So, you’ve been looking forward to last night’s 2-hour premiere of Mad Men for the better part of a year now. Transgressions, tortured relationships and the hearkening of a better Don Draper aside (not to mention the quote of the night: “Betty! What the hell?!”), it’s still hard to deny Mad Men‘s grip on our darker, more stylish selves.
That’s right: it’s not just the incredible storytelling that’s so appealing about the show. It’s the style and setting narratives that relive a fabled American decade. Tailored suits and bespoke dresses. Cigarettes. Muted hues. The Rolling Stones and Beatles. More cigarettes. And the subtle dress watch.
The watches of Mad Men are meticulously curated, but in appreciation of yesterday’s premier, we’ve corralled five pieces of the era currently available for you to bid, peruse or purchase at will. Where you starch your matching white shirts we leave entirely to your discretion.
