I find this interesting. What do you think about women who are fussed about their clothes? Do you pay attention to what Kate is wearing? If so, why don't you look at what William is wearing? If what one of them is wearing matters, why doesn't it matter what the other one is wearing, too? Or how much attention the man has paid to his appearance generally?

Please don't think I am asking these questions as any sort of attack, I honestly do find people's attitudes to clothing and appearance very interesting. I am interested in human behaviour, and this includes their attitudes to their appearance and adornment and the qualities individuals find attractive in the opposite sex.

I find a man who does pay attention to his appearance, especially one who wears something a little out of the norm for his social group, to be far more interesting than one who wears bland clothing. It makes me think he questions society's norms and doesn't mind standing out from the crowd, which usually translates to interesting personality traits. I find curiosity and a willingness to be different very appealing.

Don't ask me why, but I think that ensemble is quintessential Mike! His accessories are perfectly coordinated but not matchy-matchy.

I've always thought Mike was attractive. I prefer men who look masculine/rugged. Not a fan of the pretty boy look myself.

I have the same problem with the new style of slimmer shorts (versus the big baggy cargo shorts with lots of pockets.). Between my phone, keys, and wallet, they always looks like I'm carrying something inappropriate. I may need to start finding room for a flask though - I like that idea...

Mike looks good in that outfit, the dark blue goes nicely with the lighter shorts. I'm not so keen on that hat shape though!
Shorts are a bit of a problem for me as I am 5'9" (well 5'8" really....) and the cargo style are far too long and baggy for my legs. As such, the fitted shorts look much better, but as Jneugeba say's, where are you supposed to put all your accoutrements?

William is becoming the sport coat king! I now count the Blue twill, the tan windowpane and today's blue/grey windowpane.

And I think he's just had another haircut. At first I thought he had gone a bit sun blond, but it's just a cut.

Several times now he's worn the grey coat recently..a nice change from the blue.

Course for men, the choices of color are more limited.

This is actually grey and the other one sand/beige. Same pattern though :P Seems he found a jacket he liked and bought multiple colours :)

I think its extremely silly and worse in men than women. I And no I dont take that much notice of what Kate is wearing. She dresses blandly, and is very bland as a person. Except for special occasions like a wedding dress or a big public occasion, I dont notice what people are wearing. Why should I?
As long as people are clean and dressed in a sutiable manner for whatever they are doing...

Is Prince William taking fashion advice from Princess Kate?

Known for her love of both high street brands and rewears, Kate may be passing on some sartorial words of wisdom to her husband.

Recent months have seen William ditch his favorite navy suit for a more contemporary look of chinos and open-necked shirts (minus a tie!) that has had fashion insiders heaping praise on the usually conservative royal dad.

"I think he is reflecting a change in male dressing and rightly so," Robert Johnston, Style Director at British GQ tells PEOPLE, adding: "It's important that the royal family look relevant and a suit is just not an everyday thing anymore."

Daniel at yesterday's sports day

anytime he doesn't use a tie is a point in his favor, for me

today visiting a school
https://s16.postimg.io/hui6p4qjp/143...05561647_n.jpg
a bit too formal for this event, not sure the tie works with this light grey suit

Frederik on Sunday opening a new motorway
modern and sexy

Im liking this modern suit and pants combo

Probably reminding William of his time at school.

Such shoes are standard issue for teachers. They are issued a pair when they graduate and they turn them in when they retire.

I don't like the three tone outfit, but he does look a lot smarter.

Trudeau actually was once a High School (= European secondary school) teacher, incidentally in Vancouver. According to Wikipedia, he taught French and literature at a private school. He also worked as an actor once on a TV drama series about World War I.

Quite an ecletic fellow and a bit of a celebrity then, although that doesn't necessarily translate into good governing skills

Wasn't Ronald Reagan an actor before he turned to politics? And no fewer than 9 US Presidents were teachers.

Trudeau has been around politics in one way or another his entire life (literally; his father was PM when he was born), and has been increasingly involved in politics for the past 16 years or so.
