Black, taupe, and white two-piece tracksuit by Falcon Bay worn by the character Paulie Walnuts portrayed by actor Tony Sirico in HBO's award winning series The Sopranos. Mr. Sirico wore this costume in "The Strong Silent Type" (Season 4, Episode 10) at the end of the episode when Paulie reclines in his den admiring the portrait of Pie-O-My and Tony which he'd rescued from the dumpster and had altered to show Tony in Napoleon garb. Also worn in "Moe N' Joe" (Season 6, Episode 10) during the scene where Paulie talks on the phone with Tony and discusses Bobby Bacala's shooting, and then in a later scene in the back room of the Bada Bing. The costume is in excellent screen worn condition with original production tag attached and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the Golden Closet.
