Mad Men Style

(Source: The Age)

The Mad Men TV series has recently inspired both women and mens fashion in Europe and the US and now it has gone mainstream here. At the Myer Autumn/Winter Fashion Launch yesterday the catwalk was overrun with Mad Men glamour. On show were stylish dinner suits with close fitting and narrow peak lapel jackets accessorised with the obligatory white folded pocket square. It's a classic but timeless look and was finished off beautifully with slicked down hair and dark rimmed spectacles.

Also on show were fifties style three piece suits in sombre greys and checks. The addition of a waistcoat really does maketh the man!

Pernac can tailor make a Mad Men suit which includes a tight fit, narrow lapels and slanted pockets and we have lots of Mad Men style fabrics including plain grey and end on end fabrics as well as wool/mohair mixes which give the fabric that translucent sharkskin sheen so popular in the late fifties and early sixties.
