How to Gatsby
 
http://www.artdecosociety.org/gatsby/m_overview.htm

The world would be infinitely more genteel if all gentlmen would adhere to a strict Gatsby code when choosing their haberdashery

I would love to see you dress like that in Texas. You'd be tarred, feathered and carried out of town on a rail as a moral hazard to the children.

I prefer the more natural approach...

One simply does not wear black ropers with camoflauge.

Here if you dress like that you're just a hipster. Especially those old-timey round frame glasses.

Always wear proper cycling attire.

My point exactly.

One must beware to not confuse Art Deco with Art Nouveau, and heaven forbid, you mistake any of it for mid-century modern or space age.

jsharr 06-19-13 11:29 AM

I often get Art Deco confused with Art Carney.

20 to 1 they aren't discussing women, dogs or pickup trucks. Probably talking about window treatments or how to keep flowers fresh.

I do beg your pardon, but I believe I said Great GATSBY, not Great Gutsby sir.

My daughter's bike (unbeknownst to her, even) has a sign that says, "My Dad can kick your Gatsby's A$$".

I sneer at fashion -- as my wardrobe will prove, should I care enough about it to display to anyone.

As long as I'm within dress code limits, my job doesn't care how I look, and my kids accept me as me, whether in cutoff jeans or dress pants. No one else's opinions matter...yep, that includes y'all, sorry to break it to you.

You think? The one on the right is Charles Beach, J.C.s partner and favorite model.

Look at their arms! These boys have never lifted anything heavier than a pen and a checkbook.

Big_e 06-19-13 07:41 PM

So a boater hat is considered fancy? There is nothing wrong with a boater.

i can't say i'm a fan of fitzgerald. his debut was a fun read and reminded me of 'an american tragedy.' but 'tender is the night' was especially a bore.

i did like his and zelda's (yum) depiction in woody's 'midnight in paris.'

concerning fashion, 1960s 'mad men,' with thinner ties and perfectly fitting jackets, has been the look for the last ten years. but 'thin,' whether it be waists or lapels, has never really gone out of style. personally, i think all guys look great in a nice jacket that fits well, regardless of their size. but gatsby? nah, we can all do without wearing trousers up to our tits with sweater capes.

That webpage makes me think of John Waters and Ed Wood. There's a veneer of gentility over an unmentioned spiritual seediness.

I wear my seediness right out there on my (SNIFF!) sleeve.

Yeah. That's what I tried to say.

eschlwc 06-20-13 07:19 PM

i'm all for spiritual seediness. just the other day, i made a planter box for a friend.

while digging the earth, i was wearing cut-offs and a plain, colored t -- my around-town, warm weather biking gear. which reminds me of more literature, kerouac's 'on the road.' he mentions that dungarees (jeans) and the colored t (new apparel in the '50s) was their uniform of choice, allowing them to visually separate themselves from the mainstream. things haven't changed all that much in 60 years...

ahsposo 06-20-13 07:26 PM

Except the Shift key is so much easier to use. Makes reading sentences and paragraphs a less tedious task for those of us less intellectually gifted.

Kind of like the Bizarro World opposite of FLAMING.

catonec 06-20-13 08:22 PM

be your own individual.

dont conform to some 50 year old trend to try to be cool.

silly person.
