Mad Men-era suit/sportcoat question

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Where can I find a Mad Men-era suit that is made-to-measure? What brands do they make suits and sportcoats like they wear on Mad Men and stores nearby in South Carolina or more than 300 miles closer like NYC? I know high-end department store Barney's sell Band of Brothers, Co-Op, and Thom Browne neckties that are appropriate width 2.25"-2.75" inches wide. Nordstrom have skinny neckties too.

I love Mad Men fashion.

If it's MTM or bespoke, show your tailor the Mad Men suit of your choice, and he should be able make it for you.

Skinny lapels and ties are probably not a good look for you as a bigger guy.

Yeah, right. Maybe in Mongolia.
Most tailors cannot or will not do bespoke in the US.
True bespoke only really exists in New York, Chicago, Washington DC, LA,Boston , etc.
MTM depends on an existing model and is available an major high end retailers and
independent shops., e.g. Wilkes bashford, The Andover Shop

I agree. B&B had a program where you could pick fabric and then have the suit made up in a stock size. If the Fitzgerald fits you well, this might be an option.
