These are obviously well done bespoke suits. They express the bodies and lives of the wearers.
The above comment about fit I disagree with. Much of the Attolini, Borrelli etc that is so beloved here does not actually fit the wearer, rather it covers him and expresses the personality of the clothing rather than the personality of the wearer. Such a fit is fashion rather than elegance. Certainly both approaches are valid and have their place in the sartorial world.
As far as judging the nature of the fit is concerned, I’d love to know under what standard we’re operating?
Before GQ and every other menswear rag started dumbing down the rules to one word “slim” (apparently men are too stupid to juggle other vital nuances of fit), there was a thing known as “tailoring” – that being said, considering the fact that both of these gentlemen are wearing bespoke, and the suits could be anywhere from 15months – 15 yrs old, I would say, the fit is nothing short of where it should be.
The best things about Prince Michael of Kent are his allegiance to the full beard (a Naval tradition not kept up by recent generations of Royals) and the fact that his shirt collars are tailored to his exact specifications (higher than the average). I think that, amongst a pretty unspectacular looking family, he stands out.

You clearly haven’t seen his son is person. Freddie Windsor is extremely handsome, has the most amazing grey eyes ever & his sister Gabriella is extremely pretty also. You really perhaps need to hit a few London clubs & see for yourself …
It is Prince Michael of Kent. And the comment about a pretty unspectacular family I disagree with. Charles always looks spectacular. And a word on fit. Most of the posters on this site do seem to have a love affair with ill fitting clothes. Jackets too tight, pants too short, it’s odd. Clothes have to be worn which means they need to be comfortable. The best looking looks are always those that look comfortable and people feel good about themselves in. Just surf the pics, casual or tailored as in this case, good fit is essential.
