The official Mad Men suit...

By none other than Brooks Brothers, of course. They were the clothier for many actual Madison Avenue men. Link to a GQ article featuring an interview with the costume designer here. I'm glad she agrees with me that high rise flatters men much better, but a little disappointed she compromised on that in designing the suit. If you're going to make a limited edition suit inspired by the '60s, do it right.

  2. Thanks, I appreciate it. :)

    The suit is selling really fast. Only a few sizes left! Not like I could afford it anyways, but it would have been nice. :-/

  4. Despite my complete reverence for 50's fashion I've never watched Mad Men.

    I had a boyfriend at one point who did, he was a German fellow that kind of reminded me of someone who belonged in that era. He bought a few of these suits and he was, excuse the pun, 'mad' over them.
