After the popular show, Mad Men, hit televisions across the country it seems as if more and more men are trying to pull off the 60’s Cosmopolitan look. I forecast that the look will only get stronger with the premiere of The Playboy Club. Now, I have seen some #fails and I also have seen some #wins. This is a time period when men really took much pride into what they were wearing. It wasn’t uncommon to see a man in a suit on any given day, be it at a work or at dinner. To achieve this classic look, I put together a couple of items that should be in ever gentleman’s closet who wants to take a stab at this look:

The Skinny Tie

The skinny tie is the quintessential 60's accessory. The tie can have a pointed bottom or square bottom. Diagonal strips, thick fabrics and woven textures are your friend when it comes to these ties.

The White Pocket Square

The era when pocket square were really worn as a square and not a puff.

The Tie-Bar

The 60's were about being neat and always put together. Hence the tie-bar, which always keep your ties laying flat.

The Fedora

Keep your baseball cap in the closet until game day. 60's gentleman wore fedoras.

The Slim Fit Suit

The suit does for a man what a little black dress does for women, it creates a shape. The slim fit suit creates the square shoulders and a lean physique.
