How to Look Like the Right Kind of Gangster

Don’t be a criminal. Steal a criminal’s swagger.

When Goodfellas blazed its way into our lives in 1990, it was a revelation—a gangster film flush with brilliant humor, killer dialogue, and yes, style. Twenty-five years later, we can’t help but admire that sensibility, the pull of those well-tailored basics embodied in these sleek modern-day bomber jackets, polos, and suit trousers, rocked by neighborhood pals who look every bit as sharp and stylish at the end of the night as when they sauntered into the bar. But make no mistake: This is not some retro trip; it’s just how guys roll.
