Royals are used to being the talk of the town on social media, and this year it was King Felipe’s turn thanks to his sartorial work.
Usually it’s the Princess of Wales with Wimbledon fashion trends. But when King Felipe attended the men’s singles final and watched Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz defeat Novak Djokovic to win the title, he sparked the latest viral trend, but it was all about him. It was because of his suit.
User X with username @dieworkwear shared his thoughts: “It’s very rare to see this level of tailoring today, even in the wealthy. So let’s talk about some of the reasons why it’s great.”
Derek Guy then started a serious thread about how King Felipe is perfectly tailored. For example, “The collar always wraps around your neck.” and “Things are clearly hanging down.” lose to “The lapel ends about half way from the collar to the shoulder bone (good proportions).”
In one message he wrote: “His coat here ends about half way from the collar to the floor, again a very classic and flattering proportion. His sleeves hang very nicely. His pants fall against the coat. It’s well balanced.”
There are also points in the collar of the king’s shirt, the line of his shoulders, his pants, and the type of knot in his tie (four-in-hand, or four-in-hand). “Feeling safe.”)
Contrasting this with a photo of a celebrity, Guy wrote: “This is in contrast to many stars these days who wear short, tight coats. The sleeves grab the arms, so they don’t hang down nicely. When the sleeves grab the arms like this, they tend to ride up. I tend to put it away.”
Almost 160,000 people stamped a giant heart next to the first message.and the user has the first “It’s very rare to see this level of tailoring today, even in the wealthy. So let’s talk about some of the reasons why it’s great.” Created a line and applied it to everyone from Aragorn Lord of the Ring To Babar the elephant, to everyday people in decidedly oversized suits.
In a year marked by royal fashion, the King of Spain reigns as the ultimate style icon. It’s hard to see…
