They are a pair of ignorant, humourless goons and it does not take a particularly high IQ to get the gong on properly but he cannot quite get there.

A lip-reader friend of mine caught him quoting Catullus to his chum; the particular excerpt rhymes with 'chum' too.

Another image of Prince Albert of Monaco. He seems to like that style.

The King of Tonga looks very well, but he is in fact wearing a frock coat rather than a morning coat - and very well too. The (male) Middletons haven't had much mention in this thread but both did very well, I thought, especially James with his nicely-proportioned stiff detachable collar. I didn't think that David Beckham quite carried off his wing collar (it could have done with being taller and stiffer) but the shot of him smiling above shows it off better that I have hitherto seen it. Of the other celebrity couple, I thought Sir Elton John looked rather fussy (I think his waistcoat was yellow embroidered rather than buff, as some others have had it) whereas David Furnish looked very well put together. Pleasing to see some buff waistcoats and a blue amongst the grey. Cameron's wasn't a favourite of mine, but kudos to him for getting the morning dress out.

In the father and son photo with their DB tuxedos, it appears both of them have all buttons fastened. After checking the Double Breasted Style post pictures, most of them have the bottom right button (from the wearer's perspective) not fastened. What is the rule for this?

There is no rule some DB coats look best with the button undone and some with it done up, neither is correct

Brilliant. Just brilliant.


Isn't that a frock coat? I always thought that a morning coat cuts away and has tails.

Yes, it is a frock coat.

No more so than we over here laugh at folk in the States wearing EVENING dress (tuxedos) to daytime weddings.
