When Karl saw the news article about this, his response was "really?" "No way!"
I think he dresses well but I wouldn't say he's the best dressed. I think that when someone is well dressed it's not just a matter of the suits that they wear but how they wear them. It's about charisma. I don't think I've ever seen him go out on a limb with his suit choices, or show any particular flare. The closest I've ever seen him make a unique choice is on the day of Diana's funeral and he wore a blue suit instead of black. From what I've read, he did this as a tribute to her - she liked seeing him in blue suits.
Sometimes I feel sorry for men - they have such limited formal fashion choices.
Charles is a shabby copy of his Great Uncle David, the Duke of Windsor. The Duke was a trend setter while Chales seems like a rather shabby and rumpled version. Check out that beigy-brown old overcoat and his insistence on wearing a grey, rather than black, morning coat. ... With his fingers perpetually in the vest's front pockets. He does look good in evening wear but should stick to single breasted tuxes as he mis-buttons the double breasted ones and looks like an old Peter Sellars role in "I'm All Right Jack" as the shop steward.
