Vintage Sewing eBay Roundup – Men of Mad Men Edition

by Andrea

We had some fun last week speculating what the ladies of Mad Men are going to be wearing this season – now let’s take a look at what’s upcoming for Men’s Fashion!

First up, this Vintage 1969 Simplicity Men's Vest & Wide Pants

Ahh, this look.  I don’t know what you call this look?  Nehru-jacket-updated-for-the-office?  However, I can totally see trendy Harry Crane sporting something like this!

 

Next, we have this PATTERN VINTAGE 1969 M9636 MEN'S BUSINESS JACKET SINGLE/DOUBLE BREASTED

Obviously, the sport coat is a classic.  However, do you think we’ll see any of the men sporting this double-breasted look?

 

Then, we have this Vintage McCall's Pattern MISSES' AND MEN'S PONCHO

Ponchos are coming!  Ponchos are coming!  I don’t know who we will see wearing a poncho (perhaps not one of the main characters), but I sure would be surprised if we made it through 1969 without seeing at least one dude sporting a poncho!

 

Here, we have this vintage pattern: mens SHIRT & reversible VEST

The vests are coming, too!  While I am not a fan of the boxy vest look shown above, I do definitely like a more fitted vest on a man.  I could see Roger rocking this fancy vest look.

 

Finally, we have this vintage pattern: mens TURTLENECK SHIRT

I think we’re going to see a lot more turtlenecks this season.  Maybe Megan will hip up Don’s look and get him to sport more turtlenecks and blazers.

 

Have a great weekend, everybody!

    Meghan and don remind me of my very stylish aunt and uncle. Im not quite sure uf it was a later 60’s or early 70´s trend but they liked to dress alike. This always drove my very uptight mother insane.

      Oh good call on that one – I can totally see Megan dressing her and Don alike – whether he likes it or not!

    I am looking at the first pattern and thinking “Good Lord, no one would ever wear that” – and then it dawned on me – Mr. Furley from Three’s Company.

      Oh my goodness, you are totally right on that one, Susan – I just got a mental image of Mr. Furley wearing that outfit made out of a powder blue double knit!

    When I see turtlenecks, one 60s/70s TV show comes to mind — Chad Everett on “Medical Center.” He rocked those turtlenecks!

    Haven’t all the Mad Men moved to LA? In which case, maybe every day will be casual Friday??

      It is rumored they will be in LA this season – could definitely bring some more casual looks to their wardrobes for sure!

    I was a boy whose mother sewed many of mine and my sister’s clothes back then. For Easter 1972 I has a vest outfit very similar to that first pattern, complete with a little chain enclosure on the vest. I believe it was done in a purple/blue paisley design. Good memories!

      Very cool, Chris! Glad I could take you for a little trip down memory lane :-)

    Ha! I would LOVE to see Don in a poncho this season!!!

      LOL, Sara! That would be awesome, but somehow I am thinking his fashion line might be drawn a bit before a poncho, hah!
