What to wear to Race Day

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.
