  • SCARVES - NOUVEAU - MERINO

    In F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic; ‘The Great Gatsby’ the common perception of Nouveau Riche is one of being ostentatious and classless.  Has this observation been deployed by those with old money?  Is this a defence motivated by jealousy, a way to fiercely retain a supposed  superior reign?  – ‘Oh yes you are indeed as wealthy as I, but – is your money ‘old’ money? Where my dear chap did you and your inheritance come from???’  Money can’t buy you taste or class.  Is it however possible for a poor person displaying both of these traits to come into immediate wealth and proudly retain their past?  Jimmy Gatz, a poor farmers son lies about his past as he evolves into the ‘Great Gatsby’.  Selling alcohol illegally, he is able to attain money quickly – he believes by having money and a new persona he in turn has the ultimate power or does he?
