    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Remember those bygone days when men dressed like gentlemen and women dressed like ladies? OK, fine, probably not, but if you've watched episodes of the TV show Mad Men, you've probably at least been intrigued by the classic, dressed-up American clothes of the 1960s.

      Starting in August, fans will be able to channel their inner Don and Betty Draper when Banana Republic launches its Mad Men-inspired collection in stores across North America. The collection, which includes more than 60 pieces of apparel and accessories for men and women, was designed in collaboration with the show's costume designer, Janie Bryant.

      The women's collection features lady-like dresses, tailored trench coats, high-waisted skirts, silk blouses, and statement accessories like leopard-print pumps. Meanwhile, the men's collection is made up of tailored suit separates, fitted trousers, knit sweaters, and classic accessories, such as money clips, pocket squares, silk ties, tie bars, and fedora hats.

      No word yet on what the price range of this collection will be; however, true retro vixens will know that Mad Men-style wares run aplenty at local vintage and consignment shops.
