Horse Racing Season is under starter’s orders! It’s no secret that race day is the perfect excuse to dress up and have fun with friends; a few drinks, a few bets and your finest suit will give a great taste of the sophisticated.
However, whether it’s a trip to Ascot or Cheltenham, the suit is what makes the man and makes your best impression.
Are you asking yourself what to wear for the spring 2019 Races? For the best men’s style at the racecourse, read on…
Race Day dress codes are based upon timeless traditions of the British gentleman – so the natural choices, for many, are blacks, navys and greys; these traditional men’s suit styles give a great formal statement for any occasion. The natural choice to start off our Men’s race day style guide has to be the range of Scott & Taylor Occasions suits; with a trio of fits and colours that mesh beautifully with race day tradition.
This sophisticated, flexible and versatile men’s race day suit is a stylish addition to any wardrobe; ideal for the Cheltenham Festival or the renowned York Races.
For the younger racegoer, try a sleek, rakish Limehaus profile, with standout suits in fashionable slim and skinny fits that are sure to turn heads – including our signature raspberry pink pick & pick suit, or the ever-popular blue & plum check.
Of course, these classic city looks are an enduring style for any occasion. But for many, race day requires something different entirely – a country style tweed or checked pattern may well be more fitting if you’re surrounded by horses and greenery.
If this sounds like your perfect Race Day dress code, Gibson London and Marc Darcy are the must have brands to provide a mark of the British nobleman. With statement checks, high quality fabrics and a real Best of British look, Gibson London and Marc Darcy feature an unbeatable selection.

And where there’s a shirt, there should be cufflinks. Browse our range of stylish cufflinks now, and add that finishing flair to your men’s race day outfit.
The tie is also, of course, an essential component of the Race Day dress code.
