Eyeing his friend's exquisite European clothes, he (Scott Fitzgerald) asked, "Are you what they call a fop?" (Scott's own sartorial expression was more in the Arrow Collar-ad mode). No, Gerald told him. As he later explained it, "I was a dandy, which is something entirely different. . . . I liked clothes that were smart, without having any interest in fashions or styles, and I dressed just the way I wanted to, always."
