The Great Gatsby meets Brooks Brothers

By: Jenny Fulton
Oscar award winning costume designer, Catherine Martin who designed for the highly anticipated film based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, partnered with Brooks Brothers to create a limited-edition line of men’s clothing inspired by the costumes in the film.  Out this month, The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrman, has clothing inspired by the roaring ‘20s, in which the novel and movie are set, and so the line of menswear will have a dapper Gatsby feel to each and every piece.
This limited collection has The Great Gatsby logo sewn into the tag of each garment.  Each leading male in the novel has his signature piece featured in the collection.   “Brooks Brothers is mentioned numerous times in Fitzgerald’s writings as a representation of the ultimate gentleman’s purveyor of fine clothing to the American man of distinction…It is this most basic and fundamental connection that has made our collaboration so authentic,” Catherine Martin said in a release.
This specific partnering is one of the best collaborations the movie industry has seen in a while because it makes sense.  Brooks Brothers is known for the All-American preppy-polo look and elegant style.  Let’s just say this exclusive line of clothing for men will give Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy, Lord Scot Disick, extra clothing to add to his already stellar wardrobe.
