The outfit worn by a familiar character on a TV drama series will soon be part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the gray suit and fedora worn by Jon Hamm as Don Draper on AMC’s “Mad Men” will be added to the museum’s holdings in an official ceremony March 27.
AMC revealed that the artifacts from the show that will soon be museum pieces include the office bar cart along with an original script for the episode “The Wheel” containing an alternate ending.
“AMC also announced a variety of other ‘Mad Men’-related events,” EW notes. “These include: a ‘major exhibition’ at the Museum of the Moving Image, which will run from March 14 to June 14; a ‘Mad Men’ Reading List at the New York Public Library; a two-day film festival at BAMcinématek, ‘Mad Men’ at the Movies; and an event at the Film Society of Lincoln Center entitled ‘Mad Men: The End of the Era.'”
The show’s final season is set to launch April 5.
