ROYAL ASCOT 101

WHEN THE SARTORIAL STAKES ARE AS HIGH AS THOSE ON YOUR BETTING SLIP, IT PAYS TO GET A LITTLE INSIDER INFORMATION
• WORDS: C. STEWART

Got yourself an invitation to Royal Ascot? The world’s most famous race meeting is an exhilarating day out but it does come with its own set of style rules that must be followed. Your luck’s in then – we’re here to help.

It’s tradition to follow the Royal Ascot dress code, but it will differ depending on the type of ticket you have. If you have access to Ascot’s Royal Enclosure then it’s a must to wear a morning suit. Our Royal Ascot hire collection has been designed to meet the dress code of this prestigious event, so you’re free to relax and enjoy yourself.

It’s best to have your hire booked by the end of May but if you get a last-minute ticket, still come and see us as we can sort your outfit as long as we have stock left.

If you’re in the grandstand, then you’re required to wear a suit with a shirt and tie. You’ll find that morning suits are still a really popular choice even in the public enclosures, so feel free to go for one if you want to go all out. If you decide to stick with a suit, we recommend plumping for a three-piece and pairing it with a colourful silk tie and pocket square for a suitably grand outfit.
