"Silky" Bob strikes the policeman Jimmy Wells as a very dapper, well-dressed man. As he stands there waiting in the doorway of "Big Joe" Brady's restaurant, everything about the guy just oozes money and class. He's wearing a large diamond for a scarf pin, and that must have cost him an absolute fortune. Using such a precious gem for something as simple as a scarf pin indicates that you have money to spare, and plenty of it.
After shooting the breeze with Jimmy for a short while, Bob pulls out a handsome watch, its lids set with small diamonds. Clearly, this is a man who likes his diamonds, and diamonds don't come cheap. As if we didn't already know, Bob has done pretty well for himself, as he confirms to Jimmy.
