Tuesday: Men's Fashion in Period Dramas - Period Drama Fashion Week

Okay, so when I talk about costuming, I mostly talk about women's fashion because (let's face it) men's fashion doesn't really change all that much and for the most part looks pretty similar. But I shan't neglect the men! So this post is dedicated to the different men's fashion in period dramas.

Georgian Era

Sir Percy, the best dressed guy at the party!
Wow, the man really can't tie his own cravat! :-p
 Regency Era
Well, with 10,000 a year, you would dress well too!
Mr. Knightley doesn't need to get his hair cut in London and is still better dressed than Frank Churchill!
An outfit fit for a king! (Okay, so Albert was never king, but you get my point! ;-)  )
Couple of nice dressed gentlemen here (though Cavaletto could use a haircut; maybe Frank Churchill can point him to a good barber?)
 Edwardian/Later Eras
Perfect suit for a flower show!
"I remember the time when I liked a red coat myself very well—and, indeed, so I do still at my heart"

Let's have a round of applause for period drama men! Who do you think is the best dressed man in the room?

 God Bless,
God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. Personally, I've always loved paying attention to the men's fashion in period dramas. I think the best dressed are Prince Albert (his red coat!!!), Mr. Knightley and Percy. =) And you didn't have him on here, but I really like Mr. Thornton's clothes from North and South.

  2. Well, Mr. Darcy obviously! But I have a fondness for men in long dark overcoats, so Arthur Clennam gets a mention too!

  3. Sir Percy of course!! No question about it! :) My second place favorites are Mr. Darcy and Matthew Crawley, with Prince Albert a close third.
