How much it would cost to be the Great Gatsby? About $34.3 million

With the Great Gatsby movie hitting theaters, there’s been a renewal of interest in the fashion of the 1920s. Suddenly there are a whole lot more dames sporting the iconic bob haircut, while even Brooks Brothers released a line of shirts meant to mimic Gatsby’s own fashion. A new haircut would cost maybe $50, a shirt perhaps $100, but how much would it cost to actually be J Gatsby?

According to this infographic by Nickolay Lamm, you can expect to pay about $34.3 million. And that’s with a pretty tight budget of $250,000 to actually throw his monumental parties. Now I understand why all Gatsby’s friends were suspicious of his fortune.
