petermetro, of course we all love brand new expensive suits but how many working class people in chicago in the 1920s would have been wearing brand new finely tailored super 120s suits everyday? have you seen the film? do you know who elliot ness was in real life? i know it was commonplace for men to wear suits in those days, even poor men, but not suits like those. i think armani really blew it there.
I think you're missing my point. I have seen the movie, I do know who Elliot Ness was, and no, I doubt many working class people wore such fancy suits. Again, I'm not suggesting the movie deserves awards for realism in wardrobe. I'm just saying the clothes looked great.
