Collage

By Mark Nobes and Hannah Johnson

On this page you'll find a wide range of Top Gun outfits and accessories to suit all budgets for both men and women. The 1986 movie, of course, starred Tom Cruise as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, and you can create his look using a fighter pilot jumpsuit or a flight jacket with patches. Add a pair of gold-framed, black lens aviator sunglasses and U.S. style military dog tags (name tags). Military boots are optional, but will give a more masculine look. Why not become other characters in the movie, such as "Iceman" and "Goose" or Charlotte "Charlie" Blackwood.

The most popular Top Gun costume is based on the fighter pilot jumpsuit, but you create an alternative look using a faux leather bomber jacket and 80s style pilot aviator shades, or even become a Captain.

Most Popular Top Gun Costume for Men

The most popular Top Gun costume for men chosen by Simply Eighties visitors is this Smiffys fighter pilot jumpsuit, shown here. It represents great value, and includes the aviator sunglasses and optional U.S. dog tags. Three adult sizes are available; medium, large and extra large for 38" to 48" chest.

In terms of styling, customer feedback and overall value, this is definitely an excellent choice.

Best Top Gun Pilot Jumpsuit for Women

If you "feel the need... the need for speed", then become a fighter pilot with this Widmann jumpsuit costume for ladies. Includes a khaki coloured jumpsuit with a Top Gun badge, chest pocket and trouser leg pocket. Please note that the helmet and aviator shades are not included.

Overall, a decent-looking costume and nicely priced.

Best Maverick Flight Jacket

Tom Cruise's "Maverick" character actually wore two jackets in the 80s Top Gun movie, a dark brown leather bomber jacket and a green nylon bomber/flight jacket. The latter of the two is more budget-friendly. We recommened the following jackets...

How to create a low-cost Top Gun outfit

If you don't want to fork out the cash for an official costume, then you can create a similar and cost-effective look using non-official alternatives. We've picked out the cheapest items which will allow you to create a cheap Top Gun fighter pilot jumpsuit costume using a non-official flight suit/overalls for a lower price than the official costume, with low priced accessories.

The main basis of your costume will be a low-cost, military green aviator jumpsuit by Grey Look, which is less than half the price of the cheapest official costume. Now you can add as many or as few accessories as you please. We recommend adding low-cost aviator shades and stainless steel military dog tags to complete your look. This is the best value costume we have seen and is available in a standard or X-Large size.

Wear with a plain white T-shirt, just like Tom Cruise!
