He does get a lot of miles out of his clothes, however. Apparently, he has three valets-- at 8-hour shifts, that's literally 24/7 coverage for cleaning, pressing, repairing, etc.

Also, the McQueen thing needs some careful looking at. There is a decent risk that he spread the story himself.

He's has been back with Hitchcock for a long time - never heard why Plews should go to the Palace. Another Hitchcock goes occasionally.

Plews was at Welsh & Jefferies. When he got forced out, Charles's military business followed him over to Sackville St.

Charles got wow power on a couple of forums because some of those people bought from A&S, and, when do you see him in jeans and a T-shirt? It is a rare occasion to see him wearing something without tie, coat without lapels and without creased trousers. These two forums began because of coats with lapels and creased trousers and ties. The picture above shows an old coat that hangs from his shoulders rather drabbly.

He's quite a well-known figure outside the style world, which probably helps a lot. How many other males are recognizable to the average Joe and dress at his level and formality?

I think Charles is a fine enough dresser, I really do, but I don't think he's an amazing dresser as people seem to think he is these days.

If that was David Cameron wearing that same outfit would you still like it the same?

In your opinion who walks the line of being an amazing dresser?

"Kent" double breasted....and NO,NO,NO,is not a 80s thing.

I like the increased shirt/tie field, but the low button point scares me a little. Part of it is the unreasoned fear of gut-spillover, but there is the more practical consideration of sitting down without unbuttoning.

I think Prince Michael is a really good dresser, he has more style and dash about what he wears.

Yeah, but there's always that manatee he stuffs under the fungus. Unique for a good reason.

Well it's called "style" forum not "conformity" forum. Really you should broaden your horizons, maybe give sushi a try, I mean I know it's raw fish and not a happy meal but still.

Paris 1957.

To the left,the tailor (Italian born) Di Nota and the tailor Bardot.

Di Nota have a wonderful double breasted,in my opinion.

The DB of Bardot is a "Kent" model.
