Not quite royalty, but a Sir, the aesthete, high art historian, museum director and landscape designer, Sir Roy Strong, aristo-casual in action:

This is more an example of English eccentricity.

I'm sure Strong was a client of Nutters in his youth.

He goes way back, photos of him in his early career, he's very much dressed as you would expect a middle class Brit in the late 50s and early 60s. No evidence of the flamboyant peacock that was to come.

Paul Keating, prime minister of Oz for a short time and politician in the 80's and early 90's. He was well known for his Zegna suits and sometimes for Gucci suits. Perhaps the best dressed of our politicians for a long long time.

Isn’t one of them shagging his Dad’s ex?
Keeping the aristocratic in-breeding theme going eh, although their grandad was a blue collar coal miner IIRC so I doubt he would approve of their toff lifestyle!

I didn't know that, makes a refreshing change from shagging your brother's missus. Ferry's last wife was a tidy piece, but she wanted kids and at his age, he called BS on that.
