“Gentleman Jack” – What the Wardrobe Reflects

The most interesting aspect of the fashion in the BBC series Gentleman Jack, which just aired its second season on HBO, is the style choices made by costume designer Tom Pye for actress Suranne Jones, playing 19th-century lesbian landowner Anne Lister, master of Shibden Hall in Halifax, West Yorkshire. Pye, who has also designed costumes for a TV movie also created by Sally Wainwright, To Walk Invisible (2016) about the Brontë sisters, has been inventive in showing class, power and trends of the times.
