Other Costumes

Ashley Wilkes

Ashley Wilkes personifies southern gentility and chivalry. Leslie Howard's costumes in the beginning of the film reflect Ashley's gentlemanly character.

As the film progresses, his attire changes to a soldier's uniform and his gentleman's clothes turn to rags, reflecting the toll that the war took on the South.
