Mad Men fans, this one’s for you. If you’re a fan of Don Draper’s hella handsome style on the show, we’re offering you a way to make it last long after the series finale airs this spring. We’ve teamed up with Lionsgate and Mad Men’s award-winning costume designer Janie Bryant to bring you the ultimate Mad Men giveaway: One lucky reader will score a suit from Don’s own closet!
Why This Is Mega-CoolMad Men has never given away a piece from their costume department before, so you have a chance to own a piece of history. Plus, this particular suit is really meaningful: “Don Draper’s suits represent his protective armor,” Bryant told InStyle. “They’re how he hides his true self from the world.” The one we’re giving away is a gray glen-plaid look, designed by Bryant and produced by Brooks Brothers, inspired by Cary Grant’s character in the 1959 film North by Northwest. The prize includes a suit jacket (which features the exclusive Mad Men label Bryant designed herself), suit pants, shirt, and skinny navy tie. Said Bryant, “I love the idea that his ties were an element of his character’s darkness.”
