1920's / Chicago Clothing

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Right, now what the hell is 1920's clothing for a man supposed to be? Or like the clothing from chicago?

Sorry sara, but I have no bloody idea what to wear so have to resort to this.

Any ideas anyone? Or even better, any links to any photos so I can get some ideas?

    They used to wear Fedora hats and pinstripe suits :)

    If you can find a Tommy Gun then that's a certain bonus :p

    I r dont got a hat :(

    I got a pinstripe suit with the pins very close together and alternatinb colours of red and greyish that I usually wear to college that I might wear.

    Or if a blakc suit will do, I might just wear that.

    I got 2 pistols ready though :D

    The zoot suit is associated with the latter Swing era but it would probably look great if you could get one.

    I think a more accurate look would be like the suits in Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal video, but I’m not too sure.

    Anyhow, besides Jackson’s own suit, I think most other clothes in that video are vintage so I guess you may look at clips of that for ideas.

    Even if that isn’t the era you are reaching for, I’d think it would be close enough to not stick out as a weirdo and that style would be easier to achieve than the zoot suit look.

    I was wrong about the Jackson video. While I still believe most of the attire is vintage, they are from the 40’s.

    Twenty years too late.

    Think Bugsy Malone. Then think of Fancy Dress shops.
