    Not exactly. The jacket collar stands away from the shirt collar. The shirt collar is too open above the tie knot. The tie knot is not pulled up into the collar. There is no dimple under the tie knot. The left shirt sleeve is not showing any cuff.

    Charles would never wear an American striped tie (stripes going from top right to left) but an English stripe (top left to right). And on Charles' blazer buttons he would sport his crest with ostrich plumes and Ich dien (I serve). Congratulations to your 1000th post.

    Plus your jacket is sans ticket pocket.

    And to add further insult, the lapel roll seems too sharp and there appears to be only one lapel buttonhole. Plus Charles' shirt collars are usually more dramatically cut away, and higher to conceal his long neck.

    Seriously, the jacket looks like it fits fairly well, if the sleeves were shortened. To really get to the Prince Charles level in front of an audience this demanding would require quite an outfit.

    I'm still gathering the courage to post pix of an outfit in front of this tough a crowd.

    Yeah, I noticed that too (It happens to me as well, thus I need to purchase thinner watches), but I decided that Ernest should defend himself. Jon.

    No pants, no shoes. Ernest is trying to cultivate his image as an eccentric. [​IMG]

    The Prince of Wales always wears a cutaway collar with ties. As has been said earlier, his ties are invariably striped the original British way, and are often the ties of regiments of which he is Colonel in Chief, or other service ties. It is, of course, seriously bad form for anyone who has not served to wear a regimental, corps or service tie to which they are not entitled, so we should not expect Ernest to pursue his quest to emulate the British too assiduosly.

    Yes, I have heard that the British are quite upset by the improper use of regimental / university neckties, thus I have avoided their patterns to avoid any problems. Luckily, there are hundreds, if not thousands of non-organizational ties out there that are perfectly suitable and whose patters are for the most part are indiscernible to the general population.

    hehe [​IMG]. Jon. (Well, at least you have to admit Ernest must be the best dressed out of all of his friends)
