Is men’s fashion about to go roaring back to the 1920s? With the upcoming film release of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Brooks Brothers, the clothier that clothed the film, is optimistic it will happen.
It is all in the details. While men’s business suits leave very few opportunities for personal stylization, the selections can define a man’s fashion sensibilities or his lacking thereof. Fashion designer Tom Ford is aware that there are only few ways men can distinguish themselves by accessorizing.
