Prince Harry’s Blue Engagement Suit – The Look for Less

I’m not Royal Wedding crazy, but I am a bit of a admitted Anglophile. I’m a big fan of the things at which Brits are known to be great. Iconic television series, both comedic and dramatic, legendary English shoes, incredible grooming products, and a flawless sense of traditional tailoring. Prince Harry’s blue engagement suit Monday did more than enough to drive this final point home.

In fact, the wardrobes are so nice, the creators of the movie launched a clothing line at the same time using the actual clothes used in the film. The only trouble for me is that the clothes are a bit out of my price range. A Kingsman suit and a pair of brogues will set you back between $2,000 and $3,000!
