Who Were the Wits?
The “wits” were the politicians, the poets, the scholars, and the orators of the Regency-Era in England. This time period was woefully short, ranging from 1811-1820, but the literature and political stances of the time still influence our society today.
Who Were the Beaux?
The “beaux” were the fashion-forward trendsetters who strived to make a statement with their appearance. They were part of the younger generation of high-society English aristocracy and lived their lives in extravagance. While this often meant lavish parties, balls, and questionable behavior, their taste in fashion continues to make waves. Like the beaux, many modern gentlemen are returning to the era of high fashion and embracing the world of refined style.
Like the wits and beaux of the Regency era, we believe in an emphasis on style and lasting materials. We’re here to provide you with the finest dress socks and bow ties sure to make you stand out on your next trip to the theater or even your next day in the office. Take control of your style, become that dapper gentleman, and embrace the fashion of the wits and beaux! We know you won’t regret it!
