      In a book of 1830 by a cavalry officer on male dress, the officer takes
      exception to the saying that an interest in dress shows a lack of
      intellect.
      he refutes that by mentioning Byron
      "that great luminary of the present century, the immortal Byron , than
      whom , perhaps, no man ever more consulted or studied appearance,
      even in its most trifling minutiae, than he did.

      Compliment?
      Nancy
