A few nights back everyone’s favorite royal couple attended the War Horse premiere in London. Sadly, I was not invited… Luckily, a few good pictures surfaced of the event. It goes without saying, but Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) looked rather stunning, as per usual. But this is not to slight the well dressed Prince William (Duke of Cambridge). So, in case you were ever wondering how a prince does black tie here you are.
This Prince dons a double breasted dinner jacket with some well polished black oxfords. Of concern is that he is showing no shirt cuff, and one should always be showing 1/4-1/2 inch of their cuff. One should note that his tie looks like it could only be self tied and it is paired with a turn down collar, just like the Duke of Windsor (who I believe would be his great uncle) helped popularize decades ago. Additionally, the shirt does not have pleats or studs, which gives a crisp and understated look. Oh, and don’t forget the well placed white handkerchief. An elegantly dressed couple.
