    Prince Michael has never given a damn about what anyone thinks of anything he does. He is a very interesting man, and his wife, Princess Michael, has much the same attitude. I have had the pleasure to make their highness' acquaintance, and they are always amazingly gracious and he, in particular, quite funny.

    I have always wondered what kind of collar he dons to support those knots.

    I believe it's the other way round. Those knots could hold up a skyscraper.

    From Vox's Tumblr. Duke of Windsor. Definitely NFG, but correctly or incorrectly? And why?

    IMO correctly due to the other dude at the background also wearing robe/kimono type of dress, signifying its probably at a beach resort/occasion. But that pattern is 1000% loud as fuck.

    From the Celebrity DTO Challenge a couple of years back, the Dude has always been one of my style icons. IMO, he gives exactly the right amount of 'F's, one for him one for his wife and occasionally one for his social situation ( I suspect when you live off the Royal list, you don't want to piss off the Queen too much) -TTO

    Great photo - but you need more beard to take on the Prince!

    Also, I think that I read some years back that the Prince isn't on the royal list, so he doesn't receive an allowance from the public purse. He was, however, given a grace and favour apartment in one of the royal castles/palaces when he got married.

    It's interesting that al three of them wear hats, and two of them have beards. Wearing a hat and having a great beard makes it that much easier to pull off dressing extravagantly. Couldn't resist posting these pictures, that beard really is something special:

    Alright, given his pedigree, if there was a kindom of Doesn't Give A Fuck (and this is a successful kingdom, not the sovereign equivalent of Mark Zuckerberg's hoody), Prince Michael of Kent is king, right?

    For all that I can appreciate that he was technically skilled in combining patterns and had the budget, interest & patience to accumulate a large, well-fitting wardrobe, I tend to dislike a majority of the actual oufits I've seen, maybe 3 out of every 4. He generally looks like a clothes otaku and so is definitely not NFG because of that. I suppose my opinion is inevitably contaminated my disdain for his character.

    Having said all that, the kimono outfit's OK.

    TTO - i totally forgot about that, that was fantastic.

    that top hat is awesome, as is the RO on his wrist.

    Same jacket????
    The second one...I'd like to see more of the outfit. What pants is he wearing with that? The pattern matching seems very interesting. I rather like it. I think this is also a good example of how a particular person can rock one outfit with major style, yet put that thing on me and I'd like look a damn fool....

    I think he is a good dresser. Effective, not taking it too seriously, having a bit of fun. Of course the quality of his garments I think is integral to the look and its success as well. I have a picture of him in front of me at work (top left).
