|Jim Saville Costume|
The official licensed Jimmy Saville costume is created by one of the biggest costume suppliers in the UK and Europe. The license is currently owned by Smiffy's of Gainsborough, who have designed and supplied the outfit to all of the online retailers and fancy dress shops that you will find the Jimmy Saville fancy dress costume in today. Which isn't many.
This is the only officially endorsed and licensed costume, and since the most recent news upon Jimmy's little know activities, the license has recently been dropped by Smiffy's and the costume will ceased being produced as of October 2012. If you are planning on dressing as Jimbo for Halloween 2012 you will want to act quick, as he is sure to be one of the most popular topical characters of the season. I fully expect the official Jimmy Saville fancy dress outfit to be extinct by November. Just like Jim. Sold on the Jim Saville costume already? You can buy the outfit in the UK while stock remains.
The Jimmy Saville costume comes complete with his trademark red string vest as featured in many pictures and as seen on television. It is sleeveless, boasts a generous hole to thrust your neck through and looks not too dissimilar to that which sir Jimmy would have actually worn.

We also have a replica two-tone shiny long-sleeve jacket with a functioning zipper to the front, elasticated band around the base at the hemline, elasticised cuffs and collar. There are non-functional pockets at the front of the jacket with zippers. The jacket comes with two embroidered patches on. To the right side of the chest is a cartoon characterture of sir Jimmy with a giant cigar emanating from his lips and on the other side, an appropriate red logo saying 'serious fun' and if one thing is for sure, sir Jimmy was definitely about serious fun.
Also included with the Jimmy Saville fancy dress costume, we've are a pair of matching burnished trousers with an elasticised waistline with enough room around the crotch for movement. After-all, they can't be too a tight a fit can they? This is good if you plan to stuff something down the front. Namely, a vegetable, piece of cardboard or something else far more distateful, if that's what you're going for.
The combination looks superb and in appearance is remarkable in comparioson, it really does pass for looking just like sir Jimmy's most popular and well known costume.
The Jimmy Saville costume is hotly tipped to be the most popular bad taste Halloween costume 2012, just make sure that you get yours before they are all gone.
Jimmy Saville Fancy Dress Sizing
The costume comes in one size:
- The jacket will fit up to about a 42” chest
- The waist will fit up to about a 36” waist
- The inside leg will fit up to a 32” inside leg
These sizes will fit the above measurement and those below comfortably.
I think you should definitely consider getting yourself a white wig, round lennon specs and a cigar to complete the costume and personalise it a little more. Each item is available separately and is relatively inexpensive.
