Fashion or Flop? Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk

Here, the Duke of Norfolk sports a dark velvet cloak, graciously trimmed in ermine, over a silken burnt orange tunic. He proudly wears his chain of estate, and tops off his look with a simple velvet hat. What think ye? Fashion or Flop?

  1. I'm sure this look was very fashionable in his time!! LOL Burnt orange wouldn't be my first choice and a bit of decoration on the hat (a feather or some fancy embroidering) would have topped off the look quite elegantly. All this being said, he does look quite regal.
