F. Scott Fitzgerald was a life-long Brooks Brothers customer, making America’s oldest clothier a perfect partner for the film. “It was this most basic and fundamental connection that has made our collaboration so authentic,” said Martin.

A majority of the 500 men’s costumes featured in the film were inspired by images and products from the company’s archives. The resulting costumes added a period-specific authenticity to the film and helped bring Fitzgerald’s masterpiece to life in 3D.
