More Bow Ties From Boardwalk Empire

The bow ties in this HBO series are amazing but the sheer quantity you see - from bell hops, to people in the second  row of a midday boxing fight - seems a little far fetched. It would be very interesting to see historical references to that period in Atlantic City, Chicago and NYC to see how true to the period this would be. Did black bootleggers wear bow ties? Did young 22 year old budding gangsters like Arnold Rothstein wear bow ties? Don't get me wrong, I love what Boardwalk is doing for bow ties. I would just like to know if it's historically correct. I will do some research.
