What came first, Boardwalk Empire or Dwight Yorke?

We understand that Boardwalk Empire, which is due for a second season very soon, is on the inspiration list for more than a few designers this season. But we'd like to contest the idea that the HBO series should take all the credit.

Yes, the cast of BE do a great line in saddle shoes but can they match Yorke's knack for suits that look like they've been dipped in polish, eye-catching ties and dazzling array of mismatched patterns? We thought not. Don't let them steal the style icon title that's rightfully yours Dwight. Failing that, he can always aim for a cameo in season three.

In order to hide his Polio from the public, Franklin D. Roosevelt arrived in New York via a secret extension of Grand Central Terminal underneath the Waldorf Astoria hotel.
