Hot Guys in Doublets: Mr. Tilney

I have been asked what movie is it where the guy wipes the dirt off the girl's cheek.

Answer: Northanger Abbey

One of my favorite Jane Austen books.
I love the innocence. I love the ghost story. I love the lost love and the found love. 
I LOVE Northanger Abbey

I LOVE Mr. Tilney!

He's so sweet. He's so patient. He's so forgiving.
Don't we all need a man like that in our lives?

Oh, and did I mention that he understands fabric and the value of a good dress?

I love Darcy as much as the next lady but if I was being courted by both...Tilney, hands down.
And that is saying a lot.

Have you seen the 2007 Masterpiece Theater's Northanger Abbey? You should. They did a fabulous job. Funny fact: this is the second third film version of this book EVER made. A shame. I hope people make more. 

Look what pavelchekov made: How cute is this?

Did you know that J.J. Feild (Mr. Tilney) is going to be playing the lead in Shannon Hale's Austenland? Yeah, I'm kind of excited about that movie.

(this picture is ACTUALLY from Austenland. It looks as if it was possibly taken without creative release- if it is not supposed to be circulated please let me know and I will remove it)

SO what have we learned?

We need to read Northanger Abbey.
We need to watch Northanger Abbey.
We need to stalk J.J. Feild.
We need to be watching for Austenland.

Class dismissed.

A blog called Hot Guys in Period Costumes. Wow, maybe all the good idea's ARE taken! :)
Anyways, great minds think alike.


  1. I'm ashamed to say I have neither read this, or seen it :-(

  2. I REALLY didn't like Northanger Abby when I read it but you've convinced me to give it another go. I think my favorite Austen is Persuasion.

  3. I have never read it. I too am so excited for Austenland! I enjoy JJ Field and other 'Hot Guys in Period Costumes'. Richard Armitage is my favorite - From North and South. If you haven't seen that one, you should. :)

  4. Ha ha... that first YouTube vid was pretty steamy for literature. I haven't read or seen Northanger Abbey, which is weird. It's probably the only Austen I've missed. I'll have to look it up.

  5. oh so hot, *drools*

    (BTW, I have a new blog!)

  6. Oh, I read this in college but have completely forgotten the plot... will have to revisit:)

  7. I love everything about this post. I concur with everything you said. Mr. Tilney, yum.

  8. I haven't read the books, but I sure do think the pictures are great! These hot guys in doublets posts are awesome!

  9. Oh, I don't know. I'm a big Mr. Darcy fan. And don't forget Colonel Brandon. Alan Rickman . . . *sigh*

  10. I am NOT a fan of Jane Austen, but... after reading the blog header I still decided to comment.

    Takes a lot of...gruff to say that and mean it.


    Oh and I came to this blog through my friend C.R. Ward from the blog Random Thoughts. I'm glad I did.

  11. Darcy is stuffy, Tilney is hot and adorable.

  12. Does your husband know about this obsession? Do you make him wear doublets from time to time? hmmm?

  13. Ha! I just learned about doublets a few months ago. They made their way into a now finished MS.

    Now I'm in the mood for Hornblower. :)

  14. Hehehe Tilney is awesome. I loved his snark. :-D
