Soprano clothes fetch thousands


Some of the iconic outfits that went under the hammer

Clothes worn by fictional TV mob boss Tony Soprano have sold for $187,750 (95,464) at a charity auction at Christie's in New York.

A bloody outfit worn when he was shot by Uncle Junior in The Sopranos was the top lot fetching $43,750 (22,245).

An outfit including his striped short robe fetched $21,250 (10,805).

The 25 lots were sold off by actor James Gandolfini, who played Soprano for six seasons, to raise money for a charity that helps wounded US troops.

The bloody outfit consisted of a black and beige polo shirt, a white tank top and black trousers.

Other top sellers included another robe, with an "S" insignia on the breast pocket, which went for $13,750 (6,991).

A blue shirt worn by Tony Soprano in the show's opening titles fetched the same amount.

Gandolfini was at the auction along with a soldier from the Wounded Warrior charity.
