Mary Zophres is the Costume Designer on this movie and responsible in part for establishing the feel and mood of the period crime drama, including choosing appropriate attire for Sean Penn to wear as a successful, high-profile underworld figure in 1940's Los Angeles. His Mickey Cohen outfit consists of a tailored overcoat, a conventional, yet expensive wool suit and some flashy two-tone wing-tip shoes.
