STYLE ICON: PRINCE MICHAEL OF KENT



GQ is not a publication you would describe as being on the pulse (yes, Dylan, I’m looking for a humidor for my cigar collection and like to see the 10 best on the market). It doesn’t bring up anything new, but occasionally you are reminded of something old and brilliant. In this month’s Best Dress List, it was the sartorial splendour of Prince Michael of Kent (this year he made 34). The Queen’s first cousin, a decendent of and dead ringer for the last Tsar of Russia, Prince Michael has been doning the same splendid double breasted suits in shades and blue and grey since time began. He has a style entirely icon style, and we applaud.
