Not too much rejoicing, though, as we have yet to see the shoes... and it's the same blue suit he's been wearing since 2010. Small steps though.
Sadly, his horrible brown shoes have survived into 2019

OH COME ON. ARGH.

I give up. He's hopeless. 100% hopeless. Gross shoes. Too tight suit that he wears everywhere. "New" tie that he'll now wear every single engagement this month.

He should just cut his beard off so that I can be completely over him :cries in Haakon's refusal to be well-dressed: 😭

Oh dear, that is one very odd ensemble our Fred is wearing. The jacket seems a little small, the trousers a little large. And let's not forget the scrawny tie that just looks wrong.

The boots, however, are really nice . . . even if they are suede.

I do so miss his beard because he looks so chubby-cheeked and baby faced.

stylish tie

thankfully his choice of velvet is stylish and not an outrageous color like his brother's choices

Joachim ---- That jacket is soooo RED!!!! Gosh I nearly had to reach for my sunglasses!
Is Fred wearing a blue velvet jacket???
I know whats going on. The Scandinavian Princes are trying to start a new trend in velvet.
Yikes!!!
As for Haakon, I am at a loss for words.

My dear Polyesco.
As you know Joachim is a perfect gentleman, and all gentlemen know that if you wear velvet, you go all out.
Then compare Joachim to his brother. I ask then, who has gone all out and who is bland? Joachim delivers again.

As for Haakon's shoes. I notice the court has deliberately tried to crop the released photos, so as to leave out his footwear. An act of desperation I imagine from the court.

Love your analogy on Haakons cropped shoes! Laughed out loud then choked on my ice cream.

^^^^^ With me it is tea! But Muhler you have to admit that Fred's blue velvet black tie jacket is just as stunning as Joachim's red one.

My dear Biri, what have you done to me?!?
My eyes still hurt!

Is that a line up at the local precinct of the Fashion Police of Luxembourg?

To the left we start out with, what can only be a hillbilly, no doubt with cannibalistic tendencies judging from the expression in his eyes!
Who on earth let him out in public?
He has thrown an ill-fitting blazer over his under-shirt and completed it all with high-school-teacher pants. (If we had a suicidal smiley, I would use it now!)

Then we have a person who is obviously a fashion-serial-killer. He must extinguished the light in many a fashion designers eyes!
A way too big blazer and a pair of pants that has been left in the washing machine for a couple of years before he put them on.
Put at least he is wearing a lapel pin and his tie is tied with the best knot.

Then we have Prince Louis.
He is wearing lapels wide enough to be the envy of even the most eccentrically dressed man from the 70s.
Nice, festive tie though. But here is where disaster strikes. Look at the knot. Had he used a knot like the one used by the personage to his right, it would look askew.
You know I have a thing for double-breasted suits, right? This illustrates why. Louis' shirt is visible under the button.
At least he is wearing and handkerchief.
He gets from me.

Finally we have the man on the right.
Acceptable tie, but the knot... And the tie is dripping under the button. Double-breasted I say! Wear double-breasted.
His shirtsleeves are too short, they should be showing under his cuffs.
He has no reason at all for looking so smug.
He gets from me.

I'm thankful we don't see their shoes!

Marg, dear Marg, oh dear...
If you wear a velvet jacket you go all out or you flop.
Joachim is wearing a velvet jacket with pang, with nerve, with oomph.
Frederik is looking like a school teacher who has invited his wife on a date to the nearest hotdog stand.
No home run there that night, if you as a man dress like that, that I can safely tell you.

I'm fine. Really. The eye twitch will go away eventually.

It's really no fun anymore!

It's one thing to wear well-worn shoes. But these are worn-out - long ago!

It's almost demonstrative now.
