Jojo’s Bizare Adventure, often just referred to as “Jojo”, is a long-time series that has acquired dedicated fans since its initial release in January 1987. However, a series like this is truly unique in the sense that its fans have some of the widest variety in age range due to how long the series has been around and how it’s segmented into different parts that each tell different stories but still loosely connect to one another. A very famous protagonist from the second segment is Joseph Joestar, who then makes an appearance in the third segment when he’s older.

So what’s the deal with Joseph Joestar?

A natural hothead, Joseph often found himself in the center of fights growing up and solved a lot of his issues with his fists. He was even imprisoned several times and expelled from school due to his violent behavior. As the second Joestar, he’s a complete and stark contrast to the first Joestar, Jonathan, who was the complete opposite of all of these traits in the first segment, Part One.

By Part Three, Joseph has had a lot of time to mellow out, now accompanying his grandson, Jotaro on his adventure at the wise age of sixty-eight. Now far less aggressive and lazy, Joseph is often seen as kind to his allies and cares about protecting them, even with his goofier side sometimes shining through. Often the one behind numerous pranks, Joseph’s humor certainly never aged with the rest of him. Although sometimes, he’s funny without ever having meant to be. For example: pretending to know how to ride a camel only to make a complete fool of himself once the time came.

Well, it’s no secret that Joseph has quite a few outfits that would be fun to replicate. Since he’s the second most reoccurring Joestar throughout the series, it’s only natural that he has an extensive wardrobe compared to most other characters from anime. However, we’re going to hone in on one of his most infamous outfits.

This outfit is often compared to the notable Indiana Jones and there’s a good chance this outfit is a reference to that. Start with a pair of long brown pants, straight cut and a pair of low top, black and brown shoes to match. Slide on a yellow, buttoned polo with a collar and short sleeves over top. Now add a black leather belt to tie the shirt and pants together before tossing on an old tan, fedora with a dark brown stripe to rest on top of your head. Lastly, a pair of black arm sleeves and of course, the mischievous dog Iggy.
