mad men



This man was smart, in both definitions of the word, especially about men's fashion. Everything he's wearing is Savile Row, mostly bespoke. There were two of us shooting him, trying to be considerate of each others' space, but the photographer's head got in only this shot (hence posting it: the others were just picture perfect). Our 'model' gave me his card but I can't recall his name. I think it was Don Draper.

Mad Men's on tonight, BBC4! 10:00 p.m. Counting the minutes.

UPDATE: Found his card, just as coincidentally my blog friend and Style Crusader, Jen, reminded me she shot him, too, and has his card. His name IS Don!! Donalrd McFarlane, and he's got a quite good guide to British menswear: greatbritishattire.co.uk.

Nice picture. I think it always funny to have other photographers in pictures.

I love Mad Men so obviously I love men who dress in suits. Especially like this! There's such a difference between high street suits and Savile Row tailoring and I absolutely adore my boyfriend in his Boateng suits!!

Woo-hoo! Signed in today to find lots of Jill pics to look at -- Polka Dot + coffee = excellent way to start my day.

I do love a man in a sharp suit, especially with a gorgeous topcoat like that. He's yummy.

The suit is indeed quite good, he looks like a character on a 007 movie.
