I think the best dressed man is Prince Charles! No doubt about that! Honestly though, I quite like the eccentric looks of Prince Joachim!

I definitely agree that Prince Henrik and Prince Joachim of Denmark have the most eccentric style. King Philippe of Belgium can also wear some interesting outfits sometimes!

I don't pay that much attention to the men's fashion though to know who is the best dressed, but I often think King Felipe of Spain looks smart and I like Prince Carl Philip of Sweden's style.

I love the eccentric style of Joachim . It is not usual that you expect to see. Sometimes funny, but I like it. I think Prince Charles and King Felipe the most well-dressed.
On the other hand not to say dowdy but his style is alwayw so unwrinkled so official even and casual appearances. I mean the Prince Daniel.

Harry looks good in just about anything he wears. He is comfortable too in what he wears and doesn't worry about them and gets totally involved in what he is doing. I really had to smile seeing Harry getting down on his knees to kid level. Kids just naturally warm up to the guy even to the degree that one asked if he is a clown. Like a clown, he does spread happiness wherever he goes.

Well, now, as is known I am one of Harry's biggest fans. However, I don't think good tailoring or clothing in general is one of Harry's main interests. There was a certain notorious blue suit, before this one, which he wore constantly. I don't like saying this but sometimes it looked as if he'd pressed it himself, and not very well at that.

On a few occasions, I am sorry to say, it looked as if he'd dropped it on his bedroom floor the night before and just picked it up and put it on. It was his favourite suit and he wore it everywhere formal when he wasn't in a tux or in uniform. I used to say that if he got lost on his way to engagements the suit could have known the way by itself!

It got so bad that I, and other Harry admirers, jokingly suggested writing to him asking that the suit be donated to a charity bin ASAP!

I agree that Charles's tailoring is always immaculate. Although Harry doesn't possess valets like his father, it does look as if he has turned over a new leaf and bought a new suit, perhaps with Charles's advice. I am hoping he turns over a new leaf with regard to the care of it as well.

Still love you, Harry!

Well, a suit fit for a man 45 +, rather not for a person in his early 30s...
IMO Harry should consult the CP of Denmark who´s always dressed distinguished but still not like he was already about 60...

I think in relation to clothing, Harry doesn't care much because he is simple and super stripped (I don't know if that's the right word in English), for me he is always flawless, perhaps the great admiration I have for him doesn't allow me to find fault in it. And I think he so gorgeous, which to me everything he wears looks good.

Purple pants, too. But I do like the Crown Prince Frederick. He is one cool dude! Harry could emulate him to good effect, though I like Charles' influence myself.

To be honest, I hope he never emulates anyone else. I love Harry just being himself.

Well, having discussed the sartorial wonder that is Harry, some thought his always wearing blue suits boring compared to Freds more modern suits, so:

Black, it seems, is reserved for royal funerals;

Here's Harry, glitter notwithstanding, what's wrong with his suits?;

The only obvious difference I can see is that the BRF men do not wear the cutaway shirt collars or pointed shoes that are more on trend in Europe. I think the only royal who consistently wears anything other than blue is Prince Charles with his penchant for grey and most of them are double breasted.

Harry is wont to undo his jacket and put his hands in his pockets and Frederik is wont to stand in the military 'at ease' manner with his hands behind his back. Unfortunately, the (UK/European) habit of only doing the top button up pulls the jacket open above and below the button.

And just to prove there are always exceptions;

Hmm, this is opening up a whole new world to me because like a lot of other people I haven't followed the gents' clothing much before and one tends to think "dull, ill-fitting suits" and I always though Frederik looked great whatever he wears.

But in the photos above (thanks Marg), I can see that both Fred and Harry have their good days and bad days, just like the royal women!

Harry's dark blue suit with blue tie looked fantastic, really smart and impressive. Blue suits him better than grey I think.

I do prefer Frederik's style as he mixes and matches things up a bit. But he can look a little scruffy at times with his hands in his pockets etc. Even so, that is sometimes preferable than to stand too formally (and uncomfortable-looking) with hands behind back unless he is standing to the national anthem or something.

With regard to casual-wear, the British princess seem to very conservative.

ETA - here is a pic from the Mirror newspaper of William and Harry helping out on DIY SOS:

Harry actually looks pretty cool.

He is his father's son. Makes sense he would take after his father.

Today Harry visited the Paignton Rugby Club

I see that men's suiting suffers from the same colour and shade problems as their female counterparts - indoor or outdoor lighting and taken with or without flash.

The photos above were taken on the same day, wearing the same clothes. The tie is what gives it away. In the first engagement, the photos are taken outside and the suit looks greenish grey, his shirt nondescript creamy white and his tie a bit of fuzzy pallid blue.

