Men had an easier time at Court, though they still had to wear a fancy suit. It was made of equally expensive, beautiful material, very tightly fitted (requiring a valet to get them into the jacket) and probably uncomfortable. A man could also wear a small amount of make-up and a wig. He carried a hat that he never wore, and a sword that he never drew.

I am sad that later Victorian fashions became so dull and the peacocks of the Georgian period disappeared. Which reminds me of a quote about modern men by Minahil Jabbar:

“Being a man is hard, no wigs, no makeup, no lashes.
If you ugly, you just ugly”.
