With a cast that live in sharp suits and never have a hair out of place, the marketing mavericks of Mad Men and the razor sharp hacks from The Hour ooze old school style, making them the best-dressed TV shows of recent years.
So what is it about the late 50s/early 60s style that always looks so sharp?
This classic style is universally appealing. And its glamour has clearly made an impression on the modern man, as timeless suits and accessories that matter (tie clips, collar pins and cuff links) all find their place in 2011's wardrobe.
However, as much as the extras matter, and trust us they do if you're striving to create an impression of impeccable taste, the key to attaining the swagger of Don Draper is a well cut suit.
When shopping for a Mad Men style ensemble Favourbrook tailor's will create the following in your next suit:
Slim Cut Silhouette: A slim silhouette makes you look trimmer and taller, no matter what your current physic.
Medium Grey: A grey suit goes everywhere. Black can be a touch formal while brown is a tad dreary.
Narrow Lapels: The classic 1960's lapel is still distinctly modern and flattering.
Side Vents: Instead of a single vent at the centre back, this jacket features two side vents. This allows the suit to retain its shape when you are sitting, has more ease of movement and lets you rest your hands in the pockets without disturbing the silhouette.
Sleeve Length: The perfect sleeve length for a jacket shows about a half inch of shirt sleeve. Don't have you hands swamped or expose any forearm.
You might not have the stunning wife (or mistress), glamorous business or devilish good looks - but with this suit you can at least dress to kill like the moguls of Madison Avenue.
