These costumes used to evoke 1940's and 50's L.A. were designed by Mary Zophres.

The wool suits were worn by Ryan Gosling as 'Sgt. Jerry Wooters' and Josh Brolin as 'Sgt. John O'Mara' were designed to look less expensive and flashy than Sean Penn's Mickey Cohen gangster costume, as both actors played LAPD law enforcement officers on modest salaries.
