Vintage Cufflinks For Mad Men
As I was watching Season Four of Mad Men, I couldn’t help but notice the number of vintage cufflinks and collar bars that were used in the costumes.
Perhaps it’s the business I’m in, but I found myself looking at cufflinks, collar bars, suits, ties, tie clasps, watches, pocket handkerchiefs, and Roger’s three piece suits & fob chains.
The Sixties really were a time where men were proud of their attire and ways to express their individuality.
Don Draper looks good in a suit. As does Roger Sterling.
Both of them, and many others, wore their cufflinks proudly. And Pete Campbell was wearing a collar bar in a number of scenes. Collar bars are making a comeback.
The Sixties are a stark contrast to today’s office attire.
More often than not, companies have opted for open collars and no neckties. Don’t get me wrong, I can see the appeal. Who want’s to be trangled by a necktie and collar all day long?
But you look at a show like Mad Men, and all the men look good – because of their attire.
Men of the Sixties made an effort to look good.
In the Sixties there were no jeans half way down your butt, defying gravity, with your underwear showing. Seriously, do young men think that looks good? I can guarantee that girls don’t find it appealing.
Do you like the Mad Men style? With vintage cufflinks?
