Young teenager wealthy, rude and manipulative, is an especially very safe character him!
Far from being a gentleman, he had to support his character by a well further fashion spirit, but that combines perfectly with the age group in which it evolves. Out therefore suit to Don Draper, and add to advantage of colors that will decide with the holding of the other characters, making this high school student a being apart from both her outfit than her personality

Also the fact that the series is going in the 1950s, the character of Draper by virtue of its function, must have an outfit that perfectly reflects his stature, pressing his charisma. A sober suit, perfectly ironed shirts, a whisky, and a cigarette: This is the best advertising of New York!
Unlike Chuck Bass, here is not the fortune we want to show, but more overbearing character, human truth, with high office in a prestigious Agency. No need to dress him up as eccentric as Chuck Bass, or even Gatsby, this is to paint the perfect gentleman of the 1950s.

Gatsby: The dandy of the prohibition
J. Gatsby is really special. Is not so much his outfit that made the character, but the universe in which it operates, as well as other actors, making it a top hero in colors.

Suits: the discreet elegance of the subtle genius
By their trades, the protagonists of Suits, are well forced to wear a tailored suit. However, where there is a big difference between them, it’s the choice of colors, hairstyles and postures each.
Remember you all first episode when Mike Ross, freshly hired by Harvey Specter, starts his first day with a suit too big and low-end…Harvey noted, and then refuses to take him into an appointment. It’s simple, the authors of the series were played on this kind of detail to show the hierarchy that exists within this firm.
Plus it is tailored, and the character stands right and is well capped, most you see a man who has an important post! And this mechanism is found in alot of movies or series, especially in House of Cards.

Barney Stinson: The perfect seducer
Barney Stinon, How I Met Your Mother crazy Minesweeper. This character has a personality that it is clean, it shows to her friends, and there are multiple characters that he creates for seducing women.
For Barney, the question is simple enough, how to show it in its true light? While simply doing wearing a suit. When we look at and see Barney in costume we know that it is him, while when her outfit changes, we know that it is a character.
To be able to easily differentiate these situations, the series team has played perfectly on its outside appearance.
But then why the costume? Quite simply, because it has an important position, and that his conduct is consistent with his beliefs. They are stupid or not, this does not fit into account, for Barney nothing beats a costume…except when we deceive, because in these cases there, fireworks are allowed.
Kinda like the devil who would appear before his subjects in its true form, and who is hiding behind a disguise to attract new followers.
The Director has played perfectly on this contrast.
Note from Jeremy: Finally, we have well seen in this article; in the series, social status and costume are often put together. All this is much less true in life, even if a nice well-cut suit will still often open the doors of your more traditional interlocutors.
What you should really remember all of this, is that your style can really change the look your entourage will have on you. You can through this become who you want, simply by changing pageantry. So, open your wardrobe and ask yourself the question: what do I want to be apparent today?
