Ever wanted to dress like Don Draper and his dapper Madison Avenue chums? Well now you can – sort of. Banana Republic has just launched a range of Mad Men inspired clothing in the US for both men and women which was created by the series costume designer Janie Bryant. Given fashion’s current yen for all things black and white and stripey you might have expected a few more op art type items in the range. But nope, in keeping with BR’s image the range is classy, reasonably well priced and rather conservative. The women’s stuff with its geometric prints and loud stripes is loads better.
I do however like the blue suit, though would have liked an extra button, and it works well with that tie. Not too sure about some of the range but you can make your mind up.
Nice Fedora hat though.

Straw Fedora hat $45
This is great. It has a whiff of the films Sweet Smell Of Success about it too.
