Royal Ascot, the most anticipated event in the horse racing calendar, takes place from Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24th June. Five days of socialising, fine dining, style, and of course races!
Whilst eyes are certainly on the horses and jockeys, Royal Ascot is also synonymous with sartorial elegance.
The event upholds a strict dress code that requires men to wear black or grey morning dress in the Royal Enclosure. That includes waistcoat and tie, black or grey top hat and plain black shoes.
In the Queen Anne Enclosure men are required to wearing a matching suit with shirt and tie, whilst in Windsor Enclosure smart dress is encouraged.
There is a surprising amount of choice and personalisation you can bring to this traditional attire to make you stand out from the crowd. Believe me, wearing such a suit makes you feel so special that it can only add to a great day out. It did with mine last year!
Whilst, rugby star Thom Evans (below) set hearts racing when he wore bespoke Stephen Williams London to ladies day at last year’s Cheltenham Festival.
For Royal Ascot 2017, in addition to my bespoke service, I will be offering a ready-to-wear tailcoat, waistcoat and dress trousers that can be purchased or hired for your day at the races.
The black tailcoat with blue contrast stitching features my signature lining in black with white crest (pictured right), a Prince of Wales check double-breasted waistcoat, and striped dress trousers.
