A number of items from the wardrobe of the late Duke of Windsor will be auctioned this coming December 8 at Kerry Taylor Auctions in London.
Lots 120-123 include shirts, ties, shoes, a cream silk dinner jacket by Metzel and a cream linen suit by H. Harris. Everything on offer was apparently in the original 1997 Sotheby's sale of the late Duke's effects.
Special buttons graced much of the Duke's wardrobe, and the buttons on the linen suit are no exception with the Royal Yacht Squadron emblem etched in gold.
The sale is an opportunity to own a bit of clothing history for what is expected to be about the cost of comparable bespoke items today. There is no need to attend in person as bids may be arranged in advance.
