Brooks Brothers

Mad Men Branded Clothing Label

Mad Men has been a hit not only because of its dramatic portrayal of life in the early 1960s, but also because of the sleek fashions of the men and women involved with the ad agency, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

Now, everyone can experience the style of Mad Men with a branded clothing line available for both men and women. Costume designer for the show, Janie Bryant, has taken a cue from fashion designers like Michael Kors and Miuccia Prada as well as retailers like Banana Republic, who have been influenced by the series’ clothing.

The first item will be a limited edition Mad Men grey sharkskin suit from Brooks Brothers ($998) modeled after the wardrobe of ad execs, Don Draper and Roger Sterling.

The suit has the classic slim cut, narrow notch lapels, and diagonal vents that make Jon Hamm (Don Draper) one of the hottest actors in Hollywood. The clothing line will also include evening gowns, men’s accessories, and office wear in the future.

If you can’t wait for the collection to come to a store near you, Janie Bryant suggests you start with a classic sheath: “You can make one so modern with a great pair of platforms and add accessories from the period, such as a brooch or lots of pearls.”

    Nice post, thanks. One of the most attractive things about Mad Men is the work wardrobe of the main male characters. Their outward confidence is well reflected in the suits they choose. It’s a pity we’ve lost that style today. Can you imagine Don Draper pushing for a dress down day? Or Roger Sterling wearing jeans and trainers? I certainly can’t. . .
