Though he does not consider himself to be an icon of stye, he "is" very much an icon. The Prince of Wales, heir to the British throne, who so eloquently discussed his suffering from a fashion condition called the "stopped clock" syndrome, only getting his fashions right every 25 years, may have this in common with you too. Are you a man who doesn't identify with what's in style, have no clue as to the difference between a mock neck and a crew neck shirt, or you don't run out and purchase items because they're in fashion? Welcome to the world of the Prince! How often do you get stuck in a fashion time capsule, still wearing trends seen around town years ago? Or maybe you refuse to subject yourself to the status quo and dare to do your own thing. The prince himself has said that he is "a classic and timeless man" when it comes to his choice in clothing, selecting many of his suits from London's popular Savile Row. Does this sound like you? Well maybe at least the classic part? Whatever your style and taste may be, it makes you who you are and allows the world to see you as a unique arbiter of style whether you claim it not. Embrace your stopped clock syndrome because at least at some point during the day, even a stopped clock is right!