Later in the day, photos taken in the Box show him wearing his lovely blue, almost linen weave, suit and the same beautiful blue geometric tie, showing he's wearing exactly the same clothes. The tie is what is the evidence! Well, that and a pretty solid belief that Harry has not become so sartorially precious as to run home and change his suit and tie between the two daytime events.

All this makes me wonder how many other guys we've dissed for their lack of elegance.

I was thinking the same thing yesterday! It happens quite often Quite often in the women's fashion threads when and the same outfit can look completely different depending on the light and even the camera angle!

I think that's one of Henrik's more luxurious oriental-styled jackets isn't it? He has quite a selection, I believe, including a purple satin number. I suppose it's all a tribute to his years in Vietnam, and they are probably very comfortable to wear. Tuxedos can get a bit boring!

Thanks, Spheno

Let's look some more at PH's attire.

We will start quietly with a tie only PH could away with wearing: https://app.box.com/s/dn52wc9vujerzh34vtmu6h9mmb4c0wok
But stylish, that it is!

Moving on, let's marvel at this jacket: https://app.box.com/s/jhc7g0ijam1zhg0uwe12wle4gjpy75pl

One of his Hugh Hefner jackets. Very practical when one has become... eeh... has become more rounded and mature: https://app.box.com/s/fsznlzv8u6asrnv4o0y0d9bun0e10hn2

PH belongs to those men who are not afraid of wearing necklaces:
https://app.box.com/s/nctykb7yzovc2cr83iqld1ty7ptfqs4p
https://app.box.com/s/2earlwicmppvj35oq40t4aeul1cmr8yj

PH is a man who is always dressed up for hunting:
https://app.box.com/s/j6r0labqctsq3he4gpaxz583ot8a60gl
Even now, several years later there are still deer, foresters and small dogs who receive therapy after seeing those stockings.

PH is also one of the few gentlemen whose headgear wear him, not the other way around, as you can see here: https://app.box.com/s/tm11qk2qa9bb4wqsf7mnp9p9g6j0ngb8

However, this attire, although being slightly inspired by the national costume of the Faeroe Islands, is so far unsurpassed! Had Liberace seen this he would have been green with envy:
https://app.box.com/s/nlbd2iz8zvn59aiadws602qzu19yzt0v
To fully describe this outfit would require words not yet invented in any language.

I love Henrik's outfits! The unusual outfits tell me he has a personality. I'm drawn to eccentrics. I'm sure I'd argue with him about certain things like why he should not be king, but at least he's interesting! So much more interesting than those boring blue suits that William and Harry wear. I can't stand that mid-blue shade for suits. I favour charcoal or black. If they must wear blue, make it navy!

Quite

Fortunately PH has two sons...
While Frederik, expect for the odd red pants, haven't really come out of the closet yet, so to speak.
Joachim has on several occasions given in to his inner hippie.

There is of course the now legendary camouflage tuxedo:
https://app.box.com/s/7car9362gg2tjouogbqn1ixwimxkk5hw

Then there are times when he goes into Bond mode and dress up as his favorite villain, Dr No.
https://app.box.com/s/n1ma66mmdopz2cz6v1ifwbwz812gc163
https://app.box.com/s/g01sdcixosrzd622e0bnvppygofjbeyu

Just like his papa, Joachim also favor casual evening wear, like this jacket:
https://app.box.com/s/9s415ceuhgxhlkl4y2ckiq9vfbj6q1zr

That applies to pants as well, like these pale red pants:
https://app.box.com/s/fpddc89i5rfbv0t6ldm9oxffpzlhz6dq

However, being a gentleman Joachim also dress up for hunt. Here he and his father are wearing very stylish ties:
https://app.box.com/s/h0e3la0o9128nl15brppbtuvtaelfh73

There are naturally other gentlemen within the DRF.

Like Nikolai: https://app.box.com/s/cbmhpvq2h3gidrossg6zcq1cjgx7vthr

Or Frederik in full wedding gear, complete with a noticeable vest:
(Large file) https://app.box.com/s/ix3ka21l2325aewlmzq6k77cvnn86knf

But such a thread needs to include uniforms.
Joachim in full dress uniform of the army: https://app.box.com/s/0ee4krs7hcjz439lvj6lidsd3oeq3z2k

And in the gala uniform of the army: https://app.box.com/s/wbfh4wdlz8t5mwyhligqljlokty0fxkc

Frederik prefers the navy uniform.
Here the dress uniform of the navy: (Large file) https://app.box.com/s/8dz69s2n2gurhofw0d63yeyx8y2qm2ub
