Take A Look - Duke Of Windsor

Part 2 of the edition of Take A Look features suits and tuxedos and a man who wore them wonderfully well - The Duke Of Winsor.
Look 1. Perfect tailoring - look at his shirt cuffs. I also love the pocket square fold.
Look 2. Is this not how we all want to look when wearing a tuxedo? Also he makes the button hole (boutonnière) and pocket square work together.
Look 3. Tailoring again and another double breasted suit but what caught my eyes were the socks, beautiful.
Look 4. The most casual picture I could find of The Duke of Windsor. The shirt collar looks fantastic and the sweater fits him perfectly (again look at his shirt cuffs). 

There is one look I wanted to see the duke execute but I could not find it - The Duke of Windsor in a casual double-breasted sports coat. If anyone has any other pictures of the Duke Of Windsor please do let me know.

Somewhere I have a dozen or so photos of the Duke's suits from an auction several years ago. I'll see if I can't find them again and post them on my site.

Will - That would be great. I would love to see the details in the clothes he wore.
