LadyFinn. (Quote) Daniel's cufflinks on last Wednesday are from the official Wedding Serie Skultuna created to the wedding of Victoria and Daniel:
Prins Daniels knappar _ Kungliga modebloggen

The motive is The Polar star, an ancient symbol of the northerly Kingdom of Sweden. Part of the revenue is donated to the Crown Princess Couple’s Foundation.

Nice.

It's in the details.

Did Kate finally shred the blue ones?
Poor guy, he must feel so uncomfortable.

But it'll pass. A few years with these and he'll be fine again.

Well Muhler he did have the chance to "stretch" them out while flying to the park today. Thank goodness he's branched out into a new pair.

but as we have seen many times on this tour, the blue suit lives on (if a bit tighter than usual )
but happy to report that he has bought a new blue shirt as well

I like the more casual clothes William wears on tours - they're a little safe in terms of colour but nice all the same.

I particularly like the grey trousers and think William would look great if he got a whole suit in that colour and material. The blue shirt is a nice classic and looks like a comfy, more open-weave material. I'd really love to see him in a nice pair of linens with a white linen shirt!

Mark my words, one of these days he'll give in to his inner hippie, strap a guitar on his back and head for San Fransisco. (We seriously need a hippie-smiley)
- Wearing a tie naturally...

Is that a leprauchan?

Joachim and his brother do branch into colour sometimes don't they, with their red pants for casual wear? So why not a nice pair of red shoes!

You know, I actually really like those shoes and Joachim has matched his tie in nicely.

I think the key to being a little avant-garde in one's colour choices is to keep it simple and not go over-board.....a whole suit in that colour with black shoes would have been way too much!

What William wore on tour: Did the Duke of Cambridge get his dress code right?

Nice comfy-looking polo.
Brown shoes gotta die. - Only retired hippies and state-school-teachers born prior to 1969 use them. That's basically the same thing, come to think of it.

Tight-fitting pants may look appropriate on a ballet dancer, but the rest of the male gender? Nah.

Shirt-sleeves should be seen when wearing a suit.
Nice watch though.

Fell asleep while looking at the ties in the gallery.

Here is a man in serious need of a scarlet velvet jacket.
And a panama-hat...

Muhler you are right on.
William might need to buy bigger pants. these are getting too tight.
For this trip I give him a solid C+ (the greyish pants he wore was a step in the right direction)
shame he did not venture more from his blue suit
Something as simple as trying a grey suit would have looked nice.

speaking of grey, Frederik in a nice suit during the Mexican state visit

looking fantastic, stylish yet formal for the events
and of course with his million-dollar smile

I think Harry has a pair of those same brown shoes.

William always rolls up his sleeves up instead of wearing short sleeve shirts. I think it's a British army thing.

An intersting article - it's nice to see something substantial about a royal man's fashion.

It says that William gets his suits etc from Savile Row (places like Gieves & Hawkes etc) and I am convinced that if you go into any of these places they will be able to advise you on what sort of suit and clothing would be ideal for a trip to places like India and Bhutan....and supply you with everything you might need.

Maybe William's standard suit, shirt and tie set he wears back in the UK was re-created in lighter materials, but somehow I'm not sure that's what he did.

My favourite outfit on this tour was today's tracking outfit, well the shirt anyway.
