JAMES GANDOLFINI IS TONY
The Sopranos is widely considered to be the best TV show of all time, transforming the fiction industry landscape forever. This crime drama television series created by David Chase and HBO proved audiences in their living room were smarter than they would ever been given credit for. Hollywood and film business got shocked realizing how a non top cast could reach such a good success.
The series chronicles a dysfunctional, suburban American immigrant family in bold relief. Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) tries to balance the conflicting requirements of his home life and his criminal organization in New Jersey. An additional perspective is conveyed by the intimate conversations Tony has with this psychotherapist, a way to stitch everything and let you get inside Tony´s head.
Of course, costume plays an important role in this mobster series. Tony and the rest of the crew mixes the ‘formal wear’ (oh! those flash ties…) with a so cheesy and retro italian casual style. See the fantastic array of shirts (hawaiians, two tones, crazy checks…), the printed polos and the tracksuits they wear. But vest and bathrobe may be one of the most familiar items of clothing in the gangster´s wardrobe. It was clear to Boxer Union one of our first models should be named after a gangster boss. THE TONY is a clear green small geometrical print boxer you can still find in our online store and authorized dealers.
