Dress like Don Draper with Brooks Brothers' help

mad_men_don_draperLately, Don Draper has not been coming off as a very nice guy on Mad Men. In fact, he's been a complete jerk. However, if there's one thing positive about the tall, dark and handsome ad man, he's a great dresser. Jon Hamm looks amazing in Don Draper's suits. Well, now so can you. Brooks Brothers is selling the Mad Men Edition suit for a mere $998. (Hey, that's not a grand, unless you count tax).

Don't dawdle, though. There's only 250 suits in the limited edition run. The look is inspired by the Mad Men 1960's Madison Avenue style, which could also be the How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying look from the Broadway show or The Dick Van Dyke Show look, depending on your favorite reference point from the '60s.

No, seriously, the Mad Men Edition will be very close to the AMC series designs. Designed by Janie Bryant, Brooks Brothers' press materials promise that "[it] evokes the clean style and sophistication of the early 1960s with a trimmer silhouette and period details." Hmm... does that include the glass of whiskey?

Brooks Brothers will make the suits available from October 19-November 8. November 8th, by the way, is the date of Mad Men's season finale. Can you believe the season is almost over? Argh!

Thanks for the great article! It's amazing how an expensive outfit can really make someone look sharp even if they aren't a nice person! I think I'll think I'd rather just stick to spending my money on coca cola collectibles rather than on nice suits. http://anythingcocacola.com

not included for $998, the ability to look as good in the suit as jon hamm. i'd drop 10x that much for a suit if when i put it on i looked that damn cool.
