We all found our own quarantine coping mechanisms.
For some, it was yoga, banana bread, learning German. For others, something more beneficial like homesteading. I had a friend learn coding. The gall.
Me, I finally had the time to get really into the Sopranos. It has bled into my personal life. It has turned me into a New Yorker that grossly romanticises New Jersey. I have been checking out men in gold chains and track suits. I have lurked eBay for knock off Day-Date Presidential Rolexes. I now understand the allure of silken tiger print. My friends find this uncharacteristic so I don’t further explain to them my newfound fondness for boxy Armani suits and the stout men who wear them. But may I remind you of the characters with more style than just pinstripe?
Perhaps I’m twenty years late to the party, but trends come back, and 2001 Versace brocade has aged just as well as the mobsters wearing it.
Below, an appreciation for the Sopranos and the stylists that dressed them, sans spoilers, along with a reinterpretation of what we think the Sopranos & the Bada Bing crew might be seen wearing if the series was shot in the present-day.
