Black leather jacket by Remy, taupe long sleeve knit shirt by Cutter and Buck, and black pleated pants by Dockers worn by the character Tony Soprano portrayed by actor James Gandolfini in HBO's award winning series The Sopranos. Mr. Gandolfini wore the costume in "The Blue Comet" (Season 6 Part II, Episode 8) when Tony races home after learning of the shootout in the parking lot of Bada Bing that injured Silvio and also of the assasination of Bobby at the hands of Phil's men. Tony also appears wearing the costume in the closing scene where he goes to sleep clutching the AR-15 machine gun that Bobby had given him as a birthday present. All the garments are in excellent screen worn condition and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity issued by James Gandolfini.
