Director Baz Luhrmann brought his cast from "The Great Gatsby" to Australia for the film's premiere yesterday evening. Baz wore a beautiful white/cream coloured shawl collared tuxedo. When I saw the cropped fit and style, Thom Browne came to mind. Turns out I am not too far off. Brooks Brothers collaborated with the film to produce a capsule collection of elegant dress shirts and suitings, so it seemed natural for the director to return the favour by wearing Brooks Brothers. The Thom Browne designed Black Fleece Brooks Brothers collection generally comes with a tighter and cropped fit, but not as severe as Browne's own collection. Love the tuxedo on Baz Luhrmann, although I wished the sleeves could be a tad longer. (or was it deliberately rolled up to showcase the green cufflinks, possibly from Tiffany & Co.?)

Have you seen "The Great Gatsby" yet? Does it live up to the hype? I'm going to try and watch it soon.

  1. Not really big fan of Thom Browne's cut. Arm's length is too short, that shows too much shirt.

    I don't know if Mr. Luhrmann wore a cumberbun or a high waisted flat-front pants.

    But in general that gives him a great look for him.

    ps : i think that white shirt with black studs was better.
