He can and should do better. It was humid, today. Still, there are better fabric choices. JMO.
It looks like the pants are falling down.

OMG that is not a good look . . . I was so busy looking at the top half I missed the gravitational pull of his trousers.

There is nothing wrong with double-breasted suits. Charles looks fantastic in them and Harry cuts a really a fine figure when he wears one.

Andrew always looks like a businessman and, pretty sharp to be honest and Edward is also not a sartorial slouch.

Schlager-singer-jacket with black piping - check.
Handkerchief in the pocket - check.
A vest, appropriate for an elderly gentleman - check.
Necklace-thingy, appropriate for an eccentric gentleman - check.
But no watch in a chain - uncheck.

Actually PH on that warm evening reminds me of this beer commercial of "The Thirsty Man". - A fully attired late 1800's gentleman.
No wonder they died like flies on hot summer days back then, with all that clothes!

Oh thank the heavens! I thought maybe he was ailing.

Absolutely.
Double-breasted looks best, except for the most well-rounded gentlemen...
The problem with single-breasted suits, especially for gentlemen who are beginning to develop a pub-muscle, is that the belly and tie has a tendency to poke out beneath the button. So double-breasted is a good choice - believe me... And combined with a vest you can not only look stylish but also camouflage your - ahem - pondus...

For those who are unfamiliar with the bodega-muscle or pub-muscle: http://multimedia.pol.dk/archive/001..._m_170132a.jpg

Can someone remind me what is that red collared suit is called, and Charles is just wearing black tie?
Edit - got it Windsor Coat or Uniform.

I think it's just the shadows. He could have grown one from when he left the RAF but didn't. Maybe Kate didn't like his Navy beard.

Harry seems to love suede shoes. I did think the blue oxfords a great, step up fashion choice!

Great to see something on Harry's feet besides his beloved brown loafers. Now, if he could just attend to the rest of his attire, (and throw his blue suit out of the window at Nott Cott,) we might see a fashion revolution! I doubt it somehow, though!

That jacket he's wearing does not go with the trousers and is not one of the ubiquitous "Blue Suits" as it has a double pocket on the right. That is way too outre for one of the 'Blue Suits' and looks to be a more modern style. His trousers are also casual given the visible brass buckle on his belt.

Perhaps Harry just likes blue and decided to give us a buffet blue with his jacket, trousers and shoes all in different materials in differing shades of blue.

Now, that's more like it!
William and Harry: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/...3418935087.jpg

Nevertheless their grandfather managed to out-dress them

The royal ladies were reduced to props on this occasion.

William looks great in this outfit - black really suits him and brings out some depth in his eyes. The crisp white shirt and sharp black jacket are cool and I think he needs to wear this style more often.

Harry's blue shoes are so trendy and add just enough interest to make the whole look far from conservative.

He's not Royal, but he is family. And he's gotten in really great shape, which is noticeable in photos from the golf today. Mike Tindall was a bulkier-fit when he played professionally. And it has taken a couple of years, but the new bod looks good. The parts are wonderful. And slimming.
