Either a tuxedo, a gangster suit (pin stripped)  or rent The Great Gatsby for ideas.
it wouldn't really be a "costume"

I would have to agree with the gangster idea.  Don't forget the awesome hat (I don't know what they are called...kinda old time news-ish, I'm sure you know more than I do), and maybe have him bring around a sax case (for the tommy gun of course) or else just a cheap plastic tommy gun (or whatever you can find).  I'll see what else there is to think of...daydreaming in the 20s

Last Halloween my boyfriend and I were a couple from the 20's.  He wore nickers (the knee length pants) with long argyle socks.  He also wore a newsboy cap 'cause he was a dead golfer.
For just a theme party a nice suit would be great w/ a flower in the lapel or a hankie in the front pocket.  A fedora could really make the look.  Back then the men slicked their hair back and didn't have sideburns.  They were also very clean shaven if they were young men.  Back then they also had the penguin tuxedos w/ white bowties and top hats.  You might find some nice images if you google 'slient film actors'.
