Menswear Wednesday: The Great Gatsby Collection

Fans of Mad Men went crazy for Banana Republic's "Mad Men" collection when it first was released a couple of years ago. With the same idea in mind, Brooks Brother's has taken the style of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby to create a new apparel collection for the upcoming release of the movie (May 10th!!). According to the film's designer, Brooks Brothers is mentioned several times in Fitzgerald's writings throughout the 20th century. A majority of the 500 men's costumes in the film were inspired by images and products from the company's archives (Brooks Brothers was founded in 1818). 

Now, the store has adapted those costumes to create a line for men that is sold both in stores and online.
