You already know The Great Gatsby is going to be chock full o’ menswear when it hits theaters next month but what you may not is that the lion’s share of the men’s threads come from the good folks at Brooks Brothers. Gatsby costume designer Catherine Martin worked with the venerable American clothier, which also outfitted F. Scott Fitzgerald for most of his life, to create hundreds of looks (500 outfits comprised of 1,700 individual pieces) not only for stars Leo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton, but for every male extra in the flick. Hear Martin talk about what it was like to go into the expansive Brooks Brothers archives and 1920’s style, plus some snippets from the film, in our exclusive clip after the jump.
