“National Treasure” Justin Bartha as Riley Poole Suit Jacket & Pants Costume (Backlot Props)
National Treasure is a 2004 American adventure heist film produced and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It is the first film in the National Treasure franchise and stars Nicolas Cage, Harvey Keitel, Jon Voight, Diane Kruger, Sean Bean, Justin Bartha and Christopher Plummer.
Cage plays Benjamin Franklin Gates, a historian and amateur cryptologist searching for a lost treasure of precious metals, jewelry, artwork and other artifacts that was accumulated into a single massive stockpile by looters and warriors over many millennia starting in Ancient Egypt, later rediscovered by warriors who form themselves into the Knights Templar to protect the treasure, eventually hidden by American Freemasons during the American Revolutionary War. A coded map on the back of the Declaration of Independence points to the location of the “national treasure,”but Gates is not alone in his quest. Whoever can steal the Declaration and decode it first will find the greatest treasure in history.
This suit was worn by Justin Bartha as Riley Pool in one of the”National Treasure'” films. According to the studio tagging, it was used for re-shoots of a scene that involved him in a Mercedes with a laptop. The costume consists of a custom-made, navy blue corduroy suit jacket and a pair of matching trousers with a hook and zip closure. Both pieces displays no marked size and are in very good condition.

The company liquidated their assets in 2010 and these were part of the acquisition of tens of thousands of original costumes and props. These are now available for the first time publicly.
