The Unkempt Prince

We’ve said it once, we’ve said it in a slightly less dickish way once, and we’ll say pretty much the same thing once again: Prince William looks like an associate at a top private equity firm.

The only difference is that associates at top private equity firms know that male pattern baldness, when on display, must be taken high and tight. And they know that this is not up for debate.

Now we will bow to you and be on our way.

Kempt Man of the Hour: Prince William

Prince William’s tour of the colonies has had its sartorial ups and downs. There was the Tom Ford-esque double-breasted tuxedo, balanced out by the sinking realization that yes, he really was planning on wearing the same blue-gray suit through the entire trip.

But our highlight by far was this snap of his future Highness at a Santa Barbara polo club. Here, he actually looks buttoned-down—thanks to his tropical whites and a few loose buttons. Granted, we would have preferred a little less billowing in the pants (or even, gasp, white denim), but this is about as sharp as royalty’s allowed to get. Any slicker and he’d be one of the common people
