I admit it. I did not read The Great Gatsby the first time around…you know, in 9th or 10th grade English class? No idea why – its a pretty quick read and I have always been able to quickly knock back a good book. And, it is truly a good book! I finally read it a few years back after I read The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian – another amazing book that seamlessly integrated the history of East Egg and West Egg into a modern day narrative.
Meow, right? Why don’t men dress more like this today? It’s almost rare to actually see a man in a full suit – let alone one as debonair as a linen suit like this!
As you know by now, I work for a menswear company, Direct Menswear, that specializes in offering stylish suit options at a low price and I wish I had had this photo to reference over the summer for our photo-shoots and our summer ad campaigns! Looking to capture a similar look? Take a look at some of the options we still have left – in particular, the classic seersucker suit!
