Brooks Brothers 'Gatsby Collection' Walks Off Set Into Stores

Brooks Brothers ‘Gatsby Collection’ Walks Off Set Into Stores

Boaters, linen suits, suspenders, batwing bow ties, spectators, a peak lapel tuxedo and Ivy striped everything – Brooks Brothers ‘Gatsby Collection’ appears to have walked off the set of Baz Luhrmann’s Jazz-Age motion picture.

We’ve picked a couple of looks and set shots to show you how close the retail line actually is to Catherine Martin’s designs with the classic men’s clothier.

It’s amazing. We challenge a fan of the book, movie or vintage fashion to not fall head-over-heels for, let’s face it, movie merchandise you can wear forever.

The ‘Gatsby Collection’ mini-site is worth a look for Martin’s notes on the collaboration and impressive sketches and photos from the BB archive. And don’t forget those instore costume exhibits.
