Costume Details

All the elegance of the Gatsby era, this cream dinner jacket outfit has a look of the character Tom Buchanan, one of Hemingway’s classic characters from the Great Gatsby..

The Suit – is made up of a cream single breasted peak collar style dinner jacket, black evening waistcoat also with a shawl style collar, white wing collar shirt, evening trousers with buttons for the button braces, black bow tie, cummerbund for the waist and a cream silk evening scarf. <

The Jacket - is a cream single breasted, shawl style collar dinner jacket often only worn in tropical locations and during the summer which is why Jay Gatsby carries off the look which such elegance. The dinner jacket was first thought to be introduced to gentleman’s evening attire in the 1860s by the then Prince of Wales Edward VII and was made by the prestigious Savile Row tailor Henry Poole & Co.

The Waistcoat - also has a shawl style collar and fastens with 4 buttons. There is a buckle fastening at the back in order to pull the waistcoat in to give a more fitted look. A waistcoat always gives a more dapper appearance. .

The Trousers – are black evening trousers with a silk/satin stripe running down on the outside seam from waist to hem. They come complete with a pair of braces which help keep the front pressed seam looking straight and smart.<

The Shirts – have a wing collar and a patterned front. They would have been worn with shirt studs and a detachable collar but to make it easier and more comfortable we have used a modern wing collar shirt, the design is still exactly the same, no change.<<

The Bow Tie – an eight piece flat cap often known as a Baker boy cap. The cap is wool tweed fully lined and has a popper on the peak to hold it down, or you could leave the popper undone for a fuller look, no razor blades

The Cummerbund -We have added a black cummerbund to wear underneath the waistcoat and over the trouser waist. The cummerbund gives a neat finish to the elegant look, often necessary when in the middle of dancing the Charleston!.

The Evening Scarf -is an accessory every gentleman needs to enhance his evening attire.

The Fabric –The jacket is made of a good quality wool as well as the trousers and waistcoat. The shirt is cotton and the bow tie a silk satin mix. The cummerbund is made from a wool or satin mix and the evening scarves are silk.
