What kind of clothes and hair styles did they have in the early 1900's?

Not to seem harsh but I think google can answer this question.
I will guess the women wear dresses while the men wear a hat.

Take a look at my avatar...
It is Dr. H. H. Holmes, the famed serial killer, who confessed to 27 murders during the time of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The fair's "White City" is said to be used as inspiration in the creation of Columbia.After all, the fair was called "The World's COLUMBIAN Exposition" to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival in the new world.
The book "Devil in the White City" is a historical account of the whole fair and the murders of Holmes, and has also been said to be inspirational to the game. It is a great book, and an interesting bit of history. It would also be fun to see what concepts of turn of the century America Irrational will draw from.
But anyway, the man in my avatar can be representative of the more well-to-do style of dress of the period.

basically a mix between suits and olden wear... looks weird!

That's obviously dressed up...and I don't think that'll be what they use. Elizabeth certainly isn't dressed like that.
Bottom of that page shows you something more likely, better looking.
I think they'll make it more contemporary where needed or for aesthetic appeal. Of if the Stars and Stripes guy is to be believed...plain weird too.
I expect LOTS of mustache.

I know it was deeply modest for ladies to always ware gloves back then, maybe they can put some that logic into the game.
