What articles of clothing are commonplace among tough guys & streetfighters (in comics)?

What types of things do tough guys and streetfighters typically wear in comics besides fingerless gloves, sweatbands on the head and wrists, scalley caps, other caps, arm bands, jackets, vests, tank tops, sleeveless T-shirts, regular T-shirts, gold chains, brackets, and belts?

Someone had told me, metal gloves, spiked elbow pads, long spike cleats, football shoulder pad-type gears, and sunglasses.

I am designing tough guy/streetfighter characters for my comics - please list as many suggestions as possible. Thank you.

@JGoldman10,
There is no "dress code" for tough guys. In fact, if a person (or cartoon character) is truly tough, he doesn't care what he's wearing because he has no reason to worry about what others think of him.

@Lustig Andrei,
I am talking about people in the street. Or like the tough guys you see on TV shows and in movies. Many tough guys or streetfighters do wear stuff normal people don't wear.

Look at street gangs, for example. Look at the way people like Mr. T, Hulk Hogan or Chuck Norris dresses.

That doesn't answer my question. I am talking about designing tough guy and streetfighter-types and talking about how they look and dress. There is such a thing as street clothes.

Many someone here who is into comics can help me out with this.

@izzythepush,
Sounds like you are describing Launchpad McQuack:

Yes, I used to be a big cartoon geek.

@Lustig Andrei,
I don't want my characters to dress like queers. I am NOT putting gay characters in my comics and giving kids the wrong ideas.

As a Christian I am not putting gays in my comics.

Why are you addressing this to me? I never suggested that you should do so.

@Lustig Andrei,
Okay, NVM then - do you have any suggestions as to what my tough guys can wear? Please help.

Tough guys often wear things that make them look macho or stand out.

As I suggested in another thread, some tough guys wear garrison bets or some other kinds of belts with big thick buckles:

@JGoldman10,
I wear those a lot. Doesn't make me very tough, though.

@Lustig Andrei,
But some people consider belts with big thick buckles very macho:

Either that or studded belts:

Bell hats are still in fashion- they have been around since the '80s:

L.L. Cool J was famous for wearing them:

I recall back in the day people called bell hats "fishermans".
