He looked at you and understood you in the way that you wanted to be understood.
Jordan Baker (of Gatsby): "He's an Oxford man." Tom Buchanan: "Like hell he is! He wears a goddamned pink suit!"
Nick Carraway: Stocks reached record peaks, and Wall Street boomed a steady golden roar. The parties were bigger, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the models were looser, and the ban on alcohol had backfired. Making the liquor cheaper. Wall Street was luring the young and ambitious, and I was one of them.
