Looking for a 20’s men costume and suit? Need a roaring 20’s costume to attend a cocktail party, an Halloween party or a wedding with a Roaring Twenties theme? Do you want to look like a Peaky Blinder? Here’s our guide to a successful Gatsby-style outfit, with a perfect costume choice.
Whether you chose a gangster or a gentleman’s suit, this set of male’s clothing is always composed of the following elements: pants, long-sleeved shirt, suit jacket and vest. The vest was used to hide the suspenders worn over the shirt.
In the 1920s, the suit is worn fairly close to the body. The jacket is quite long (below the buttocks), the pants also, and is rather wide. It falls on the shoes.
Beige and white suits were reserved for garden parties, cocktail parties and other casual afternoons, while in the evening, a black or dark tuxedo was more chic!
