I'm surprised no one started a thread on this already, but the clothes in Netflix's series "The Crown" are quite nice. It can run slow at times (somehow they were able to stretch an entire episode to cover smog) but overall it's a great show.

The designer estimates that 95% of the principal actors' 300+ costumes are tailor made (whatever that means) and whereas the women's costumes - particularly the Queen's, for obvious reasons - are given more screen time, the costumes for the men fit well and look great. I'm sure someone with a better eye and historical knowledge can add more commentary, but here's a few pics:

This Netflix show is a true treat for the sartorial eye. I would like to complement your excellent collection with the following pics.

I agree. My wife is making me binge watch it at the moment and while some of it does not ring true to me, I have been enjoying the clothes. Ben Miles' hacking jacket, spoilered above, especially caught my eye. Even though the episodes I've watched so far have all been set in the early 1950s, I think a great deal of what the male characters are wearing could be worn today without looking dated. The shirts, though, are very different. There are a lot of detached collars (and not just wing collars, either).

The clothes are great, someone must have made them, I'm surprised they aren't making more of a big deal about.

Again, I agree. It's a missed opportunity for someone or something. I've been especially intrigued by the tropical wear. Well, all of the clothes, really.

Charles is definitely dressed by the internet here.

I think the word masterclass has become my trigger word, along with the word louche.

Prince Charles, in self stripe? Highly doubtful.

In point of fact, the clothing and settings are the only things that persuaded me to sit through season 4...

Timothy Everest did most (if not all) of the suiting for the Crown. Tony Sylvester works for them and I’ve been meaning to ask him more about it...

Looks like something Invertere would have made.
