Zack Pinsent

Elegance or Comfort: A Closer Look at Gentleman’s Banyans

Zack is a self-taught tailor and social media influencer profiled by the BBC.  He ceremoniously burned his last pair of jeans when he was 14-years-old and has not worn an article of modern clothing since. He operates Pinsent Tailoring in Brighton, East Sussex, England, crafting bespoke items reflecting fashion of the late 17th through early 20th centuries and shares his skills and passion with enthusiasts, students and new audiences.

Join Zack for this talk on the Regency gentlemen’s banyan as he shows the intimate details of this favourite piece of Regency mensware. Zack will look at the history, construction, and use of the banyan in the early nineteenth century.
