Mad Men Style: The Best of the Sixties

A lot of people can't wait for Mad Men next Sunday because they think Jon Hamm is hot. Others just want to see January Jones do her Breck Girl thing again. Poor confused Sal -- will he or won't he? -- that will keep a lot of us going.

And everyone in the beleaguered advertising industry is dying for another whiff of what life could have been like, if they'd been born thirty years earlier. Not me. I can't wait for Man Men to resume because I want to see all those midcentury modern sets -- it's my own weird Selectric dream come to life.

To get me through the final countdown, I've been looking through old issues of House Beautiful and found some real Mad Men style from the sixties. Unfortunately, not in High Def.
