If clothes make the man — 
what is left when he undresses?

Beau Brummell is the king of fashionable society, a fact which torments the eldest son of Mad King George, who would do anything to be the master of the mode. With the help of his secret Catholic wife and Dick the Dandy-Killer, the rakish Prince has everything required to ruin his rival fashionisto. Will His Royal Highness survive the obsession, or will he be destroyed by his own yearning to outdo the Beau?

This honest tale of the Georgian/Regency era reveals the charm and cattiness of the two “first gentlemen” of one of history’s best-dressed moments. From Brummell’s ditzy quips of “Brummelliana” to the Prince’s overdramatic lamentations, the reader is sure to be swept up in a sparkling and humorous world of fashion, passion and jealousy.



Meet The Author
The idea for "Cut of the Clothes" came when I was writing a different Regency-era story, and I needed to look up a vocabulary term. The website that I found to provide the info that I needed, had a little video clip of the beginning of a BBC made for TV movie called "Beau Brummell: This Charming Man." I had heard of Beau Brummell before that time, but it was based on watching that opening credits sequence of James Purefoy as the Beau getting dressed, that I decided to write a story about Beau Brummell.

  1. Sounds interesting. I do like books set in this time period but I can't remember any that I have read having a strong focus on fashion. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I haven't read a Regency tale for ages! I like the idea of the fashion angle here too
