As the quintessential Jazz Age dreamer with an eye for style and an unparalleled level of charm, Jay Gatsby is one of literature’s most renowned characters. The novel from which he came, F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, directly referenced T&A in a now-iconic scene which sees Gatsby fling his shirts in the air while his beloved Daisy cries because she has ‘never seen such beautiful shirts before’. Therefore it seemed natural that when the book was reimagined on the silver screen for the first time in 1974, T&A was the first port of call to create the eponymous protagonist’s shirt and tie.
The Gatsby tie comes in a repeat floral and spot pattern coloured in tepid tones of green, pink and orange atop a pastel blue base. Pair this piece with the coordinating Gatsby shirt for an understated ode to the 1920s fictional antihero.
Our silk ties are hand-sewn in Kent by a team of artisans with centuries of combined experience. Our printed designs are a more contemporary choice as they’re smoother in texture and allow for a greater colour palette; their lighter weight also makes them ideal for warmer weather. The signature paisley tipping is made with acetate to withstand any abrasion caused by belts or zips. The blade of each design features a unique hidden 'loop' made from strongest-ever bonded thread, which allows the tie to ruche and relax back into place after wearing.
