I don't mind the green pants and brown shoes, but they don't work with the checked jacket and white shirt and black tie. He's wearing a different outfit on each half of his body. There's a story there, and I'd love to know it. Or else he has appalling taste in clothes and shouldn't be allowed to make his own choices.

It's a very Metro look. Good for him nudging the sartorial box. And I bet there is green and brown in the coat.

I am all for colored pants but that color green doesn't work with the rest.
And those shoes are awful

It is just possible that Prince William did not wear THE blue suit today. http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/...re-id510596156
If so, I may need the air ambulance!

My age is showing; I don't know what a "Metro" look is. Metropolitan? In my metropolis, men wear suits, not that sort of thing, so that can't be what it means.

But if there's green and brown in the coat, I'll be a lot happier, though I still have reservations about the white shirt and black tie.

Looks like charcoal. Nice. But he spoilt it with a blue tie.

Well we couldn't expect him to go cold turkey could we? He would go through withdrawls if he didn't have some blue

Is this the beginning of a new look for William, and hopefully perhaps for Harry too?

With regard to Haakon's outfit, it would have coordinated a bit better if he'd worn black shoes or shoes of the same kind of basic grey as the jacket IMO.

Totally agree about Haakon. If that jacket is indeed grey and doesn't have green and brown in it, black or dark grey shoes would have made the outfit acceptable.

A day that goes down in history!
Perhaps Kate finally burned the only other suit he had?

In DK this combination is known as "standard state-school-teacher-outfit number two". (There are only three outfits to choose from.)

That's what happens if some men are allowed to dress themselves or perhaps Frederik bit him?
Haakon is simply the sort of man who when he comes out from the shower is used to having his clothes laid out for him on the bed.
Somehow this didn't happen and Haakon thought: Oh, I'll just pick something myself. How difficult can it be?
And this is the result!

Indeed.
We have established that Haakon always have his clothes laid out for him, because he is the kind of man who would wear black socks and sandals to the beach.
And that leads us to theory number two: Three years ago he and Mette-Marit had a row and she decided to get even with him.
The other day she decided it was payback time! So she laid out this... eh... combination for him on the bed knowing that Haakon will automatically put on anything, absolutely anything, that is selected for him!

Or theory number three, which will be confirmed if Haakon is seen wearing more of these... novel outfits. He is doing a reversed Joachim/Daniel. I.e. dressing down.
It's a phenomenon that often afflicts men in their late 40's. They know perfectly well they are not young anymore and they know they will look silly if they try to dress young. (Perhaps he has seen Frederik and decided: I want to look casual as well!)
So instead they dress in clothes that are "youthful" and "casual" in order to appear fresh, hype, and groovy - even getting the slang wrong...
And if the wives do not step and take drastic actions immediately men like that, which Haakon now appears to have joined, will happily wear all sorts of weird outfits in public. - They can't help it.

Thanks for making me giggle, Muhler.

I happen to think that men like Haakon and Frederik should be allowed to go where their muse leads them. If I had to choose between Haakon's strange combinations or Frederik's red pants or Joachim's red velvet dinner jacket, and William's blue suits, I'll take the eccentric choices over the boring any day. Far more interesting and endearing!

With regard to Haakon's green and grey outfit, believe me, that colour scheme does not work - I should know because it's the kind of mismatching that I used to do all the time!

As a pattern combination, it would be great - for instance a green and grey check - but also, that particular green of the trousers is as dull as the jacket and two dull colours together don't look right!

Yes, Frederik is learning.

However, his shoelaces... Are they in a different color from his shoes?

Frederik is looking cool and sophisticated these last days on his trip! I love the casual shirt and light coloured trousers, but not so sure about wearing black shoes with it.
