Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons in Brideshead Revisited 1981

I'm very much feeling the beautiful costumes in the original Brideshead Revisited television series produced by Granada Films in 1981.

It starred a Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews and based on Evelyn Waugh's book of the same name, published in 1945. The costuming was done by Jane Robinson.

Maybe it's due to the influence of the recent "The Bucketeers" editorial in last Sunday's New York Times Magazine. I have to say Englishmen do look dashing in their bespoke suits.
