Dressing for the races is all about adding some personality to your look and this spring racing season, men’s fashion has never looked better. Set tongues wagging in immaculately cut suits and refined accessories that set a new standard in style.
Tailoring is Key.
A well-tailored suit maketh the man so make sure yours fits perfectly. Consider the length of your pants, the cut of your jacket and utilise your local tailor if necessary – nothing looks worse than an oversized suit jacket or pants that are too short.

Easily transform your everyday suit into the perfect dapper raceday look with just a few simple accessories. Match your pocket square back to your shirt and tie, add some hardware with slick cuff links and a tie bar and finish with a neat dress watch.
Embrace the Unexpected.
Spice up your look by mixing and matching unexpected colours and prints. From ties in pastel colours worn with gingham print shirts to bold pocket squares worn with dove grey suits, the options are endless. If you’re not sure your combo works, check with your mates or significant other.
Try Something new
If there’s ever an occasion to try something new, it’s the races. Step outside your comfort zone and experiment with your styling – work a statement jacket, try wearing a fedora or sub out your usual tie for a fun bow-tie. Don’t be tempted to over do it, one or two new elements is all you need.

What do your shoes say about you
It’s well known that one of the first things women do when they spot a man, is check out his shoes. Avoid losing her attention by ensuring your footwear is neat, polished and unscuffed – and leave your white shoes at home, keep it slick and classic this season with a traditional Derby or Oxford style.
