In The Great Gatsby (1974), Jay Gatsby (Robert Redford) is wearing this sweater when he shows Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow) all of the newspaper clippings of her life that he has saved—and when they touch one another’s hands for the first time. The best aspect of this film is the chemistry between the two before they begin their affair, before the world intrudes—and the two sweaters adapted here will bring that romance into your wardrobe. The Robert Redford Tennis Sweater is just right for a first date (whether on the courts or off), while the Mia Farrow Strolling Blouse will earn any man’s eternal devotion.
