Odds on a winning suit:
It’s likely been a while since you have dressed in full suiting attire, but now is the time. Step up your suiting game with these new suits and look like a winner on race day.
Mixing and matching suits separates is a common practice when dressing for the races. The Robertson Slim Stretch Check Suit is a good example of how you can get the most out of a new suit - check pants remain on trend and the pants can be worn separately with a shirt, like the crisp white Maxly Slim Dress Shirt for a smart casual outfit, or the whole suit can be worn together for a dressier occasion.
Waistcoats are have made a welcome comeback in men’s fashion with thanks to the Peaky Blinders influence, so you could add the popular Robertson Slim Check Waistcoat for a classic three-piece suit look.
A classic navy suit is always a winner, add a subtle on-trend check and it’s sure to be a champion! The Zak Slim Check Suit is a slim fit and looks great teamed with a classic chocolate dress shoe.
Coordinate this rich navy suit with mint accessories, this paisley pattern of the Marquis Paisley Tie and matching Pocket Square look super sharp – and don’t forget your Mint Lestrade Flower Lapel Pin. The lapel pin is an excellent example of a detail that adds that extra touch of class to your outfit.
You asked and we delivered! Emerald has grown in popularity in suiting accessories down to a demand for green-toned accessories to match green dresses for formal occasions.
We are seeing men’s fashion step into the limelight to embrace bolder colours, which is seen in the popularity of the Blair Emerald Slim Stretch Suit. What a better place to test out lucky emerald than at your first Race Day of the season!
The rich green tone works well with a classic white shirt and modern black accessories and is sure to be a standout in the crowd! Don’t forget the finishing touches, with the Classic Cuff Link, Tie Pin and matching Flower Lapel Pin.
