Most men’s suspenders are made with function in mind, while women’s suspenders are designed solely as a fashion accessory.

As influential as it is, The Great Gatsby didn’t do so great when Scribner’s first published it in 1925. Rather, it received mixed reviews, sold poorly and when F. Scott Fitzgerald died in 1940, he believed himself a failure whose best work was forgotten. Fortunately, history has told a different story about this fascinating look at timeless themes of social change, decadence, idealism and excess - as seen through the prism of New York’s Jazz Age. Through the narrator, Nick Carraway, we see Jay Gatsby, a mysterious millionaire with an obsessive passion for Daisy Buchanan, a former debutante and still beautiful - at least on the outside. Like Gatsby himself.
