ThisBlogRules put up these old record covers put together to create another image.

Inspired by Mad Men

My current addiction is the AMC Television Series: Mad Men. I just love the whole look of the 60's. The slim tailored suits, the super skinny ties and tie bars. With today being another typically boring day at work, here are some of the things that have caught my fancy which I feel capture the style of the Mad Men era.

from Hickoree's Hard Goods

J Lindeberg Baracuta G9/Harrington style "Travis" jacket at Tobi

Vintage Rotary Phone from Anthropologie.

Braun AB1 Quartz Travel Clock from The Shop at Cooper-Hewitt

Teroforma Whiskey Stones from Amazon.

leather lighter case from The-Glade

The Indiana Leather Dopp Kit from Gent Supply Co.

I really dig this subtle little gold key tie bar from Fine and Dandy

And of course the Limited Edition Mad Men Suit from Brooks Brothers

Vintage v.s Modern Design: Travel Posters

"Our design-minded friends at Grain Edit have thoughtfully rounded up a “handful of travel related posters from 1950s -1970s for all the desk jockeys that are itching to get out of town.”

They are simply stunning. Check out five of our favorites after the jump, along with some modern day counterparts we dredged up. Let us know if you feel more inspired by the old-school versions to update your passport. We certainly did." via Flavorwire

Vintage wins.
