Brooks Brothers and Gatsby: A Roaring Good Time

It was perhaps inevitable that Brooks Brothers, the arbiter of classic all-American-prep, should cherry-pick “The Great American Novel” as it’s springwear-collab inspiration (not to mention the upcoming movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio) . The Spiffy collaboration stays true to Gatsby’s dapper feel with straw boating hats, impeccably tailored single-breasted suits in summery colors that exude high-society genteel and smart button down shirts. The collection also emphasizes the vintage Art-Deco roots of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s magnum opus with suspenders, preppy shawl collar cardigan, sharp shoes (oxfords, loafers and wingtips), bow-ties, pocket squares and even stylish canes.With more white slacks  than an episode of Miami Vice- and a pale pink suit to boot!- and a posh tuxedo fit for one of Gatsby’s grandiose parties…

“It makes me sad because I’ve never seen such—such beautiful shirts before.” 
― Daisy Buchanan, The Great Gatsby
