When it comes to TV characters you’d actually take fashion tips from, Don Draper of AMC’s Mad Men has got to be at the top of the list (bottoming out on that list would be Quagmire from Family Guy and Charlie from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia).
Draper wears a suit better than anyone, and that has more than a little to do with Janie Bryant, the show’s Emmy-nominated costume designer. If you had Janie working to fill your wardrobe, you might have had a chance of finding yourself at the top of an ad agency drinking Old-Fashioneds and mingling with hot secretaries, too. Now you can own at least one Mad Men inspired piece of clothing, with Brooks Brothers’ Mad Men Edition Suit, designed by Janie Bryant herself.
The suit is limited, with only 250 being made, and only for sale until November 8th (the night of the Season 3 finale, if you’re watching), so you’ll have to act quicker than the employees of Sterling-Cooper when they hear there’s half-off martinis at lunch. The look can’t get more classic than this: gray sharkskin fabric, narrow lapels, diagonal pockets and side vents. The retail price is $998, which is actually a female secretary’s annual salary at Sterling-Cooper. You can find them here on Brooks Brothers site.
