Just to add my $0.02 - Without the title (which isn't on the shirt), this is just two cats in 20's garb and a nice Art Deco backdrop.
There's no props that actually *identify* the design as being related to TGG (i.e. no Rolls-Royce w/ a dead cat behind it, a smoking gun, etc.) As I read the Derby theme, the Roaring Twenties came to mind, which (if we published our collaboration email thread) was where the idea came from.
I don't remember who gave the guideline, but a good test for "pop culture" is "if you need to know an outside source reference to understand the design, it's probably Pop Culture." As it is, you don't need to know the Great Gatsby to understand the 20's night scene...
(Again, just my $0.02)
