Is this evil?

Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece in a satin notch-lapel dinner jacket and a grosgrain bow-tie. I believe Prince Pavlos uses Giovanni Gagliano as tailors.

I suppose the wristwatch can be excused.

He is only Prince Pavlos of Greece outside of Greece. In reality, he is pretty much as much Greek royalty as Prince Otto of Bavaria...

The abolition of the monarchy in 1974, I believe. The Wittelsbach Otto was also King of Greece.

Yes, that is the Otto I mentioned. He was a foreigner imposed by the Big Three - France, Britain and Russia - as the king of the Hellenes during the first years of the new republic - Kapodistrias never managed to make Greece a democracy. What better way to make sure a new nation would be your ally and will work to your advantage ? Most of the "royal family" are at the very least controversial figures in the Greek world and quite often personnae non grata.

It was the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksberg, which was really German. I think the various Scandinavian kingdoms are still under that lineage.

The gentleman looks fine to me. But then, notched lapels don't freak me out as they do some, although poorly chosen shirts, ties and shoes do cause me to wince.

I don't attend enough formal affairs to critique his clothes, but is that some sort of Jean Micheal Basquiat painting behind him?

At what point does one just accept that notched lapels on dinner jackets are now accepted? I don't care for them myself, but given their ubiquity, is this not a battle that has been fought and lost?

But the material differences should be compensated as in the satin and grosgrain.

I don't necessarily agree.

I have a severe distaste for monarchies of all kind.
