Without going into the details of how I acquired one of the two Vicuna coats made for the HBO show Boardwalk Empire, pictured below on Mr. Buscemi, should I keep it or sell it? I even have the tailors instruction sheet showing it was made for BW empire, and all of the details. Honestly it is such an expensive piece that I worry every time I wear it. I own a custom made British Warm from 22oz Camel Hair, a New and Lingwood Covert Coat, and a Black Cashmere Alexander McQueen 3/4 length overcoat. Despite owning these fine coats, I am wearing the vicuna today! So, keep it or sell it?

Oh, I would keep that for sure. What size is it?

That is what the tailor told me. I know what Mr. Scorsese paid for the goods and it is consistent with the tailors claim.

That coat is awesome. Is it a 42??


I might get to wear it twice a year, but that thing is almost worth moving to a colder climate for.

It is a 38S. I am not going to discuss what I paid for it. There is an exact copy of my British Warm in the show also but they copied that from me after hearing me order it. The British Warm is almost too warm.

Good, that means I can't possibly wear it.


Steve is a 38S? They make him look taller on TV, I guess.

It's my size, too! You should definitely sell it to me. Providence is trying to send you (and me!) a message.

Are you trying to take over from Reevolving and Hermes Man to be the most obnoxious guy on the forum?
