Move over, Prince William and Prince Harry. Prince Charles is first in line for the throne, and can unofficially be crowned the "King of good tailoring."

The 64-year-old soon-to-be grandfather reigns at No. 8 on GQ 's annual best dressed list – well ahead of dashing William, who came in at 37.

Natalie Massenet of Net-a-Porter and head of the British Fashion Council calls Charles always "on trend." His method being simple: "This is a man who knows what he likes, knows how to wear it, and sticks with it whatever the prevailing fashions," she says in the February issue of the magazine out Thursday in the U.K. and next week in the U.S.





Since marrying Kate, 30-year-old William is noted to have improved sartorially, donning suits by Richard James and Spencer Hart.

And despite coming in far down the list, the debonair prince still get some raves and is said by the men's magazine to epitomize "true British style." 

Meanwhile, guess who topped the list of 50: Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens beat Robert Pattinson, Homeland's Damian Lewis and Idris Alba for the No. 1 spot. He is "always a class act," the magazine says.
