Duke’s abdication in 1936 was due to his proposal to marry twice divorced Wallis Simpson, an American socialite at the time. Such a marriage would have conflicted with the Monarch’s role as head of the Church of England, not to mention the staunch opposition from the government of the day, lead by Stanley Baldwin. For the time, he was extremely modern in his approach to clothes, having them made for comfort, which he described as “dress soft”. One element of fashion that he was particularly keen on was pattern and this is evident in a large amount of his outfits. His passion for pattern was particularly interesting due to his height of just 5’5”, however he was clever in his cuts and his jacket waists were abnormally high to elongate his legs, which in turn meant he could carry off bold prints. His fashion was remarkably similar to his life and just in the way he showed disregard for the establishment, he also showed disregard for the fashion rules of the day. One such example is that he insisted on having cuffs on his trousers, which apparently enraged his father, George V.
