March Madras carries on, but now it’s back to madness — mad as in “Mad Men,” which returns to TV this Sunday night after a 17-month hiatus.
The setting is now 1965, so the clock is ticking in the closets of these Ivy-clad* Madison Avenue guys.
Pictured above is a still from the new season and features the character Pete Campbell in a swell madras jacket.
“Mad Men” kicks off a 9 pm with a two-hour season premiere on the AMC channel. — CC
* Or at least supposed to be.
The Foreign Language of ‘Mad Men’:
I am a big fan of Mad Men. Maybe Pete will continue to dress in his ivy style well into the 70’s. Only time will tell!
I love this era and cant wait to see the new series!! : )
It’s actually June of ’66 when this season resumed.
Allan Flusser has a madras jacket almost exactly like Pete’s – Pink instead of red in the madras. Saw it in a Mad Men tribute window at Stein Mart for $59.00 down from $150.00. Lipstick on the shirt collar not included!
