Brooks Brothers Has Launched a ‘Great Gatsby’ Collection
Because one mind-blowing Great Gatsby announcement isn’t enough, it’s just been revealed that Brooks Brothers has been tapped to launch a collection inspired by the film. Given that authord F. Scott Fitzgerald was a hardcore fan of BB and even mentioned the suit-happy brand in his books, costume designer Catherine Martin knew that there was no better match for a limited-edition capsule.
WWD has the scoop on the collab, noting that "top sellers so far include a black bowtie with white tipping — a Brooks Brothers archival piece that Martin discovered and brought to the retailer; it’s also the tie worn by DiCaprio in the poster of the film; a bottle green cotton cardigan with burgundy and white trim, and a white linen herringbone peak-lapel suit with a contrasting brown vest."

While the collection is totally dapper and taps into that whole retro vibe that peeps have been feeling since Mad Men hit the tube, where can men wear these head-to-toe pieces without looking like a
douche dude stuck in a timewarp? Either way, yay for Gatsby things!
