Hey Ladies!

Wondering what to get your sweet baboo for Christmas? How about a mantique to stuff in his man cave?

Acting upon the assumption that every modern male secretly wishes it were still the 1950s, architect Douglas Wright will help furnish a space where everyman can pretend he’s Don Draper:

Among the retreats Mr. Wright has created for clients are a home theater with a polished mahogany bar; a den with a putting green outside; and a garage with a big-screen television that can be viewed from the comfort of a car. Most “definitely have a masculine look,” he said, with hefty furnishings and features like dark wood paneling. “A lot of them have the feeling of a lodge.”
