Just a quick research question: what brand of cigarettes is the son of a powerful mafia boss likely to smoke? The character in question comes from a family that enjoys flaunting their class as well as their wealth.
I've been to the TV Tropes page on Good Smoking, Evil Smoking and got nothing. This page on cigarette brands/stereotypes has offered a few wildly-differing suggestions, but not really what I'm looking for. Last, but not least, Google indicates that Michael Corleone of The Godfather (the largest source of inspiration for the character) smokes unfiltered Camels. Does that sound right?
A couple more Google searches indicates that Treasurer cigarettes are the priciest in the U.S., but I'm not sure of their connotations.
On that note: anyone know of any high-class eyeglasses brands that would fit the same character?
