Gilded

Brewer (54) defines Gilded Youth as “Wealthy and fashionable young men, principally engaged in the pursuit of pleasure.” That seems reasonably close to what Captain Corcoran must have had in mind. In his children’s version (132) Gilbert adds a footnote: “I should have thought he would have liked a gilded lordling, but you never can tell.”
