Fabric for undertaker cosplay??

Im looking for a good fabric to use for a cosplay of undertaker from Kuroshitsuji. Ive gone to a store in search for a good fabric, but im new to this so i dont know. I found broadcloth and batiste, would either of those work or should i try for something else?

Broadcloth would probably work well for the undertake, anything slightly heavy or cotton like would work well. Uniform cloth is also a suggestion but it might be hard to find. I hope this is in some way useful

Along with what Alois said (which is a great suggestion!), maybe look into using funerary fabrics for some of the details? I worked in a funeral home for a few months, so I learned what fabrics are often used in caskets/coffins, and it would be a nice touch to incorporate that into the costume in some fashion. For instance, I could see that grey sash he wears being made from crepe or a similarly textured fabric, as though he wears a piece that didn't get put into a coffin. You generally see crepes, satin, velvet, and similar fabrics used in the funeral business, so there's a variety of options if you're curious.

I agree with both of the other commentors. I think a nice cotton fabric such as broadcloth would work for Undertaker, since it's simple and cheap, so I think it would suit him. (I doubt he's a very rich man, so he wouldn't have clothes made of fancy fabric.) I know linen was (maybe still is?) historically used in the funeral business, so linen for the sash would be fitting in my opinion.
