George Bryan Brummell (June 7, 1778 March 30, 1840), better known as Beau Brummell, was an arbiter of fashion in Regency England and a friend of the Prince Regent. He led the trend for men to wear understated but beautifully cut clothes, adorned with elaborately tied neckwear. Brummell is credited with introducing and bringing to fashion the modern man's suit worn with tie. The suit is now worn throughout the world for business and formal occasions, even though its origin is England..
