Some of the best dressed people of our time came from a time, when being a GANGSTER was not only a way of life but a Statement… In both Fashion and Power..

Exotic perfumes filled the air of social clubs and dance halls.. One man that stands out is Frank Costello, shown bellow at the Kefauver Hearings..
