A Guardian video on How to become a modern Mr. Darcy:

Bath's reputation as England's most romantic city is down to its most celebrated resident - Jane Austen. Marcel Theroux gets into character on the literary heritage trail by donning Mr Darcy's garb and manners, and attending a regency ball at the Bath Pump Room.

From Eloisa James' Facebook page, and, like her, I pictured the breeches MUCH tighter!

Thanks for sharing that, I really enjoyed it. I agree about the pants, I thought they would be tighter also and not made of a cotton material but something more expensive looking.
