Oh dear, oh dear.

The tie knot is the simplest possible, come on. Surely he could make an effort on this day?
When you haven't got shoulders you camouflage it with and handkerchief and a vest.
Jacket is fine as such. Not particularly interesting but it fits.
The pants however are too long. He's almost standing on the surplus layers of fabric.
And then we have the shoes. Haakon-shoes mark 8.

Alas, he is representative for most modern men. Clothes is something you wear for warmth or decency - so logic dictates that the same thing must apply to suits.
How about his wife? Is there any hope he'll improve once she gets her hand on his wardrobe? - If not he will eventually join Haakon.

What has happened to King Mohammed? Surely he hasn't gone normal?

No, even the jacket doesn't get a pass. It is too big around the chest and waist. Add that to the shoes and you get the idea he borrowed the suit. Hope he borrowed the shoes too.

The only positive thing I can say about this is; It would no doubt be worse if he wore a kilt!

He gets from me.

YIKES! And Sophie actually let him go out like that. I have pajamas very similar. I even zoomed in to his feet which I regret.

The dinner was at their house, so he didn’t need to go anywhere, but still.

IMO the monogrammed slippers give this outfit the final touch! As for the trews design, I think theyre in some sort of Stewart tartan. Perhaps Edward is very proud of his Scottish heritage!

There is a bright spot about Prince Edward's clothes. His bowtie and jacket are the same exact color. A perfect match!

That ensemble is .. endearing. I wonder if he bought that jacket, or inherited it?

Joachim gave it to him.
Wasn't flashy enough for his taste.

Hmm, good call. But wow, just wow . . . I would never have guessed Edward had it in him! Oh dear, I am suffering from serious sensory overload.

However, where did he even get the idea for those trousers let alone purchase them . . . oh and those slippers I bet he never let Joachim see the pants or slippers or we'd have seen him wearing something just like them.

It's evening slippers, also known as the Prince Albert slippers. It's very proper footwear for black-tie event.

I had a birdie whisper in my ear that Prince Edward is taking lessons on how to dress for dinner from Prince Henrik and the slippers are a gift from him. See Prince Edward has admired those red pants of Prince Henrik's and wanted a pair, so the slippers are a gift to go with the new pants that PH suggested he wear to dinner. Haven't we all seen Prince Pavlov wearing velvet slippers with his monogram on them, so maybe he started that trend of men in velvet slippers. And didn't Prince William once wear velvet slippers with a tux back a few years ago.... I think Prince Charles needs to keep an eye out on these young men for he is not on trend right now................

This trend was started by prince Albert in 19th century.

Guess times haven't changed that much after all with these royal men and their love of fancy pants and velvet slippers....... now all we ladies have to do is wait for the ribbons on the knee pants and white stockings with ruffles and they will really be stepping in style....
