If 60s fashion floats your boat then you’ve probably considered dressing up as your favorite character from AMC’s hit drama Mad Men. Fashion plays a pivotal role on the show as costume designer Janie Bryant goes to great lengths to stay true to the styles of the era. While you may not have the same costume budget to work with, a little thrift store hunting should be all you need to put together your own amazing costume. For a little inspiration, here are some of my favorite Mad Men Halloween costumes from around the ‘net.

This guy’s got the basic ingredients right: dark suit, white shirt, skinny tie, hair full of pomade. The booze and smokes are a nice touch as well. Yet something seems to be missing from his Don Draper costume. Maybe it’s the lack of tailoring in the suit (1960’s suits were always well-tailored). Maybe it’s that he’s missing a fedora. The tie could be skinnier, the suit a bit lighter (maybe a nice light gray). Overall not a bad effort though.
