Mad Men Revisited

August 6, 2009

You may remember my post earlier about wanting a Mad Men vibe for the groomsmen in this post. Well, the much anticipated partnership between Banana Republic and Mad Men has finally arrived! The womenswear has some promising outfits. However, the men’s outfits are less than inspiring:

While I agree, that suit looks very similar to Don’s, I feel like they had that suit before. Anyway, I am thinking it’s not going to be the best fit for Aaron since he has a slimmer build. Perhaps something more like this?

This is from Burberry, or as I like to call it, Unaffordable. So, of course, I found my alternative love at JCrew!

Get ready for a big load of pictures!

Now THIS looks very Mad Men to me, with the pocket square and tie clip.

I’m not sure how I feel about these pants. They seem a bit tapered. What do you guys think?

Drum roll, please! Her comes my all time fave suit! It is so nearly perfection. When I first saw it, I thought it was light gray. But the description says it is actually faded black fine stripes. I think if it were light gray, it would match perfectly with the bridesmaids’ pewter dresses. But this way it will be nice too, I think. I will have to actually see the swatch to make sure. It is also cotton (compared to the two wool suits above), will be easier to move in and cooler in the outdoor wedding.

But, right away I know this will 99% not happen. Mr. Chick refuses to wear stripes. Refuses! And of course I want him to wear something he loves. So we shall see. I’m sure we can find something similar somewhere else in light gray. Also, I might be just a teeny tiny bit biased in liking this suit because the model looks like a young Johnny Depp. Just saying!
