I'm very pleased to see recent examples of Prince Charles's 'ratting wardrobe'; a man after my own heart.
I've never been one to throw away clothes simply because of holes or shabbiness. My 1970-ish Barbour is certainly showing signs of wear and tear, but as such coats don't come cheap, I shall be hanging onto it.
It looks as if Charles thinks similarly about this rather odd looking coat of his (below).
I have noticed over the years that he often wears a well-worn, slightly 'Orangey' looking overcoat when on official visits. It still looks OK, but he must have owned it since the 60's.
Well done Charlie, a man who believes in sustainability, and hates waste; an example to us all.
