early 1900's

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 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.

One time on Etsy I came across a shirtwaist pattern from the 1910s and thought, why the hell not, it fits my measurements. It ended up being a better fit than any contemporary pattern I've tried.

Lately I've also been playing around with a dress pattern from 1918. My approach is this: anything designed between 1914 and 1989 (the "short 20th century") is acceptable street wear/"not a costume" since it's not so old that it's completely a costume, but it's not so recent that it just looks unintentionally out of date.

One time someone asked me, "so if you're always wearing mid-20th century clothes now, are you going to be wearing this decade's clothes when you're old?" and my response was, "How dare you suggest such a thing! No, I will never ever change sizes and I'll always wear stuff from the short 20th century. The older I get, the more deliciously absurd it will be!"

I also like to mix multiple decades in one outfit. Punk/New Wave hair with a flapper dress. 1910s shirtwaist blouse with a 1970s maxi skirt. Mod dress with 1980s oversized jewelry. You get the idea.

I'm so doing that when I get old.
