Well they are nice pictures - and the womanizing French officer is certainly a stereotype of the era.

The eroticizing effect of uniforms is also well known, not just on women, but men too.

Girls in uniform are equally popular, maybe less so during the Napoleonic period..

Don't know what else to say, keep posting

Maybe you should put on a Hussar uniform, if you dress the part perhaps inspiration will follow

I thought that the stereotype cavalryman of the time was dashing and brave but dumb - like Conan Doyle's Brigadier Gerard "Gerard's most notable attribute is his vanity – he is utterly convinced that he is the bravest soldier, greatest swordsman, most accomplished horseman and most gallant lover in all France" He also does not have two functioning brain cells to rub together!

Dashing and brave and dumb are all positive I think, as far as gratuitous flirting is concerned

How did Gerard do with the ladies ? I read that several years ago, can't quite remember he details his romantic affairs all that much..

Iirc he does go on at length about his uniform.

That later era cavalryman Flashman seems to have managed very well with dashing and devious despite being a coward and a cad
