I was wondering if anyone dressed in the fashions of the 20's, with flapper dresses, or noir style, dark clothing.. Ah how do I explain this... Okay, if anyone has seen Boardwalk empire, that style of clothing. Pinstripe suits, suspenders, fedora's. Nice polished shoes.
I wear it pretty much all the time unless I am at work. Am I the only one? I don't know what to call it, so I usually end up referring to it as Noir Fashion.

I've got a friend that is big into steampunk, but his everyday dress is a lot what yours sounds like. He wears very nice, crisp clothing with suspenders, a hat, and even driving gloves when he goes out. He looks like he could easily have stepped out of the late 1800s to early 1900s. I love fashion from those eras, but I don't get a chance to wear them much just because of where I work and the fact that I don't get to go out much besides work^^

I certainly am a fan of 20s flapper girl look. I try to work certain elements into my wardrobe, like fringe hemlines, loose silhouette, accessories and jewelry.

I dress in a vintage style on a regular basis although it's mostly 1940s as 1920s clothes don't suit me whatsoever. My main hobbey outside geek interests is swing dancing (lindy hop, although I dance authentic solo jazz, blues and charleston too), so we have themed nights a heck of a lot and a popular theme is a speakeasy so a heck of a lot of 20's fashion is on show.

It'll be coming back in because of the new movie of The Great Gatsby.

But read this article (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/the-great-gatsby-still-gets-flappers-wrong/) about who flappers really were and how F. Scott Fitzgerald got them totally wrong. It makes me want to dress up in the style just as a tribute to these women.
