Part of a Folger Library exhibit on Jane Austen will be featuring the shirt worn by Colin Firth in the infamous Darcy Takes a Dip Scene from the beloved 1996 production of P and P. The New York Times reported it here and includes this incomparable line: 

"In the scene, Mr. Firth, playing the aloof Mr. Darcy, dives into a pond and emerges with the garment molded to his strapping physique."
