to have found the sight of dh and his friend in 18th century frock coats really quite stirring?

we went to a stately home and they had costumes you could try on (as well as lots of pictures of well known actors appearing in 18th C. costume dramas...) I think the costumes were mainly for children, but there were some adult ones (presumably for parents to entertain their children...not sure you'd be brave enough to do it if you didn't have kids....)and dh and friend were transformed. one minute I was with a couple of pleasant enough guys in jeans and t-shirts....next minute there were these gentlemen, who were clearly loaded in their rich brocade, clearly sophisticated, educated...and quite possibly up for walking me across the lawns and playing a rather daring game of hide and seek in the maze...

AIBU aren't I?

I am not in the least surprised. When I was younger I used to do historical re-enactments and there was always a lot of sex. Bet you would garner a surprising amount of male attention if you were wearing the equivalent female dress, as well.

I think I was born in the wrong era and the wrong social class...

my dh wore a velvet frock coat when we got married

with a green silk cravat and his two-foot-long hair loose <swoon>

there is something unfailingly sexy about the in-out shape of frock coats

Yes I'd have been a scullery maid unfortunately. Even that may be a bit ambitious.

I would also find it quite stirring I think smile

Wrong era for me, I'm afraid, but whatever floats yer boat.
Great title, btw - couldn't not respond!

Ooh I love that era. Were they all Ross Poldark-esque then? <<dribble>>

DH has no hair, he could never carry it off envy

kathyis6incheshigh Tue 28-Jul-09 13:58:50

Madeyeballs, couldn't he wear a wig? That would be v authentically 18th c. smile

Ooh, I'm loving the sound of this. My DP would really suit that look too, I reckon.

DjangoTheDjinn Tue 28-Jul-09 14:08:39

My dh grew his hair long (natural ringlets too) and wore a frock coat at our wedding. Oh my.

Giles Coren puts on a frock coat and I have Inappropriate Stirrings. It's wrong but I cannot help it.

MadEyeballsMoody Tue 28-Jul-09 14:09:12

True, but it'd probably be a grey powdery one. Ugh

bella21 Tue 28-Jul-09 14:11:07

I have a pash for Giles too...blush
