What caught my eye: I’m not saying it’s impossible, but a 21-year-old this dapper is something to celebrate. Charles is very bold wearing a red vest, his herringbone tweed coat is perfect for cold weather and cuffed slacks are also a great statement. I don’t usually like cuffed pants, but his aggressive, slimming taper and high break make a very traditional style of pants very modern and youthful. In my opinion, it’s the only way to wear cuffed pants and not look dated or like you just borrowed one of your dad’s old suits.
