    The Many Spin-Offs of 'Mad Men'

    AMC's (AMCX) drama about New York's advertising industry in the 1960s has an obsessive fan base, eager to reclaim some of that era's glamor (and presumably, none of its regressive social norms). From walking tours to fashion to toys, here are some official and unofficial Mad Men spin-offs.

    'Mad Men' Bride

    There might not be a worse model for marriage than that offered by Mad Men, but '60s glamor can cloud a bride’s view of the show’s catastrophic unions. David Tutera, wedding planner and host of We tv’s (AMCX) My Fair Wedding, offers Mad Men-inspired nuptials.

    'Mad Men' Cocktails Experience Tour of NYC

    On this tour, you can walk down Madison Avenue, visit some New York landmarks, and visit at least three bars featured on the show, all for $150 per person. The package's greatest inaccuracy: It includes but one drink at each stop.

    'Mad Men' Tour of … Pittsburgh?

    An article in e-magazine POP City suggests a city tour based on an alternate universe where Mad Men is set in Pittsburgh. That's one way to suck the soul out of the show—Don Draper would more likely work in the steel business than advertising. The circuit includes stops at the Fairmont Hotel, Braddock’s Bar, and the Capital Grille.

    In February 2012, Jaeger-LeCoultre (CFR:VX) released a Mad Men edition of its Reverso watch, featuring the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce logo. Only 25 were made and they have already sold out, at $8,450 apiece. The timepiece comes in a walnut box with the SCDP logo, a letter from fictional partner Roger Sterling, and a copy of his autobiography, Sterling’s Gold, autographed by flesh-and-blood Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner.

    AMC’s 'The Pitch'

    AMC’s new ad agency competition—kind of like Mad Men meets reality TVpremieres on April 30. AMC tells Bloomberg Businessweek that the show was not born out of Mad Men at all. Um, really?

    'Mad Men'-Themed 'Newsweek'

    Timed to the show’s season premiere last month, Newsweek published a 1960s-style magazine, including retro ads. “The content of this issue is new, and about today, but there are echoes aplenty from the past, all uncannily like the present,” writes Editor in Chief, Tina Brown.

    The Unofficial 'Mad Men' Cookbook

    The '60s encouraged showy, complicated food that mixed French influence, suburban spousal devotion, vegetarian curiosity, and ethnic cuisine, according to foodtimeline.org. Thankfully for the cooking-challenged, The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook also provides a bunch of cocktail recipes.

    Banana Republic’s (GPS) spring Mad Men collection that launched in March features a cap-sleeve dress, cardigans, lace shell blouses, and coral-cropped capris for women. The men’s line includes navy blazers, argyle vests, and bright polos, and may leave buyers wondering why they still don't look like Jon Hamm.

    Estée Lauder 'Mad Men' Collection

    On March 18, cosmetics maker Estée Lauder (EL) launched a limited edition Mad Men collection that features a red lipstick and rouge. As Don Draper says to his Belle Jolie lipstick clients: "Every woman wants choices, but in the end, none wants to be one in a box of a hundred. You are giving every girl who wears your lipstick the gift of total ownership."

    In July 2010, Mattel (MAT) launched a Mad Men Barbie doll line featuring Don Draper, Betty Draper, Roger Sterling, and Joan Holloway, with a suggested retail price of $75 each. Alas, the dolls come without cigarettes, ashtrays, martini glasses, and cocktail shakers, reported the New York Times.
