I have to confess I like them, but that's probably because I like in a climate that they couldn't possibly be worn and Mr Darcy just sells it!

Mythosidhe said...

Personally, I love these, although none of the menfolk in my circle of acquaintances is likely to be seen wearing them :( They're all either too poor to consider buying such a thing, or completely disinclined to have anything to do with fashion!

Lady Ashley said...

Yes please! Would that frocks and cravats returned to fashion. It would be a lot easier than inventing a time machine.

W. A. Mozart said...

Yea! Modern men need to acquire some taste.

Tinka said...

Definitely jay! Unfortunately I assume, those designs will not make it to the highstreet shops. :(

The Gentleman said...

Yes! I love frocks [in fact I wear one regularly], I think they add a bit of elegance to any outfit with their longer line and smooth drape.

I'm glad they're coming back some [or at least getting some press]

Christine Walker said...

nay, they look like costumes, not clothes. I think they would wear the man and not the other way around.

Comtesse Olympe de la Tour D'Auvergne said...

Yay!I think they're splendid, and I wish more men would wear them.

Melanie said...

I love them--especially the dark with velvet collars. I could NEVER talk my husband into them, though.

Katy said...

OMG HOT.

Tulip said...

Agreed, HOT!!!

Heather Carroll said...

I would be all over a man in a coat like that. I am such a sucker for men in fashionable attire.

Haetorigusa said...

Oh my *fans self* I die for men in historical frocks! I love it, please lets return to cravats and boots and the age of gentlemen. I don't think they look like costumes at all. <3

Rosel said...

The burberry ensembles are very nice.
*takes notes* I have a boyfriend to dress for a steampunk con >:D

YSLGuy said...

I would love it. Maybe Ill pick one up. I saw a great looking one at H&M recently.

Patti said...

Definitely yes! Matthew MacFadyen wears it best, with the open shirt, the boots, the mist . . . yes.

But when my husband puts one on, he looks more like a mobster than a Darcy. :D

Heather Carroll said...

Mobsters work too!

Sarah C said...

YAY! Wow, lovin' it.

Jill said...

Nice!

Nadia said...

OMG YES PLEASE PLASE PLEASE

Sarah said...

Oooh la la! I'll definatley try to wrestle one onto my fella!

Ninon said...

YAY! I love men in frocks!!

Blair said...

The Burberry collection is to die for! :)

<3

Matthew MacFadyen is the hottest Darcy of all time, IMHO. I think Mr. Darcy is a sexy literary character, period, but Matthew just rocks it.
On the fashion pix, though, it's hard to weigh in. I love the creative concept of fashion, but I detest the industry and that always prevents me from getting on board with it. The little pups under Matthew, for instance, are just a big yawn in my book.
