While Harpo Marx built a career on being speechless, we're at no loss of words when it comes to describing "Harpo Bear." Sparkling eyes with hand-sewn lids, human lashes, and a sculpted nose capture the silent, expressive humor of Harpo's face. He wears an authentic style, fully-lined trench coat of khaki gabardine with epaulets on the shoulders, topstitching in the back, a real kick-pleat and tortoise shell buttons. His off-white chino slacks are detailed with side and back pockets and even a fly opening. A handmade cowhide belt with a gold buckle holds them up. Harpo's shirt is hand-painted with blue polka-dots and his handmade necktie is decorated with big blocks of bright colors. Free-standing in brown leather loafers, a curly blond wig and signature ribbon-trimmed black felt hat bring the costume to a comedic whole.
