Lost Coat?

The King of Collecting has to be Mike Ballard!

Mike Ballard, you could argue, is an artist who is either contemptible, or brave, or both. In October he opened an exhibition – Whose Coat Is That Jacket You're Wearing? – consisting of 200-odd coats (or jackets) that Ballard has stolen in a decade-long kleptomaniac spree kicked off, he says, by his own favourite coat being nicked from a pub shortly after he came to live in London.
