Beau Brummell, born as George Bryan Brummell (7 June 1778, London, England – 30 March 1840, Caen, France), was the arbiter of men’s fashion in Regency England and a friend of the Prince Regent, the future King George IV. He established the mode of men wearing understated, but fitted, beautifully cut clothes including dark suits and full length trousers, adorned with an elaborately-knotted cravat. Beau Brummell is credited with introducing and establishing as fashion the modern man’s suit, worn with a tie. He claimed to take five hours to dress, and recommended that boots be polished with champagne. His style of dress was known as dandyism.”

This video made me giggle. Apparently, men would come to watch Brummell get dressed–he was, after all, the King of Fashion in his days.
