Gatsby showed Daisy his home, its library, the music room, newspaper clippings, pictures, and even his shirt collection. Daisy hung on every word.

Recovering himself in a minute he opened for us two hulking patent cabinets which held his massed suits and dressing-gowns and ties, and his shirts, piled like bricks in stacks a dozen high.

There was a small picture of Gatsby, also in yachting costume, on the bureau — Gatsby with his head thrown back defiantly — taken apparently when he was about eighteen.
“I adore it,” exclaimed Daisy. “The pompadour! You never told me you had a pompadour — or a yacht.”
“Look at this,” said Gatsby quickly. “Here’s a lot of clippings — about you.”
