Every year come the beginning of October the invitations to Halloween parties start pouring in, and I don't know about you but I find adult Halloween parties more trouble then they are worth. Inevitably though, I find myself getting dragged to them by friends or a significant other and the last minute scramble to find a decent Halloween Costume begins. By decent, I mean a costume that is simple, comfortable and doesn't make me pour sweat the whole night.
The tough part is finding a cool, easy mens halloween costume without being the guy who just came holding a baseball bat or put on some medical scrubs, no one wants to be the guy who showed zero effort. That's why we have compiled the following best Halloween looks for men who just want have a few drinks and meet some people without being uncomfortable all night.
