When Nick Carraway tells Jay Gatsby he can’t repeat the past, the doomed idealist insists “Of course you can!”

That exchange, direct from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, is drawn out for even more dramatic effect in Baz Luhrmann’s new glitz-loaded adaptation, which opened May 10. And how appropriate, as we’re in total agreement withMen's White Two-Button Suit the Gatz: When you see the sartorial splendor of the film, which is set in 1922 New York, you too will want to repeat the past.

“The Great Gatsby” is loaded with the kind of style we love: Double-breasted and three-piece suits, two-tone shoes, all kinds of… Continue>>

Men's Linen & Wool Two-Button SuitWhen it comes to natural fibers, there are really only a handful of options.  But when you blend them together, you create entirely new hybrids that combine the best of both worlds, and the result is often more distinctive—or even more practical—than the more typical purebred varieties.

And at no other time is that more fun than in summer, when all the bright shades that first dawned in spring get amped up even more, and fun fabrics like madras and seersucker take their place in the sun.

Not only does season-specific color sharpen your look, it’s also a budget-conscious… Continue>>

In addition to providing a huge style boost due to their relative rarity, vests are also a terrific layering option in springtime. It’s easy to think of them as a fall/winter item you wear under a tweed sport coat, but during the transitional months you’re not wearing an overcoat, and a vest can give you just the right amount of added warmth.

Especially with business dress or occasions where appropriateness is favored, there are some basic guidelines that are worth following.

As Baz Lurhmann’s adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” rolls into theaters this May, we will likely once again be treated to the immortal line from Fitzgerald’s novel, “The guy wears a god-damn pink suit!”

Men's Paisley Tie

Gatsby’s choice in suiting is meant to reflect his questionable character. But while a pink suit may be too much for even the most daring dresser, these days wearing the color pink is likely to carry positive connotations, showing others you’re stylish, confident, and even comfortable in your masculinity.
