Sorry if this sounds like I'm turning into Emily Post, but I wish the media would stop illustrating the story about David Cameron and his apparent vacillations over what to wear to the Royal Wedding with the wrong images.
The debate is whether the Prime minister should wear a lounge suit (a business suit in modern parlance) or morning dress. The trouble is that media outlets such as the BBC and Conservative Home as well as others are insisting on using pictures of white tie and tails to illustrate the morning suit option.
At the top of this post is what morning dress actually looks like (as modeled by various royals).
Below are pictures used by the BBC and by Conservative Home:
To my mind, white tie and tails looks a lot more 'posh than standard morning dress. Cameron has the option of dressing down slightly by wearing a morning suit - the same style of tail coat, but with the coat, waistcoat and trousers all in the same colour, usually grey. Of course, if he went the whole hog and turned up with Ascot Cravat, kid gloves, spats and cane then the photographers might have a field day.
