This suit is a perfect fit on Frederik - sartorial elegance at its best! The shade of blue is good and vibrant and the tie being a darker shade add enough contrast!

I've not worn a suit for years, now I want to buy a new one!

Ugh. I've said it before, but I'll say it again. They look like the slippers I wear around the house, not the dress shoes I wear with a suit and tie. I don't know why he keeps wearing them with a suit!

Frederik forgoing the use of a tie but still in a very nice suave suit
http://kongehuset.dk/sites/default/f...i-arabien1.jpg

with a lovey red and blue striped tie to complete the blue suit

Not liking Daniel's coat (too many buttons) but glad he didnt use a tie

and yes, I know, this is not important in this great occasion

I think he looked fine. I only think the jacket pulled a bit, but maybe it's only the illusion on his movements. It's actually quite a good mix of official and casual look!

I actually prefer Daniel's suit, because although Frederik has learned how to dress in recent years, the thing about suits with only button being buttoned, so the shirt can be seen - and in the case of a lot of men, bulging out - over his belt, doesn't look good. (Even worse if the tie is drooping.) For those who have special interest in belt-buckles that's of course fascinating but I find that it looks sloppy.

Not only that, there is obviously "water in the basement" at home in the palace, because his trouser legs are too short.

Wonder what he will do when the shoes are finally worn completely out?

Yes. Far too tight on the thighs that make the pants rise up and appear too short.
Those shoes

Frederik straight from the hot countries of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, where he looked close to perfection in his lovely suits and ties, and now on to Greenland.
Keeping warm with layers. I like his checkered shirt.
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=_4pz_h1T

and the stylish touch of wearing a nice scarf underneath to keep warm

http://imageupper.com/s02/1/3/F1457388207318200_1.png
Modern and great for his events at the Arctic Winter Games, of which he is patron of
and of course, always with that million-dollar smile

Good grief, it looks like Haakon takes the lead in the worst dressed men's category! The too small coat, the slipper shoes with what looks like goloshes and the mismatched trousers and, is that water in the basement just to finish the "look"?

Are we sure that Haakon is wearing galoshes and they are not so ghastly new pair of shoes we will never see the end of? It's hard to tell from the picture.

I'm not really sure what to say about the whole look. The jacket is too short, the trousers are unpressed and the dour colours seem unprofessional to me.

I don't mind Haakon going more casual in his style if he wants to, one can look clean-cut and smart in a pair of jeans and a nice crisp shirt.

Anyway, here's a couple of pictures showing Haakon perfectly dressed and looking his usual cool self:

I agree completely. this casual look is a disaster
Now those two examples are during professional photo-shots and Im guessing he had help in dressing appropriately

I think William got some new pants
http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/D...cj8-2UKBUl.jpg

Definitely looking more modern than with his tired blue suit

Whoah, I finally see a change in William's trousers! Something new at last! I guess I still have to get used to this novelty and I cannot pass my judgement on th new pants at the moment!

At last William has a go at "dressy casual". White dress shirt, blue tie, black blazer or is it a suit jacket, khaki trousers and brown (looks like) suede shoes. It's a strange amalgam of formal top half and casual bottom. I have to admit, I'm not feeling the love here!

It seems Will took a leaf out of uncle Edward's wardrobe and paired a jacket with some khakis.... (see the post on Edward's clothing in the Bahamas a few posts up!)

Khaki trousers should be a get-go look for many men; still, I find them odd on William.

This is not an unusual look at all in the UK. The only difference is that ties are used a lot less now than previously.

Yes this is definitely more modern and is worthy of being labeled as "news!!!"

I'm now convinced that there is only one blue suit in existence and the brothers are now sharing it!

And William is wearing the suit at today's visit to XLT.

Just in case you thought that this thread was only a "Worst Case Royal Men" thread, I thought I'd lighten the tone.

I had taken it for granted that Prince Daniel had totally succumbed to the Uniform Royal Blue, single-breasted, Straightjacket Suit Syndrome but, when I looked closer, I discovered Victoria's beloved Daniel is a wee bit of a royal rebel.

Now these are casual looks I wouldn't mind seeing again:
http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/P...Z0GXWXY3El.jpg
https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/i...rCiGn2WhIEIhoo

And not all blues are "Royal Men's Suit Blue".
https://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=i&rc...57833334219515

And here I found a grey suit which actually isn't a really great colour on him but at least it isn't blue:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-u8svQsx6qy...Victoria-7.jpg

And then a black suit which looks sharp, if a little severe/funereal:
Prince Daniel Pictures - Victoria And Daniel Of Sweden Visit Beijing - Zimbio

Then he snuck in a Uniform Royal Blue double-breasted suit:
https://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=i&rc...57833334219515

And then he snuck in a blue and grey pinstriped double-breasted suit:
http://www.marcussamuelsson.com/wp-c...nce-Daniel.jpg

And then I found a photo of him brown tweed double breasted suit though I'm not fussed on the dark blue tie he's wearing and really don't think he's a 'tweed' kind of guy:
https://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=i&rc...57833334219515

And then a debonair light grey tweed or marled double-breasted suit that sort of surprised me:
https://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=i&rc...57835689676519

And here a photo of a pretty cool looking family!

thanks, Daniel looks much better without a tie

Frederik tonight at the culture and arts ball
Lovely and stylish dark blue and black tux that fits perfectly
http://asset.dr.dk/imagescaler/?file...5-194334-l.jpg
nice added touch of the handkerchief, and of course that million dollar smile
http://sn.dk/modules/xphoto/cache/60...002_3456_2.jpg

without Henrik attending it was up to Joachim once again to bring in the velvet (lucky for us he followed in his brother's footsteps a bit and wore a darker jacket and not his red velvet one)
