Nucky Thompson Suit

Steve Buscemi, who played Enoch “Nucky” Thompson in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, wore this three-piece suit in the series finale. The suit features a bullet hole where the character was shot. The Nucky Thompson character was inspired by real-life Atlantic City Mob boss Enoch “Nucky” Johnson. Unlike the TV character, Nucky Johnson died of natural causes.
