Complete costume worn by the character Tony Soprano portrayed by actor James Gandolfini in HBO's award winning series The Sopranos. The outfit consists of a gray and navy houndstooth sportscoat by Camelia's, a blue long sleeve dress shirt by Modena, a pair of navy pleated dress pants by Zanella, a black, blue, and silver abstract pattern tie by Platinum Designs, and a pair of black leather dress shoes by Allen Edmonds. Mr. Gandolfini wore the costume in "The Second Coming" (Season 6 Part II, Episode 7) during the climactic sequence at the Soprano home where Tony returns home from work at Carmela's request and discovers A.J. trapped in the pool and crying for help after a botched suicide attempt. Jacket has an interior label sewn inside that reads "Exclusively Tailored for Tony Soprano". All the garments are in excellent screen used condition and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity issued by James Gandolfini.
