1920’s Style – The Great Gatsby
Who wouldn’t want to embrace the Elegance, the glamour and the feel of the ambitious male in the 1920’s? We’re going to observe the wardrobe, the tailored-to-perfection tuxedo and the vintage attire of the magnificent film – The Great Gatsby!
All ladies want to bring back some vintage class at Gatsby is the ultimate dandy. His closet is bigger than most New York City apartments and he has dinner suits to die for! A classically styled tuxedo has peak lapels, piped pockets, a single button and no vents. Gatsby’s on the other hand has three buttons, side vents, flapped pockets and gauntlet cuffs (a very tasteful touch if we say so ourselves and not traditional to a tuxedo).
The Pink Suit
A pink suit is not the only way to channel Gatsby and it’s an intimidating and challenging colour to most men. Although worn as separates it can work to give you that whiff of someone who always summers in the Hamptons. Take the jacket and wear it with chinos or white jeans. Or take the trousers and pair it with an unlined double-breasted navy blazer.
Prohibition Power Suit
Tom Buchanan is everything Gatsby wants to be. He’s a true Blue Blood, coming from an old money East Coast family. The bottom line is that Tom Buchanan possesses money and power in abundance and he dresses the part. With his double breasted, peak lapel, blue wool suit and his matching blue vest (double breasted and fitted very high up exposing only the knot of this maroon and black striped tie). His suit has to large patch pockets on the front and an angled slit breast pocket with a maroon and gold stars pocket square. Tom’s dress shirt is a light blue pointed collar French cuff dress shirt with gold square cuff links. He looks extra gangster with large dark and round Aviator style sun glasses and he’s most definitely the man everyone wants to hate.
