There’s no doubt that Father Ted was one of the finest comedies to come out of the 90s. For this post, I’m going to show you how to put together a Father Ted Crilly outfit. He was, of course, played by the late Dermot Morgan.

In the series, Crilly rarely wore a full priest robe and was often dressed in a dark suit with the collar and shirt worn underneath. So, if you have a dark grey or black suit then you’re already halfway to completing your look! If not, then this black suit by You Look Ugly Today (charming name!) is the cheapest I could find for fancy dress purposes.

Buying an authentic priest shirt and collar is pretty expensive (around £30). However, thankfully, a fancy dress version is available from Bristol Novelties on Amazon for less than a third of the price.
