    Prince of Whales is a popular city gent/preppie crossover look, where you wear a glen plaid suit overprinted with tiny marine critters...

    The Whale that wanders round the Pole
    Is not a table fish.
    You cannot bake or boil him whole
    Nor serve him in a dish;

    But you may cut his blubber up
    And melt it down for oil.
    And so replace the colza bean
    (A product of the soil).

    These facts should all be noted down
    And ruminated on,
    By every boy in Oxford town
    Who wants to be a Don.

    I love the sound of the word, whale.

    It has a certain absurdity to it.

    This whale doesn't look too happy to be spouting water on a belt.

    No, no, no Nick... you have your entitlements all wrong. The silver age Aquaman you posted in your picture eventually became King, but he was not born of nobility. He gained his title through marriage to Mera. The NEW aquaman was a prince, but for the most part I hate "new origins" crap and ignore it. You want a Prince of whales (and the rest of the undersea realm)? I'll give you a Prince. [​IMG] Namor was a badass.

    Could you wear such a jacket with wide whale cords? Or thin whales?
