Mad Men has set many style trends over the years; The slim charcoal suit, thick framed glasses, the side part, and now…plaid jackets. At least one has appeared in every episode so far this season, and they took it to a whole new level this past Sunday (see above).
Certainly plaid jackets could be found prior to Mad Men (as could a slim charcoal suit, thick framed glasses and side parts), however, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of these this spring and summer based solely on their new staring role.
Keep in mind that this is advanced style. If you plan on experimenting yourself, make sure it’s in a modern cut, and unless you work in a creative field…save it for the weekend.
