King for a day

Prince Charles may have been patiently waiting for some years now to be crowned King of England, but I’ve just noticed that he has been crowned as Esquire’s king of style.

Having thought about it, I am inclined to agree with the decision – especially as the magazine’s editor, Jeremy Langmead, has said that it was “the men who dress like grown-ups who really caught the judges’ eyes.” I think the statement has to be read in light of the fact that dwarf-like comedian Ronnie Corbett was selected as the esteemed runner-up (although, to his credit, he does like Lyle & Scott jumpers), but it is right that Prince Charles should be rewarded for his thoughtful approach to dressing.

Now you might think that his approach is too old-fashioned to be worthy of attention, but I think that where Charles really excels is in his ability always to look elegant. Every detail is clearly well-chosen and well-employed, and you’ll see from the above picture that his eye for colour is impeccable.

He may spend more than the rest of us on tailoring, but the simplicity of his style is something I think we could all learn from.

    A well cut suit is a British institution and His HRH wardrobe does send a smart statement to the world. The provenance of His wardrobe is impeccable and no doubt some suits have been retailored and reinvented for a sustainable wardrobe too. I love the guy.
