Crisp White Shirt

Take an older shirt, and ask a girl for a smudge of lipstick for that "cad about town" look.

Retro Tie

This is the part that really sells the '60s aspect. Go for a vintage piece.

Pocket Square

The best costumes (and suits for that matter) come down to details and Don would never be without this gentlemanly essential.

Gray Suit

"Don's a serious guy so he's always in a gray suit," says costumer designer Janie Bryant. "And every guy should own a gray suit, right?"

Black Shoes

Be sure not to wear your best pair. Chances are someone's going to pull a Sterling and throw up in your vicinity.

How to:
Dress Up Like
Don Draper

You aren't really the type of guy who dresses up as a vampire, gangster or bottle of mustard. Then head to your closet (or the nearest vintage shop) and go as antihero Don Draper. Sure, you'll likely to run into a few other Dons. That's why you need to sweat the details and work on your game. The finishing touch sure to score you some numbers? Printable business cards.

Mr. Draper, your cards are ready.
