A small detail to add to this would be that American Mafiosi are forbidden from having facial hair. Not really sure why that is, but it's one of the rules.

It differs from family to family. Some respect that rule, even today in the modern age, while some have let go of it in order to prioritize things that matter more. There was even a boss who was quoted saying that rats wear the color red, so he banned the color from the attire of his soldiers. I would have to get a source check on that.

 

The reason for the facial hair rule existing comes from the mob's hay day back in the '60s and '70s. The guys who had facial hair were typically the "off the boat" Sicilian gangsters (zips). The Americans wanted nothing to do with them for the most part, including looking remotely similar to them ie having facial hair.

 

I've also heard that many mobsters associate facial hair (whiskers) with rats, and we all know the mob hates rats.
