He wears extremely well-fitted clothing with confidence, uses color and pattern to great effect, and stands out in a crowd without ever pressing the limits of acceptable workplace attire. In the office, Don Draper is the go-to creative man. This page was last updated: The cuffs of the sleeves are long enough to cover his shirt cuffs when the coat hangs naturally, but show the fabric underneath when he lifts his arm. At his most sharply-dressed, he wears very bleached white shirts with stiffly starched collars.
His lapels are notched and on the slimmer side, a very characteristic look for Madison Avenue of the early s. Outside of a few formal-wear outfits, Draper almost never wears a solid-colored jacket or trousers. The colors of his suits are usually made from threads of multiple colors that blend to give the impression of a single dominant color. Many are explicitly patterned, though the patterns are always small and understated — in the business world of the s, any overt pattern outside of the classic pinstripe would usually be considered too casual for work.
Like any well-dressed man, Don Draper is almost never seen in a suit coat without a pocket square to decorate it. He keeps it simple: The uniform approach helps the audience understand that the pocket square is almost an unconscious touch for the character — something he knows is a fundamental of a good-looking man, rather than an ostentatious flourish. A single color dominates: At his most sharply-dressed, he wears very bleached white shirts with stiffly starched collars.
In both cases, however, Draper is observing the most symmetrical of collar styles for a dress shirt: The most striking thing about a good outfit: Because the rest of the Sterling Cooper staff favors more boldly-patterned ties, this helps Draper come across as the least image-conscious and most naturally-dressed man in group shots.
As the series progresses, he also begins to add tie pins, using a dash of metal to draw the eye the same way that a brightly-colored fabric would — but much more fashionably. He wears several different fedoras, all of them made from good felt and shaped to a similar peak. The shape of the hat mirrors the shape of his chin, giving him a very completed effect. We also see a few different coats on Draper throughout the show, including a notched-lapel camelhair and a high-collared tan trench coat.
