can you tell me who makes this suit cloth?

I await your groupthink criticisms with giddy anticipation:

It's fine. FooBot say too blue, but I don't mind. Manton say push down square, show less.

The Prince, to me, is always one of the best dressed people on the planet. I have nothing to criticize about that outfit (could do without the pocketsquare) but to me, its classic Prince Charles, very well dressed, clothes that fit very well and nothing so in your face as that you see the clothes rather then the man. Basically, the exact opposite of what is popular in men's clothing as per the blogosphere/magazines/forums etc.

Do you reckon HRH's shirt and tie could be thought of in terms of foo.gif's post on the Italian background -- the idea that the internet wants to simplify that down to two solids, but in practice it's more patterned? Or are the patterns here too strong for that?

 

Of course, there's probably no less Italian context in the world, but can it be thought of in an similar manner?

 

My guess of, course, is that this thread is pretty opposed to wearing only one color,* but I have to admit this is nice enough for it. I sort of feel like all the blue is better than 3/4s blue and then one unrelated thing, but I could certainly be convinced otherwise.
 

*Edit: shows what I know.

The fact I never noticed it is telling, but I like to know why certain things are done, so I'll just strike a conversation with my tailor. On a more substantive note, I had my subsequent coats lengthened a fraction, plus made with slightly wider lapels, however.

The latter point was difficult. The cutter seemed to think that wide lapels would swallow my frame up, and he preferred more balance.

Good comparison of Foo's Neapolitan tailoring vs English tailoring below (I never specified anything on my blazer except to insist for a shorter length, swappable buttons, and smth professional). In retrospect, I think I cld have gone a little longer.

What I meant was; ignorance is bliss. You over thought it. As you were.

Dumbo has the charisma of a box of lasagna and he's wearing a small collar shirt with a big DB, I like the square+suit though.

I know that in France you need to be nauseously unctuous, sleazy, and a sex pest to be pass as "charismatic", so I'll put your words down to cultural relativism.

I love how Prince Charles creases his sleeves. That's the old man swag. Always crispy. See above and...

I hate the creased sleeves and I can't stand the way he buttons both buttons on his coat. Other than that, i agree with ed, he almost always looks good.

I love the slightly stretched out hip pockets from stuffing his hands in them all the time. Like a boss.

First one is really good and I like the signs of wear.

I like all the buttons being done on his coat (not that I would do it),in some ways to me its the ultimate symbol of his comfort in the suit. He buttons the thing up, goes about his life doing everything without ever unbuttoning/rebuttoning the jacket. The jacket has to be cut to allow for that type of mobility I would think.
