    Fop became a pejorative term for a foolish man overly concerned with his appearance and clothes in 17th century England.

"Macaroni" was another term, of the 18th century, more specifically concerned with fashion. A modern-day fop may also be a reference to a foolish person who is overly concerned about his clothing and incapable of engaging in intellectual conversations, activities or thoughts.
