A slew of Gatsby-related garb and gear is roaring into stores and onto websites. Besides the Brooks Bros. collection (see accompanying story), here are just a few other stylish options for the Daisy crazy — or anyone else feeling gung-ho for the new film:

DRINKS Moët & Chandon is one of the movie's official partners, delving into its archives to ensure that all the bubbly being poured on the silver screen was from bottles bearing historically accurate 1921 labels. To commemorate the film's release, Moët tapped mixologist Jim Meehan to create a cocktail called the Moët Imperial Gatsby, made by combining five ounces of Moët Imperial Champagne with one sugar cube that's been soaked in a quarter-ounce of Green Chartreuse and garnishing it with a spiral lime twist.

JEWELRY Tiffany, which worked extensively with "Gatsby" costume designer Catherine Martin to create the glittery baubles that appear on screen, is not releasing just one jewelry collection inspired by the film — it's releasing two.

The Great Gatsby collection by Tiffany & Co. is a collaboration between the jewelry company and Martin and is inspired by the jewelry worn by the cast (which was, in turn, inspired by pieces from Tiffany's archives). Standout pieces include the Savoy platinum headpiece with diamonds and cultured pearls like the one worn by Daisy Buchanan (though the $200,000 price tag may decimate all but the biggest West Egg nest egg), and a slightly more affordable pearl and diamond tassel pendant necklace ($35,000).

For those hoping to get their glittering Gatsby on sooner rather than later, there's also Tiffany's Ziegfeld collection, which is a more loosely based (and much more affordable) take on the same early 1920s. There are a host of daisy-motif pieces (the flora, not the character), including heart-shaped sterling silver lockets ($650) and Art Deco-inspired rings for women (sterling silver and onyx, $550), as well as monogrammed sterling silver and black enamel cufflinks for men ($350).

T-SHIRTS The upcoming film could give a boost in business to Out of Print Clothing, a company that focuses on putting out-of-print book cover art on a range of items from drink coasters and e-book covers to apparel (and pledges to donate one book to a community in need for each item it sells). Its Gatsby goods include the iconic Francis Cugat "Celestial Eyes" imagery from the 1925 first edition of the book emblazoned on a range of merchandise, including men's and women's T-shirts ($28 each), unisex sweatshirts ($42) and tote bags ($18), as well as a few tees with a flower-child/late '60s feel, thanks to a book cover art collaboration between the brand and graphic artist Mikey Burton.
