You could look at the gatsby collection at BB but that would be expensive.
Don't know if you are willing to pay retail, but Brooks Brothers has a Gatsby line.
The items I wear the most are PRL salmon chinos, light blue Rubinacci shirt, Varvatos black chukkas, Church's black tassel loafers, and vintage brown crocodile loafers
Only able to get to two stores a week tops right now, thankfully today's stop yielded a few fun things.
Gray chambray-ish Polo with cool throat latch. Worn Facconable s/s but colorful & linen so this time of year figure someone might be pleased. Minty Uniqlo, figured wth, I'll see if it fits. Paul & Shark s/s, first time seeing, n/a.
Also got the okay for FWB (full weight bearing) as tolerated, so it's cane time, baby. Getting my medical cane tomorrow, but when I thrift or E-thrift a sharp looking one I'll be sure to do a triumphant upright thrift fit photo.
Im in the same boat, just going in a DB seersucker suit
Favourite thrifted item is probably my Corneliani grey suit. First nice item that fit me perfect, also the first orphan I ever reunited.
One I wear the most often would probably be an Oliver Spencer or Filippa K shirt.

... almost forgot to include my legendary iPhone 7
Not feeling the shades with this one, man. Feel like some big ass aviators would be better.
I'm uploading some pics of a few recent finds but before I forget... if anybody is prepared to go all-in and rock some red Brooks Bros corduroy pants in Hudson fit W36 L30, let me know and I can swing back and proxy at cost plus ship. They're not a super bright medium RED!, but they're pretty bold. Pretty similar color to these pents on ebay, maybe just a touch darker.
I've only encountered four or so Pinks in my size, but every damn one of them had worn through the fabric at the collar tips. Is that a thing with Pinks? It's been pretty disappointing to find that on some otherwise nice shirts.
Hmm, I left a Corneliani orphan today, gray, Super 110s, looked recent and fit pretty well. Combed the entire store including the women's section but couldn't find the pants. Now I'm thinking I should go back and cop it anyway.
That place is a waste...haven't bought anything there in well over a year. Being that's their central distribution center, I think it gets hit hard daily.
If it's solid gray, don't. They can't be worn as sport coats. And if it's a selling thing, Corneliani-branded doesn't sell well enough (their full suit ebay value is significantly undervalued, imho) to make it worthwhile.
