By Megan Collins | Last Updated: Aug 13 2015

Guy Richie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E may be this summer’s most stylish movie. With its two leads (Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill) sporting serious Don Draper dad bods, this 1960s spy flick remake nails that masculine yet refined style we’ve come to associate with the era of Mad Men and JFK.

Think you can’t update these swinging secret agent wardrobes to look fresh in 2015? Think again. We’re here to show you how to steal their seriously stylish looks.
