I noticed that a lot of the men wore double-breasted jackets.
Yup, this is the era of the double-breasted jackets. For Roger Sterling, it was a perfect opportunity to show all the changes he went through last season by having him wear that bright new double-breasted jacket. And for him to wear separates instead of a suit is a big step, too.
You were saying that Harry is sort of a douchey dresser, and so is Pete, but not to the same degree.
Pete’s always been a pretty elegant dresser, and his sideburns are a sign of the times. He also wore a matching tie and pocket square in this episode, which is just meant to show how meticulous he is, and how his position in the office has become more authoritative.
What kinds of materials did you research from this era when you were coming up with the costumes?
I always watch a lot of movies and look at magazines and catalogues from that time, like Sears, JC Penney, Spiegel’s, McCall’s, Good Housekeeping, Ladies Home Journal, Holiday magazine, and Look magazine. Old issues of GQ and Esquire are good resources for menswear, also. Then of course I have many, many costume history books.
10. Do tell me how adorable our Basketball team is.I mean they’re freaking precious. That Shane Southwell smile gets me every time. Oh, and does your team have moves like Martavious or Will? I didn’t think so!
11. Do be my designated driver.
Remember when I picked you and your girlfriends up the other night when you were having a “Sex in the City” Marathon? Yeah, payback is a bitch.
12. Don’t mention the sheep bins by the stadium.
Yes, we all see them. Ignore them, I don’t need to be reminded how hickish we are.
13. Don’t complain about me being gone every weekend.
Get use to it, and enjoy your freedom from me. (I can only imagine how tiring it would be to date me.) Last year alone, I was in Miami, Dallas, and Pittsburgh for games. This might be a good time to prospect for other suitors in case things get rocky.
14. Don’t ever make a negative comment about Bill Snyder.
I don’t know how you could, but unless you want to be heckled, just shut your mouth. I will not back you up if this happens.
15. Finally, don’t ever tell me “they tried really hard, maybe next time” after a loss.
Seriously, I have dropped a girl for this. I need time to grieve, and you’re just pouring fuel on the flames of my grief. Give me some time–I’ll get my sh** together eventually.Listen people, I know I might be a bit of a special case when it comes to dating a K-Stater. Truth is, The Football season starts September 1. That’s the day before my birthday, so I just thought I’d give the next girl up a scouting report on me—and for dating like-minded K-State fans as well.As for me, and K-Staters like me, there are just a few choices: stay single, marry a K-Stater, or marry someone out of the family that can follow the rules. I’m the last one to carry the Fanning name, I’ve gotta make this count.
