John Slattery plays Roger Sterling in Mad Men (2007 - 2015).
The face of one of the most prestigious advertising agencies in New York between the 1950s and 1970s, Roger Sterling represents, through his wardrobe, the aesthetic values of those years. An impeccable sartorial taste is the corollary to a character, in some ways controversial, who rides the wave of the vibrant post-war ferment. Precisely in the two decades 1950-1970, the United States laid the foundations for the construction of their economic power, using clothing to communicate the ever increasing well-being.
Sterling declares her personality and social status through perfectly cut three-piece suits, shiny shoes, and the well-made ties and his attitude as a resolute and somewhat dandy man.
