2008_08_madmen.jpgThe critical darling 1960s ad agency drama Mad Men and its "Man in the Gray Flannel Suit" fashion inspires a NY Times look at what passes for advertising agency style these days. Boutique ad agency Droga5 CEO Andrew Essex sums it up: “Today, it’s the man in the artisanal T-shirt, selvaged denim with holes in them and really expensive vintage sneakers from a small boutique in Japan. The personalities haven’t changed that much, just the accouterments, like carefully harvested facial hair. Our agency people dress like well-paid teenagers, but that teenager may be 38.” Yes, and Peggy Olsen never left Don Draper a note letting him know she was getting a tattoo tomorrow.
