No stranger to period drama, I have long admired the various incarnations of Mr. Darcy, Captain Wentworth, Mr. Knightley, and of course Mr. Thornton, among others.
But then I met Mr. Sidney Parker. Has men’s Regency fashion ever looked better than it does on Theo James as Sanditon’s Sidney Parker? I think not. That’s why I say he is the Greatest Of All Time period gentleman.
I realize this may seem like sacrilege to some Austen adaptation aficionados, but what better way to make my case than through video?
Did my video convince any Sidney-doubters? Maybe. Is it weird that I spent like a week making it? Absolutely.
(Apologies to Carly Simon … and Theo James.)
