Something comfortable, yet simple. Just a shirt breeches and a simple waist coat.

The image is small and probably I apologize, here is Louis XVI with the members of the order of Saint Espirit. On June 13th, 1775.

Lovely, his face looks so kind and appealing. And the revolutionaries thought he was a blood-thirsty tyrant! :roll:

He also looks very noble. He's a handsome man too. I've read on here before that his portraits never match the descriptions of him we read in books - how true!!! :king:

I doubt so! He was kind and mild but... not a special good-looking man :?

Ah, beauty - a subjective thing, and always in the eye of the beholder.
