The British royal men really like their stale suits. Charles's fashion hasn't changed much, but he carries himself in a very elegant and gentleman like way, and it shows in his style. It would be nice to see the younger royal men update their style. They can afford it!

I agree. It's strange how the British royal women follow fashions and trends like many other women in the country, yet the royal men don't. It seems to be a peculiarity to the royals alone, because there are plenty of male aristocrats and well-to-do folk who wear some of the most interesting fashions.

Well we shall see how long Harry's flirtation with beards continues. And he has appeared in a couple of double-breasted suits, but I think there is something more to clothes than wearing them. It comes down to confidence, flair, all the little idiosyncracies we take for granted.

As Charles is wont to say, he comes back into 'fashion' every decade or so. But it is also the little touches that keep him appearing on various 'Best Dressed' lists. His tie is almost always a perfect windsor or double windsor knot, and those ties bear watching. I have even noticed one or two of the more "on trend" cutaway collar shirts on him! He even wears a cravat with nonchalant ease.

One other thing I absolutely adore about Charles is that he actually uses a proper boutonniere, and they really are delightful, the only time he doesn't is when he is on tour or around remembrance days where poppies supplant them. His ties are complimented, not necessarily matched, by his ever elegant kerchief tucked nonchalantly in his breast pocket, none of those starched and ironed single or triple peaks for him!

He wears his clothes, his clothes do not wear him. I think that is why he is often overlooked in the sartorial stakes. Now Frederik, being that much younger than Charles, can wear the reincarnation of stove-pipe pants, whilst on Charles they would look ridiculous.

I agree about Charles. Pleasure to watch. Very elegant always. In a sense, always dresses 'the king'.

With hunting season in Denmark, lets look at the recent fashion hunting attire from Henrik's sons

Muhler has already shared with us Henrik's choices
https://app.box.com/s/j6r0labqctsq3he4gpaxz583ot8a60gl

Joachim has followed in his footsteps
http://www.billedbladet.dk/sites/bil...?itok=_4PK7rHz

Frederik thankfully has gone a less "stun-and-aw" route
http://aoh.dk/storyimage/AO/20151113...&MaxH=625&Q=95
looking quite handsome

No, they fall asleep, looking at Frederik.

It's much better to stun the animals, like PH is doing.

Or perplex the deer like Joachim is doing.



Here is a picture of two royal gentlemen in the shape of Frederik and Joachim: https://app.box.com/s/o2i6zoo03dx2rppbjw7ot9dgr9mvvmu7
Neatly dressed both of them, but observe and admire how Joachim takes it one notch higher.
The neatly folded, yet cheeky handkerchief, but especially the vest. Which prevents the shirt from showing when you only use one button. Two from me.

Of Frederik: https://app.box.com/s/jx4czz4ha6iol97jr4i3
That's more like it. No jacket, but a vest. Youthful, yet stylish. One

Here is an example of a mistake turning into cult. Notice Frederik's sock: https://app.box.com/s/z31n8ufy4e5i6qdsqjwe

This however is uncool. Is his jacket closed with a safety-pin?!? No, no, no! Two

Even though a belt is more practical, suspenders adds a certain gravitas, when one is wearing a shirt: https://app.box.com/s/0ctam4n74njw7t7cqjqh
One

Here Frederik and Joachim is going full farmer: https://app.box.com/s/ao5ajletkcdanrfnqp0n
Joachim's sixpence is appropriate, the rest...? Perhaps Mary and our Marie accidentally burned their husbands clothes, One can always hope. one

Beards are always preferable to stubbles! Or are they? Had This been the early 70's Frederik might have looked like this: https://app.box.com/s/64rtlmdnpgeaosxi0iyw

but Muhler the handkerchief does not go with the tie, a mix match
https://app.box.com/s/o2i6zoo03dx2rppbjw7ot9dgr9mvvmu7

Now, when the event calls for it
Casual yet professional is the way to go . very cool

sadly the hole in the sock tends to happen
Haakon this year
http://norwaytoday.info/uploads/news...2_ta954fe6.jpg
http://www.cdn.tv2.no/images/?imageI...est=58cbb72a3c
one has the excuse of being young and without a nice wife to throw those things away

But now that we are on Haakon
we really need to throw and burn these brown shoes.... He uses them all the time with suits that do not go...they look dirty and worn out
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zti0Mq4i1J...te-Marit-4.jpg
http://royalista.com/wp-content/imag...200_h=1200.jpg


but back to Frederik
his use of scarfs just adds the extra touch

I mean, this is just awesome
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-wWVhvN-jxA...s1600/0a12.JPG

Love his use of grey suits . it adds variety and stands out

Thanks for all these pictures guys!

When wearing a tie and pocket handkerchief, the colours don't need to match, but they do need to contrast nicely either in colour of pattern - for instance a blue and white stripe tie and a blue and white polkadot handkerchief or in Prince Joachim's case the colour of the handkerchief could have been darker with the gold.

Scarves really suit Frederik well as an accessory. I've tried this look myself but ended up looking a little, shall we say, foppish! Somehow Frederik still looks princely when he wears them!

That is an interesting tie! Prince Edward always wears a funky tie. He obviously got that from his Dad!

I have to say I do love the Windsor men in their morning suits and top hats for Ascot.

Prince Michael looking dapper

Prince Edward (and The Earl of Derby)

Prince Harry

A top hat just finishes the look and makes them look more handsome. I forget Edward has no hair when he has a top hat on!

One must never underestimate the advantages a topper presents a bachelor or any man for that matter:

It should be noted that Harry, in self-defence, saves those for family and friends. But interestingly, look how happy they all are to see him and he them.

Fanatics shall not be allowed to spoil our fun or ruin the mood of the forum.

Thanks Marg

I'm not familiar with wearing a top hats, so are the gentlemen expected to lift and hold their hats whenever a lady address them?

Thanks Molly.

Prince Michael indeed look stylish. That's the way to do it, combined with a well-groomed beard, from me.

And Prince Edward nails it too.

Prince Harry. Weeell, a bit bland. Considering his personality and age he could easily add some strong colors. Let out his inner hippie.
And I know it's angle of the photo, but one get's the impression that if Harry hadn't had ears he wouldn't be able to see anything.
