Godfather style

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I love reading about the Mafia. I always thought of John Gotti as nicely dressed, as most the public does. But look at his picutes again I still think he dressed well for a Mobb boss I don't think the attention to his dress was warrented, as it was front page making news in the mid and late 80's.

It would seem that Tom Wolfe is the best dressed person in New York.
