The Mad Men Aesthetic

I always love comparisons and it makes it even sweeter when it’s a comparison of two things I support so strongly Mad Men, the show about liquor swilling, lovablely hateable, non-P.C. ad executives from the 1960’s, and G.Q., the iconic men’s magazine celebrating 50 years of dictating classic American style seem to share the same aesthectic leanings. That is classic American business and sportswear. An appreciation of women boarding on objectification, and the whole black and white silhouette figure icon. Kind of noir, sort of classic American. Kudos to both
