    I was just flipping through the channels and had to stop when I saw this: a drama about Beau Brummell! It's on the BBC America and it seems to be a drama about his life in society. Has anyone scene this?

    Ha! I was doing the same and watched it through. I bet myself that someone would raise it here. Interesting. The show seemed to portray his life as a metaphor for fashion - in one day, and out the next! He certainly simplified the general style of the day, though....anything to get away from powdered wigs and encourage more bathing!

    I was just thinking about mentioning it here. TBIT-Thank Beau for Trousers-breeches seem like they would be very hot

    SilkAscot might disagree, though.

    Worth watching..

    ..but not a classic.
    My fave scene is the fight in the street between the Fops and the Dandys.
