Every summer the world’s best players converge on the iconic courts of Wimbledon to compete for the most prestigious titles in tennis. As well as the array of white-clad tennis stars gracing this historic tournament, there are also plenty of celebrities to spot in the spectator stands and the exclusive Royal Box.
Who attends and what they wear has become as much a part of the buzz and spectacle as the matches themselves, with particular attention paid to who sports the snappiest suits. So, in that spirit, grab yourself some strawberries and cream and a glass of something fizzy, and admire our list of the best dressed men at Wimbledon this year.
This former England rugby captain looked relaxed and cool in this white tailored suit, wisely combining classic style with a heat-reflecting colour.

Bringing some classic style to the occasion, James Middleton sported a navy double-breasted blazer with white trousers as he accompanied his sister Pippa to the event. It’s a look not everyone could pull off, but with his well-groomed beard and perfect choice of shoes, he got the tone just right.
