In case you hadn’t noticed The Great Gatsby is back in the cinemas again with Leonardo Di Caprio playing the doomed title role alongside his Daily Buchanan, in this instance Carey Mulligan.
Given that the director is Baz Luhrmann of Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet fame the film is not surprisingly rather stylised with much of the fashions that featured in the original 1974 Robert Redford movie cranked up to the max.
Fortunately the 1920s wasn’t a bad look for men, so with that in mind you if you do fancy pretending that you are the king of Long Island here is a jacket and few accessories to help you achieve that look.
Incidentally The Great Gatsby sold very poorly when it was first released. It wasn’t until after Fitzgerald’s death – at the insanely young age of 44 – that soldiers returning from World War two began to read the novel, and not until the 50s when it was first acclaimed an American classic.
