Gatsby @ Brooks Brothers

The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite books of all time. Normally, I despise film adaptations of my favourite novels, however, I have been more than intrigued my Baz Luhmann’s upcoming take on F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic.

While the actors, the set and the script are of course integral to the film, it is the costumes that I have most been looking forward to. When I heard Miuccia Prada was involved I was beyond excitement and when it recently came to my attention that the American brand Brooks Brothers would be creating the mens suits, I knew they were onto a winner. Brooks Brothers is not often talking about in Britain and that is a shame. Their clothes are timeless, classic, understated and more than appropriate as the designers of Jay Gatsby’s ‘beautiful shirts.’

Luckily for us Brits, these very garments are on display in their Regent Street store and should definitely be taken advantage of before the film hits cinemas later in May! There is even an accompanying special collection of mens clothing to celebrate the designs.

The Brooks Brothers suits will be on show in the Regent Street Store until May 31.
