When the world was struggling after the stock market crash, fashion — especially for men — was at its finest. 1930s men’s costumes can be classic representations of Old Hollywood film stars or nods to urban gangsters like Clyde Barrow getting away with a bank heist (or perhaps serving time in prison!). 1930s movies were obsessed with crime life, mobsters, and the mafia. Then there was Popeye and Dick Tracy, who made an entrance in the ’30s along with all the classic Halloween movies: The Mummy, Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde, Frankenstein, and Dracula. All of these make great black and white men’s 1930s Halloween costumes.
