What was fashionable for men in the late 1700s? Extravagant colors and fabrics and outrageous styles. Take a look at their suits, hats, accessories and bedroom fashions. Strictly speaking, the Georgian Era might include all the years that a ‘King George’ ruled in England, but for the purposes of this book the ‘Georgian Era’ is primarily the late 1700s when mad King George III ruled. His son became Prince Regent in the early 1800s, therefore creating the years known as the Regency, and became George IV on the death of his father.
- The Georgian years officially ended with the death of King George IV in 1830.
- George I ruled 1714-1727
- George II ruled 1727-1760
- George III ruled 1760-1820
- George IV ruled 1820-1830

Gentlemen were expected to wear extravagant court dress, but the working class despised these luxurious fashions and royal overspending.
