Banana Republic Mad Men Collection
Banana Republic has just announced that come August 11, 2011 they will be introducing a line of Mad Men-inspired clothing, based on the Mod looks seen on the AMC Series. The Capsule Collection will feature a total 65 pieces including Suits, Dresses, Ties, Sweaters, Hats, Skirts, Coats and Blouses.
Originally the Collection was to launch in tandem with the Premiere of Mad Men's Fifth Season however ongoing Contract negotiations have pushed the Season Premiere to early 2012.
It was also just announced that Lead Actor Jon Hamm has signed a new three-year Contract with Lionsgate, which potentially could mean he'll be starring in the Series up until its seventh season. With the Contract, it is said that he will now be paid $250k per Episode. Well-played!
