If you have ever read The Great Gatsby, or seen the trailer to the upcoming movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, then you know the wealthy gentlemen in the movie are extremely dapper.
Their well-tailored suits and impeccable accessories are a character all their own, and it was just announced that Brooks Brothers are the ones responsible for it all.

Brooks Brothers, America’s oldest apparel retailer, has collaborated with two-time Academy Award–winning costume and production designer Catherine Martin to produce more than 500 evening and day ensembles as costumes for the male principal and background casts.
“Fitzgerald was a Brooks Brothers customer. It is this most basic and fundamental connection that has made our collaboration so authentic. 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,” stated Catherine Martin.
It's not often there's such attention to menswear detail featured in a movie, but they had to do right by the iconic Great Gatsby and the book's author F. Scott Fitzgerald.
