THE BROOKS BROTHERS FOT THE GREAT GATSBY

The Brooks Brothers have crafted impeccable costumes for Baz Luhmann's epic remake for The Great Gatsby.

Brooks Brothers was founded in New York in the early 19th century and, as such, is one of the greatest legacies in American fashion.

F. Scott Fitzgerald also was a lifelong Brooks Brothers customer and the brands culture undoubtedly had been of some inspiration for Scott as he penned his most popular novel The Great Gatsby in 1925, even more, making the clothier's partnership with the filmmakers ideal.

I've got my hands on a couple of exclusive sketches by costume designer Catherine Martin which give an up-close look at the wardrobes of the movie's leading men: Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and Leonardo Dicaprio as Jay Gatsby.

Also, the American label is not just suiting up the film's stars, but will also launch their very own Brooks Brothers' limited edition Gatsby Collection.

In short, the perfect way to tick off this summer's Twenties trend in style.

This ivory suit, including a $698 jacket, is made from Irish linen with a herringbone pattern. Everything but the cane is also part of the collection.
It's not just suits! This collegiate collar cardigan, $148, would look great styled as is, or worn with a regular t-shirt and jeans.
The 20's began to popularize the preppy style as we know it today. This trimmed navy blazer, $798, modernizes the style.
