Mad Men Style: Get the Mad Men look!

I am sure like us many of you are crazy about Mad Men, the American TV show that has taken the states, the UK and the world by storm.

In case you have not caught it yet Mad Men is set in the 1960s, initially at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency in New York City and later at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. The show centers on Don Draper (Jon Hamm), a creative director at Sterling Cooper, and is set around his life and relationships both inside and outside the office. It also depicts the changing nature of society in 1960s America.

Jeremy Langmead, the editor of Esquire argues that in the 1960s

"The advertising industry really blossomed. That is why they looked good. They were selling a dream so they had to look as though they were part of that dream."

Since it first aired, it has had a massive impact on style aficionados on both sides of the Atlantic, sending ripples through the world of fashion. As a result of the show many men follow the mad men 1960’s principle of wearing skinny ties, tailored but not tight suits, handkerchiefs folded into pocket squares, higher worn trousers, tie clips, tie pins, grey and blue colors and more unusual fabric patterns. Sales of such products have been incredible at KJ Beckett since the show was first aired on the BBC.
