1920s Gangster Costumes
A classic gangster costume is based on the outfits that were worn by gangsters in America during the 1920ís and 1930ís. At that time alcohol was banned and organized crime profited by the distribution and sale of illegal liquor. These gangsters wore dark suits (often with pin stripes), fedora hats, ties and dress shoes. Gangster costumes can be put together using these elements plus perhaps a toy machine gun or a violin case (where a gangster can hide their machine gun).
