Prince Harry Dips Out of Royal Life With a Subtle Sartorial Nod to Meghan Markle
In this wild and wacky era of maximalist menswear, it can sometimes be difficult (nay, damn near impossible!) figuring out what to wear. Us men see all the Harry Styles' of the world, in their glorious and unabashed embrace of all that this unusual golden age of menswear has to offer, and think to ourselves: Can I actually wear that? And, perhaps most important, do I want to? Well, for all you titans of slightly more conservative industries, or folks simply aspiring to dress like one, Prince Harry is out here modeling the perfect work fit. (FYI: Titans of Industry, this is a safe place. Welcome.)
On Monday, Harry and Meghan Markle hit a ceremony at Westminster Abbey honoring the British Commonwealth, the final official stop on what's been dubbed a Farewell Tour before their return to a decidedly non-royal life in Canada (a decision that sparked a media frenzy and a righteous royal furor when it was first announced, allegedly blindsiding Buckingham Palace). The gregarious ginger has always been the immediate Windsor family's resident style maverick (read: instead of wearing navy he sometimes opts for lighter shades of blue), but he knows that the best way to put together a presentable facade on the fly is simple: suit the fuck up. There's something about a suit that brings out the best in a man, making him stand a little straighter and hold his head a bit higher. (To wit: Although I didn't go full suit today, dear reader, your boy is, in fact, wearing a tie for the first time in months because fuck it).
But wait, there's more! Harry's crisp tailoring comes with a sweet tribute to his wife, in the form of a not-so-subtle green lining on the interior of his suit jacket (from master of British suiting Paul Smith), a coordinated nod to the green dress The Duchess wore.
Enjoy your final few days as a royal my sweet, sweet prince. You certainly look the part.
