(Collierville, Tennessee) A mustached man donning a green sun dress made off with $4,000 from a Collierville, Tennessee bank, but he didn't make the best-dressed list.

Witnesses say the bank robber could have used a little fashion help.

But his get-up was successful in helping him get away.

Police are searching for the man who robbed the bank while wearing the dress and a woman's wig.

"It was a leaf design, but muted," a woman who witnessed the holdup said of the robber's frock.

"He looked a mess," said another witness.

The witnesses said the robber was obviously male, given away by his muscular legs -- and the mustache.

Police Capt. Tommy McCaskill said the robber threatened a teller at a branch bank in a Kroger store in this Memphis suburb but did not show a weapon. No one was hurt.

As the robber fled, he tried to cover the mustache with one hand while grasping what police said was $4,000 in the other.
