Banana Republic's Mad Men collection now available

The US retailer's highly anticipated collaboration with the TV show's costume designer Janie Bryant hit the web Thursday and will be rolled out in stores over the following days.

Priced from $40 for a leopard-print silk scarf to $375 for a pin-striped men's suit, the 60-piece collection includes everything from trench coats, tailored dresses and high-waisted skirts to tie-neck blouses and pumps - all to channel your inner Don Draper or Joan Holloway.

Thanks to the suits' modern detailing or trendy animal prints for the women's clothes, the pieces manage to stay current and don't look costume-y, as many suspected prior to the launch. 1960s-inspired accessories such as fedoras, money clips, or pocket squares are also part of the range.
