Style and the Mad Man

Feature

Friday, September 04, 2009

Don Draper represents a version of masculinity a lot of guys today never knew. The fictional character played by John Hamm in AMC's "Mad Men," is a 1960s ad man who's serious, well-dressed, and secretive. Studio 360's Eric Molinsky tries to understand why fans of the show are ready to ditch their t-shirts and jeans for dapper suits and ties.

Great segment. I just wonder if there is any middle ground for men today. Most women don't really want either a juvenile "Seth Rogen" or philandering "Don Draper".
