In just a few days’ time, King Charles III will be taking part in England’s first coronation in 70 years, continuing a tradition that dates back to the 10th century. Which makes now a good time to brush up on another monarchial tradition, the issuing of royal warrants, which has been a precedent since the 1400s.

Royal warrants are issued to businesses that provide goods to the royal household, a broad category that encompasses everything from condiments to bespoke suits. It should come as no surprise that King Charles, a lifelong natty dresser and champion of British craft and manufacturing, issued a swath of warrants to domestic tailors, shoemakers, knitters, and more during his time as the Prince of Wales.

While Charles’s ascension from the Prince of Wales to the king will in time change how his warrants are displayed—more on that here—the goods below all come from firms he patronized in his former role. Whether they provide handmade Panama hats, bullion-embroidered smoking slippers or cashmere hoodies, each may claim to be fit for a king.
