  1. George, Duke of Kent sporting his double breasted outerwear. On the first picture a double breasted coat with astrakhan collar, also worn by his brother David and a troublemaker by the name of Winston Churchill. Coats with astrakhan collars were not always respectable outerwear, in the early twenties and before that the coat was mainly worn by ‘louche’ characters such as theater impressario’s and other East End oppurtunists.

  5. Prince George, Duke of Kent (1902-1942), that wonderful bisexual, adulterous, substance dependendent bon-vivant. We owe the ‘Kent style’ double breasted to this man, the four button double breasted suit, of which you only do up the last button. I for one think he was much more stylish than his overhyped brother David, better known as the Duke of Windsor. George’s style was as subdued and understated as his  exploits in the bedroom were on the edge. Click to enlarge, look ‘n’ learn.
