Fashion or Flop? - Philip II of Spain


Philip of Spain, husband of Mary I, sports a breast plate of black and gold armor over an expertly woven chain mail shirt. His pants are true Tudor breeches with gold embroidery (not too great for the battle field I would imagine) as well as thigh high boots (Scandalous, Philip. Scandalous).

What think you? Fashion or flop on the Spaniard's part?

  1. He has the cat-walk scowl - already studied to perfection.

  5. Flop. His legs look too skinny and womanly I think. The top is too fussy for my taste too. Sorry Phillip!

  6. Me thinks he might've liked fashion a little more than women. : )
