Fashion or Flop? Lord Burghley

Lord Burghley, perhaps Elizabeth I's most influential adviser, sports a red velvet ensemble, complete with a darker velvet cloak, large chain of estate, and even larger sash. It is topped with a large lace ruffle, all the rage in Elizabethan England.

Lord Burghley may have had his wits about him when it came to politics, but what about fashion? Is it a yay or a nay?
