The Regency era is when men’s attire really got it together. Gone were the gaudy silks and frills of the Georgian age. In their place came the muted tones and understated coats which let the man smolder instead of the brocade.
The Regency also ended the trend for men to have big hair. By the Regency, the era of high wigs and flowing, curly locks was over, although it would enjoy a brief revival with the hair bands in the 1980s. The Regency ushered in an age of close cropped hair with a sexy rumpled effect.
