Exciting day for me.
Most people who know me (which is most likely no one on here, given my low post count - lol), know that I am a fanatic about the Great Gatsby, in the context of literature. I've read the book about 7 or 8 times, and have written many essays in my spare time about my own arguments and theories regarding the text. I've taken a class on the novel in college, and have read countless scholarly essays by others on the piece of work. Needless to say, its my favorite piece of literature, and has been since my first read through during my freshman year at high school. It's a novel that has a special place in my heart. I'm no literary genius or analyst, its just a topic I enjoy researching.
Anyway, I finally bought the famous "pink suit" from the novel, from the Brooks Brother's Gatsby line. Im currently getting it tailored. I don't know if I'm going to wear it or just have it as part of my "Gatsby Collection", lol (I own a first edition copy of the novel and an autographed letter by Fitzgerald. Geek indeed).
Either way, I'm happy I finally got it. Quality wise, its a nice piece. Picked it up for 800. Its EXTREMELY light; linen, I believe, with a very light white stripe.
I'll post pictures when I get it back. I do have a wedding that I'll be attending early september, so I may wear it for that. Otherwise, I think it will just be a token piece for now.
