I don't see morning dress there, but I do see an attempt at a stroller ensemble. Properly, his coat should have besom, not flapped, pockets, a peak lapel would be preferable, and his shoes look too casual. Still, a better effort than a lot of iGentry attempts.

Ah! I missed the jacket. I assumed it to be a morning suit by the jacket and pants coloring. I got a little to excited to see someone actually wearing it decently.

Those are some strange looking buttons on a couple of the King's recent efforts. I presume they are horn and have some kind of shank by which they are sewn to the fabric of the coat.

Spectator shoes with a DB navy suit doesn't seem right at all.
The suit looks lighter than true navy, and it has MOP buttons. These factors lower its formality appreciably. I think those spectators are quite compatible with it.

The dark suit and light two tone shoes still rings wrong to me. I'm also iffy on DB in warm weather.

I forget the DB designations, but the 2x2 is good. I'm not so sure about that 2x3 where the lapel runs to the bottom button.
