Since getting engaged to Meghan Markle last November, it's been noted that Prince Harry's style has become noticeably more sophisticated and nuanced. Could it have something to do with Markle, who used to star on a television show called Suits?

Prince Harry's suits come from Gieves & Hawkes

It says so on the website of the venerable tailor at 1 Savile Row. Gieves & Hawkes has also dressed Prince Charles, the Queen's father and grandfather, George VI, and George V, and Prince William.

But unlike Prince William, Harry seems to prefer a lighter shade of blue than the traditional navy.

According to Esquire UK, it's the hippest, youngest choice he can make without calling too much attention to himself.

He's a traditionalist when it comes to a dinner jacket.


Prince Harry wore a traditional tuxedo with peak lapels to the European premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the Royal Albert Hall in London on December 12, 2017.

He's a fan of crewneck sweaters.


The prince wore an Everlane Cashmere Crew sweater during a visit to Cardiff Castle with Meghan Markle on January 18, 2018.

Harry has a clear fondness for jewelry. He sported a couple of bracelets at a rugby competition in Stockport, England, on June 21, 2016.

He even wears them for more formal occasions.


Like when he and Meghan Markle announced their engagement at Kensington Palace on November 27, 2017. Notice his hand positioning, which a body language expert says is "likely a habit" through which the prince "is subconsciously reassuring himself from perceived anxiety or stress."

He's actually toned down the bracelet thing in recent years.


He used to wear even more--here's a photo from January 7, 2005, where he seems be rocking as many as seven or eight.

It started early.

His bracelet fondness goes back to his 2003 days at Eton College.

He knows a man's best (style) friend is a great pair of sunglasses.


He paired the bracelets with a pair of Persols at the Invictus Games in Toronto on September 27, 2017.

Prince Harry knows his way around proper wedding attire.

Four years earlier, he wore a lighter-colored waistcoat to the wedding of James Meade and Lady Laura Marsham on September 14, 2013 in King's Lynn, England.

Like all the royals, Harry is outdoorsy—and knows how to dress the part.
