Duke of Windsor Style

I had the great pleasure today to meet with a fellow and his lovely wife who are great fans of WIJW. Needless to say, I was deeply gratified to hear that we’ve provided some inspiration to our readership—a true delight! Perhaps not that surprisingly (if you can imagine running into me while I’m wearing one of the pictured outfits here!), these impromptu meetings often lead to a discussion of the Duke of Windsor and his sensational style. As you know, he’s one of my most favorite of style-icons.

Rather than sport a verbatim look as styled by Tom Ford (or any other designer for that matter), I prefer to look at pieces and reflect on how, say, the Duke might have possibly worn them, with his audacious mix of patterns and materials; I try to incorporate some of that same daring and personal flair in my own style, mixing and matching to create new and unusual looks.
