The August issue of GQ is out and as to be expected, it is great. Just when you thought it couldn’t get better than the Summer Dresses Summer Suits story in July they hit you with Mr. John Slattery AKA Roger Sterling cloaked head-to-toe in plaid goodness.

    He looks yummy. Didn’t he play in Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives too? He’s pretty hot for an older guy. I like him even better than the Indiana Jones guy LOL

Seeing Hamm and Slattery out of character is always strange to my eyes, but the discussion offered good insight into where season two is heading.
