At the end of last year Prince Charles celebrated his 70thbirthday. Throughout his seventy years in the public eye, HRH Prince Charles has always demonstrated an impeccable eye for style. If you’re on the lookout for a beautifully classic style icon, you quite simply cannot go wrong with the Prince of Wales.
Of course, being a member of the royal family comes with a certain level of expectation and protocol. Though in the past HRH was a little more experimental with his look (don’t believe us? Take a look at this pink suit and white Stetson combo!), these days he’s always dressed perfectly correctly and as expected.
What we love about Prince Charles’ style is that it’s always impeccable and always right on the mark. Clear proof, if it were needed, that you can never go wrong with perfectly cut tailoring.
If you want to get the Prince of Wales’ look, we’ve collected some classic inspiration below.
Looking dapper in a pinstripe suit with his grandson Prince George. Note the contrasting patterns between his suit, his tie and his pocket square… and how it all still sits elegantly together.
Smiling in a classic brown overcoat. We particularly like the classic lapel points and double-breasted detail.
Dressed in formal wear fit for a future king at his wedding to the Duchess of Cornwall. We think this outfit is made special by the thoughtful details, particularly the piping on the jacket and the attractive cut of the waistcoat.
Classic in a beige summer suit. Have you noticed how his tie and pocket square are perfectly co-ordinated, but not an exact match?
