You know, it's with some hesitation I click on your links, Mademoiselle Lilo.

But this time the shock wasn't as big. I'm merely puzzled: Is the early 70's back in fashion? - If so I'd like to sign up for five years of hibernation.

Who is the guy who is trying to look cool next to the King?
That's a fail, the King on the other hand is the real thing.

Surely you have, if not a kaftan, a pair of flared trousers and a psychedelic tie tucked away somewhere, Muhler? You will fit right in.

I think it's time for some Baileys Irish Cream! Pass the ice, please.
It's actually a cute photo.

I had to check if it had been photoshopped. It isn't.
So the conclusion is that V&D went to the concert in either Copenhagen or Finland, simply in order to blend in with the natives. A Swede, dressed as a Swede would normally do, would simply stand out like a lighthouse! So upon leaving Swedish territory, V&D changed to local attire.
Daniel, like most Swedish men in that situation, had to steady his nerves with several sniffs of "snus" (a peculiarity Swedes do when they party hard! It's a long story for another time) Yet had it not been for the encouragement of his beloved daughter he still wouldn't have been able to put on those jeans. They go against his very nature.

It's true. they called from Daily Mail and told me.

For those who are unfamiliar with "snus": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snus

Well, I must admit to own a polo-shirt in vivid colors. - Two actually. - Okay, several to be honest. - Well, Most.

Certainly that is a shirt few men would dare wear outside
goes well with the suit

It is actually.

A very nice formal-informal attire. A bit retro with the slip-over and a bit boarding school with that tie. Nice!

Ah, that was the word I was looking for . . . boarding school! And yes it does and it also clashes with the slip-over or vest which clashes with . . . well . . . everything. However, "everything" else is pretty darned nifty!

I mean the matching cap this year, perfect

Others have more classic, "quieter" styles while golfing. Rocking the Danish red of course.

Others go very old-school. Of course Daniel would wear a tie while golfing

I believe he has been denied entry into Ireland for wearing such pants. Lest he spooks the leprechauns.
They tend to take golf very seriously in Ireland, you know!
I've even heard not being passionate about golf is reason enough for an immediate and unconditional divorce there.

Not to mention Canada. The otherwise very polite Canadians would almost consider uttering rude words if he played in Canada dressed like that.

It's true, our mailman who knows everything told me.

I think men look dapper in suits and I have to say I am fan of Edward's suit in this photo from an engagement last week:

Edward

It's a change to the normal black and navy suits.

Today, we had the pleasure of seeing William and Harry dressed up side by side: https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...n-marriage.jpg

And they are almost there, but only almost.
Harry: Striped pants. - Yes!
A well-fitted outfit, with the correct length of the coat tail. - Yes!
Nice vest. - OK.
Nothing on the lapel.
No handkerchief in the pocket.
Safe but pretty boring tie. - OK.

William:
A well-fitted suit, but his watch is showing. (I'll get back to that)
A daring tie. - OK.
A pin in the tie, all gentlemen wear a tie-pin. - Yes!
Handkerchief. - Yes!
But where is the thingy on the lapel?
Where are the striped pants?

Both of them will get from me.
But the last is missing.
Where is the PANG? - Colored and patterned vests would give us a real PANG-effect! Or at least some vivid ties. This is a party, so let's rock!
And the final touch is missing: Gentlemen wear a watch on a chain when wearing a vest. Or at least the chain...
Prince Charles would have blown them out of the water.

But I would very much like to see Edward go Mohammed, just once.

Muhler - commentary exceeding all hopes, as usual. Is there a name for that blousing out of the tie above the pin? If not, there should be.

And now, Harry and Wills know what to get one another for Christmas! Watches. And Kate can get them the chains.

I'm just happy Harry's well worn friendship bracelets are not sticking out from his cuffs.

British male suits are always the best. Well-dressed. A classic wedding style. I think if Harry weds, he's more likely to wear British military wear than traditional British male wedding attire.

Oh dear, oh dear. This is a typical example of why well-rounded gentlemen should always wear braces. Otherwise the belt tends to end up pretty far down the hips... Under the belly!
And when bowing such gentlemen tend to cause irreparably psychological damage to innocent bystanders standing behind them...

I assume the majority of ladies here on TRF are not acquainted with gentlemen's privies?
Imagine up to several such well-rounded gentlemen standing around, some trying to locate the belt-buckle somewhere under their bellies.
While others, who have managed to find both ends of their belts are in the process of going through hip-movements, that would be the envy of even the most experienced belly-dancer, in order to find the right under-belly-spot, around which they can tighten their belts. - All that without actually being able to see the belt-buckle mind you!

Yes, it's called: "We are British". It's actually supposed to be that way. It's a compensation for the stiff upper lip beforehand. When correctly attired British gentlemen beforehand wanted to show that they were really in party-mood, they tucked their ties up a bit.
The sale of smelling-salt went up by 1400% back in 1903, when that fashion was introduced in British society.

Perhaps William and Harry should have worn tartan trousers as a couple of the other guests did with their morning suit jackets and ties etc. That would have zinged things up a bit.

Oh dear! Check out the socks!

Hmm, what is missing with Harry, apart from a smile is some pizzaz and a boutonnière.

Good gracious those pants were ugly! I think Uncle Gary and Spencer Matthews looked the best at the wedding. All the other guys were boring or looked ridiculous.
