"Clarence Endive was from East Egg, as I remember. He came only once, in white knickerbockers, and had a fight with a bum named Etty in the garden. From farther out on the Island came the Cheadles and the O. R. P. Schraeders, and the Stonewall Jackson Abrams of Georgia, and the Fishguards and the Ripley Snells. Snell was there three days before he went to the penitentiary, so drunk out on the gravel drive that Mrs. Ulysses Swett’s automobile ran over his right hand. The Dancies came, too, and S. B. Whitebait, who was well over sixty, and Maurice A. Flink, and the Hammerheads, and Beluga the tobacco importer, and Beluga’s girls."

Town to Country - Beach to Bar or Yacht to Polo Field this spunky fashion label has you covered - literally!
Meet BASK the New York based dapper style toweling blazer company that dresses the rich kids of Southampton to the Soho art crowd of downtown NYC.
We met the founder and head designer Marko Andrus at their Soho offices to go over where the inspiration to create a fashion label around toweling blazers came from and what 2016 looks like for this must-have fashion statement.
Also because I want everyone to BASK in their own "Great Gatsby" glory - our BASK friends are offering a speical promo code "JANUARY" for anyone that purchases a blazer to recieve 20% off - of yes - now that's true Gatsby generosity!!
Naturally I had to try out these luxury toweling threads in my native Soho habitat and it's safe to say these little beauties are now my go-to all purpose statement piece for this fall season.
Clearly I was more than happy to select out my very own Bask blazer!
The signature Monkey Bask emblem is not only adorable but resembles pure playfulness meets highend chic, it makes you just want to unleash your inner Monkey!
I left the interview with an arm full of Bask goodies - my inner monkey was content :)
I couldn't wait to try out these stylish blazers in my Soho neighborhood - perfect for that Saturday brunch attire and don't forget these towerling must-haves are perfect for those beach getways too! In fact- I'm going to be taking mine to Bondi Australia for some real beach action!
Also from day to night and night to day - the signature navy blue and white blazers are my faves! Also you can even get your name embroided into the garmet... now that's personalized service!
Channeling my inner Great Gatsby swagger came so naturally when wearing these fine Bask threads and had everyone in the street asking Who is this Bask? (aka Gatsby)
with each parcel you get the Monkey signature stamp on your parcel - sealed with pure cheeky playfulness
