What to wear at the races?

Posted on March 09 2020

Leonard Silver has long been dressing men for the races. We have Beverley Racecourse on our doorstep and regularly supply men’s suits and our ever-popular tweed suits for many race day events including Cheltenham and Ascot to name a few.
The dress code for Cheltenham and early Spring race day events is weather dependent but a tweed suit is smart. A tweed jacket, flannel trousers, smart shirt with a contrast waistcoat like moleskin are also acceptable as Corduroy Trousers or Waistcoat. A knitted silk tie is also a less formal touch and some fine English brogues are essential.
Summer Race Day events are again weather dependent and a fine wool or mohair suit are perfect for warmer weather. Again a Linen Jacket, smart shirt and chinos and some Italian loafers are also acceptable.
