The Prince of Wales has praised British tailoring and craft skills for their contribution to "the classic and timeless look of British style".
He told GQ magazine: "I have long been an admirer of British tailoring and the associated trades ... Given the demands of my life, it is a great help if a suit looks as good at the end of a day as it did at the start; and it also has to withstand the heavy battering it can sometimes receive.
"So the challenge to tailors, shirt and shoe-makers is a tough one. Clothes have to combine style with sustainability and I find British-made tailoring more than meets that challenge."
