Mad Men!

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Let the rehashing begin. In answer to all your (and our) post-season-5 wardrobing questions, The Cut sits down with Mad Men's costume designer, Janie Bryant. In the short Q&A, Bryant answers queries like "How did Betty's weight gain affect her wardrobe?" and "Why did Ted Chaough wear that turtleneck-and-sports-coat combo?" Also, a note on Megan's drunk pajama scene: House robe or not, she's no Trudy. "She’s more modern, and she’s not in the lacy, quilted, pastel peignoir — she’s in her hip, 1960s floral nylon robe with a sexy little chemise underneath." [The Cut]
