Men’s & Women’s Narrow Shoes and ‘Mad Men’ Inspired Style!
In honor of the two hour season premiere of Mad Men, we present The Banana Republic limited-edition capsule collection, featuring 1960s inspired dresses, cigarette pants, jewelry, menswear and accessories and we add our take on today’s narrow width footwear styles to compliment them!
About the Show: Set in 1960s New York, the sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama Mad Men follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell. The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper, the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960s traditional family values.
About the Clothes: The Emmy Award-winning costume designer for AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ partnered with Banana Republic for a second installment of the limited-edition capsule collection, featuring 1960s inspired dresses, cigarette pants, jewelry and menswear.
About the Shoes: In the early 1960′s rounded pumps were fashionable as were pumps with chunky heels for women. Men’s shoe styles…well shoe styles for men haven’t changed all that much. However, just as Banana Republic has taken 1960′s style and reinterpreted it in their collection, we’ve added our narrow shoe spin with our footwear selections, as well. Our women’s pump selections, some with rounded toe and others more pointy, are black and nude patent leather. A neutral patent leather pump is a nice alternative to the black patent leather black pump we see so often. We chose two casual lace-up athletic style loafers to match the style of the casual lace-up oxford pictured below, for our narrow shoe selections for men. These great shoes are stylish and comfortable and right on trend for the fashionable guy who just happens to wear a narrow shoe width.
