We couldn’t help but notice a certain resemblance between Stan Rizzo’s outfit in promotional photos for Mad Men Season 7 and the iconic outfit worn by Jon Voight in Midnight Cowboy. Season 7 is widely expected to take place in 1969, and Midnight Cowboy was released in … 1969.

Of course, it could just be another coincidence. After all, in Midnight Cowboy, it was the other guy who was named Rizzo.
