Did not realize how important it was for gentleman to point their feet in a V-shape. I must confess, if Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy walked into the Pump Room without such effort, I should still think him a fine, fine gentleman. (Mr. Theroux, indeed, looks quite well himself).
As Theroux's video notes, Bath is a beautiful and romantic city and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit back in 2006. During a family vacation to London, we made a day trip to the city touring the Roman baths and the famous Pump Room.

Theroux's instruction on becoming a modern day Regency gentleman is a tribute to Bath and those who keep Austen history alive for us to experience. I'm ready to go back anytime - but when I do, I'll pay more attention to how the gents are pointing their feet.
