Tatler examines the King’s discerningly stylish clothing in honour of his birthday.
Following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, on September 8, this year, King Charles III took the throne. Since then, we have seen the ascension of our new King to the throne.
Charles consistently gave us typical English brilliance in dress during his reign as Prince of Wales. His commitment to the fine art of British craftsmanship is precisely what establishes him as a stalwart of sartorial elegance. He wears exquisitely tailored suits from Anderson & Sheppard, stylish shirts from Turnbull & Asser, traditional kilts in Balmoral tartan, and the ideal rural-chic outerwear from Barbour.
The King has frequently struggled for the future of fashion, despite the fact that these traditional shapes have a timeless beauty. Charles was a fervent supporter and the creator of The Campaign For Wool. He worked nonstop to promote wool as a highly sustainable fibre in the fashion and home goods industries. King Charles has long worked toward a fashionable and sustainable Britain, whether through partnerships with storied brands like Johnston of Elgin, massive knitted art projects at Dumfries House, or by offering training to young craftsmen hoping to break into the fabric industry.
As he turns 74, Tatler looks back at King Charles III’s most iconic looks, a trove of classy and refined costumes.
