THE GATSBY COLLECTION

 
          
          
 
 


What is a true classic? 
A true classic is  a piece of art that becomes part of our reality, part of our language, so ingrained in our conciseness , that we forget that it was something  created in the not-so-distant past, rather than something that has just somehow always been there. It defines an era, a memory, an emotion, a time and place in our own lives, and in the history that surrounds us. Such a great work was written in 1922, when F. Scott Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new, something extraordinary, intricately patterned, beautiful and simple.” And thus the extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple story became “The Great Gatsby”. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies this country's most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. Gatsby's rise to glory and eventual fall from grace becomes both a love poem and a cautionary tale about the American Dream. Besides the book, four motion pictures (including a promised remake coming soon), a mini-series, and an opera,  have since been produced based upon it. Of course the “lassique grand” of them all was the 1974 Paramount Pictures movie with Robert Redford as “Gatsby”, and Mia Farrow as “Daisy” (with a screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola!).


Gatsby became a way of talking, of moving, of thinking, and of dressing (for the 1974 movie "Life" Magazine coined the phrase the "Gatsbyizing of America"). Among the many ingredients of this classic to become part of our lexicon was the “Gatsby Cap”. Baron Hats is proud to offer a custom “Gatsby” (great looking on men and women!) inspired by this true classic. These caps are made to the exact designs of the original style of the 1920’s and of the apotheosis Robert Redford 1974 movie version.

More Gatsby Styles!

Baron Hats recently created “Gatsby” style caps for the wonderfully talented entertainer, and great friend of Baron's,   actor/comic GEORGE LOPEZ. He wanted only the best, made of the finest cashmere. We were so impressed by the way the caps turned out, especially how they looked and felt on our heads, and the fact that this top quality cashmere virtually never wears out, that we have decided to make two styles available to you as part of our “Gatsby Collection”!
