Thomas Hardy: Cool Hunter?

by yayayanonono

From The Return of the Native: “To his astonishment there stood within the room Diggory Venn, no longer a reddleman, but exhibiting the strangely altered hues of ordinary christian countenance, white shirt front, light flowered waistcoat, blue spotted neckerchief, and bottle green coat.”

That’s a good look for men. And it reminds me of the green from this post.

Below, a picture of a different, but equally handsome,  Diggory Venn.
