1. The Michael Ginsberg
Michael’s style is precisely what the show’s stylist, Janie Bryant is–defiant. He’s the type of guy who wouldn’t be afraid to show just how eccentric he is with his loud, heavily-printed jackets, chunky cardigans, and printed dress shirts.
The Michael Ginsberg fashion is all about quirkiness mixed with an extroverted fashion sense.
2. The Stan Rizzo
Known to be the “future” in the world of Mad Men fashion, Stan Rizzo, is your unapologetically unsuited fashion rebel. He is the representation of the young creative in the contemporary advertising setting.
The Stan Rizzo is the ultimate look for anyone who just can’t be bothered with trends because he redefines them.
3. The Pete Campbell
Famous for his uniformed suits, Pete Campbell, although widely-abhorred for his character in the show, might just be the reason why blue suits became trendy again. He gives off a perfect mix of the old soul and the dandy schoolboy with his undeniably preppy fashion sense.
The Pete Campbell is a look that goes for polished, older fashions.
4. The Roger Sterling
The immaculate Roger Sterling who looks good in anything, and makes anything look good. His innate style gives him the guts to wear three-piece suits and double-breasted jackets with much ease. This gives him the air of luxury with a hint of excitement.
The Roger Sterling is the very inspiration for fun yet elegant menswear.
5. The Don Draper
Sharp and sleek without looking like he’s trying too hard, Don Draper is the epitome of an effortlessly stylish man. He is comfortable in his own skin and shows it by wearing what he likes and sticks with it. Because of that, he has become a totem of formality for this generation’s menswear.
