Retro Republik Sightings: 'Mad Men'

The retro, stylized and sensational drama Mad Men is a Retro Republik favorite - the historically accurate costume design, set design and props are painstakingly researched and flawlessly executed.

On a side note, Mad Men's central & complicated character, the dapper Don Draper played by Jon Hamm was eye-spied today by yours truly at the Nautica Malibu Triathlon.

Even though Mr. Hamm plays the ladies man and the big ad man in the corner office, he was an absolute gentleman. He even introduced himself to Fast Freddy.

Mr. Hamm competed in the triathlon with the 1/2 mile swim portion of the Celebrity Team Relay Division (time of 00:15:18.5) - Guess it's a good thing all those cigarettes they smoke on the show are herbal cigarettes, not tobacco.
