My style of menswear is very historical in inspiration. Jack Clayton’s 1974 film version of Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’, is a perfect insight into fashion during the 1920’s. The costumes (designed by Ralph Lauren) are wonderful and really bring the story to life. The book (and film) is an absolute classic. If you never read it in high school, I definitely recommended sitting down with a cup of tea and emmerse yourself in the engaging world of Gatsby. If it all seems like too much, do not fret, the Baz Luhrmann version of The Great Gatsby will be out in 2012. I hope it’s worth the wait!
