Cinched for Men: Gatsby Garb

An array of my favorite young lads have been seeking sartorial advice for thursday evening. For those of you that want to make me proud and dig up a vintage three piece suit, I've provided some visual inspiration bellow. The rest of you slackers, I know you have better things to worry about like the five fantasy football teams you're managing, here is some easy advice...
There are basically three 1920's looks that are easy to execute: the preppy Tom Buchanan, the flashy Jay Gatsby, or the Speakeasy sleazy...
Tobey Maguire, Leonard Dicaprio, and Joel Edgerton filming The Great Gatsby
1.  Tom Buchanan is obviously dressed to his pedigree...he's a high class snob/ real piece of sh** of the 20's, in a high buttoned three piece crisp navy suit. Those fancy pants out there get out your fancy 3 piece suits, find a vest to wear under your normal suit, orrrr get yourself a Scotch&Soda Blazer w fake gilet


2. Dig up an old news boy cap to channel the humble Nick Carraway or a flat topped round rimmed like new money Jay Gatsby, remember though, Gatsby isn't anyone sans the yellow Rolls.

These gentlemen made the nest of hats and vests for a 20's garb...
Speakeasy sleazy guidelines come tomorrow...

Gentlemen, this is a small taste of what is to come. Cinched menswear blog up by christmas...
