Banana Republic launches Mad Men range (US only for now though)

By Stefano on February 28th, 2013


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.

There’s even more here. It might make it to the UK – keep an eye on the website.

Style: Jefferson Farah Vintage Retro Mod Breton

By Stefano on February 13th, 2013


Farah Vintage has just unveiled a very striking new range of Mod type Breton style jumpers. There’s a traditional blue and white (which is nicely in keeping with the vogue for all maritime things) version here, but I prefer this navy and red number.

It is Beatnik style features a cool Sixties Mod Breton stripe detail in chilli red throughout and has a Ribbed hem, cuffs and collar and Farah Vintage embroidery to the chest.

Breton jumpers were a staple of the beatniks in the early 60s as they attempted to ape cool French new wave stars (and American ones like Jean Seberg). Breton is derived from the region of Brittany in France and the Brittany flag in fact also consists of monochrome stripe detail, much like the jumper

It is made from 60% Cotton, 30% Polyamide and 10% Wool and is yours here for £54.99.
