On screen, Jon Hamm has the uncanny ability to go from a brooding ad man in Mad Men to wacky cult leader in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and still be downright charming in everything he does. And when it comes to his style, it seems to be the same: he looks just as comfortable in a perfectly cut tuxedo as he does in jeans and a tee shirt. His recent photo shoot for InStyle magazine has him modeling more of the latter, and just when we thought he couldn’t get any better, in his latest interview he confessed that he is not the kind of guy to leave a new haircut, sexy dress, or cool pair of shoes unnoticed on a woman.
“I’m a heterosexual male, and I love a lady with style,” Hamm said when asked if he pays attention to what women wear.
And just when you might have thought that you couldn’t love him more, when asked what type of style he preferred, Hamm went on to say that he’s happy with what a woman is wearing as long as she’s happy. “I think anything that serves to accentuate whatever your thing is and makes you feel good shows in the way you carry yourself,” he said.
As for his own style, he credits his Mad Men character, Don Draper’s sharp suit collection for influencing his own wardrobe. He was mostly “oblivious” to fashion until he landed the starring role in the retro drama. It opened his eyes to a whole new way of dressing—namely, one that was a little more cut-conscious. “I started to buy clothes that fit,” he told the magazine.

In the accompanying video Hamm says that he owns a lot of nice clothes at this point in his life, but doesn’t “necessarily get all fancy” for nights out. “I like to be comfortable as well.” He jokes that his signature scent is a mix of “dreams and aspirations probably and a little bit of wet clay, dog hair and the north wind.”
If you’re currently searching your social media channels to get more Hamm in your life, you won’t find him — he has no public social media profiles. “The point of life is not to put dog ears on yourself and post it online for everyone to see,” he said. “”It’s fun, it’s adorable, but it’s the visual equivalent of masturbating—there’s no point other than immediate gratification.”
Instead of on the web, you’ll find him playing league baseball on the weekends and crying in the theater at plays or a dance performances. “I’m just blown away by the beauty of it all,” he says. “Especially when I see anybody performing at the peak of their ability. I see it, and I f—ing weep.”
