The Great Depression had Bonnie and Clyde. This not-quite-great depression of modern times has the gentleman to the right. Yup, a cheap knockoff. I think that's a trilby he's wearing, which would have looked better on Clyde Barrow, circa 1933.
From the Boynton Beach Police:
Boynton Beach Police and the FBI are investigating an armed robbery this afternoon to a Bank of America branch at 105 N. Congress Ave.

The robber, who was wearing a pinstripe suit and pinstripe fedora (Editor's note: I think it's a trilby; fedoras have a wider brim than this hat)
walked into the bank at 12:21 p.m., handed the teller a note and
displayed a silver and black handgun. He took off with an undisclosed
amount of cash.
Once outside the bank, he removed the suit jacket and
pants and fled in jeans and a white T-shirt. He was seen leaving in a
white older-model vehicle, possibly a Ford. He is described as a white
male in his late teens, early 20s; at least 5-foot-8, slim build and
acne or freckles on his face. No one was injured during the robbery.
Anyone who recognizes this man is urged to call Detective Juan Montoya
at 561-716-3284, 1st Sgt. Paul Sheridan at 561-742-6133 or Crime
Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS. Anonymous tips can also
