Tweed Is The Fashion Fabric Of Choice
Tweed is still very much the order of the day. Traditional tweed is now making way for bold patterns and contemporary styles which turn heads and makes a statement. The beauty of tweed is that there is so much more scope without the limitations of other fabrics given its classical roots. For our customers, our tweed designs offer customers a choice which is both stylish and refined with a fresh, contemporary twist on this timeless fabric.
Baker boy caps are becoming increasingly popular for men and women for the more casual race days. Tweed is such a good foundation for your outfit and for men, teaming a bright silk tie with classic tweed not only adds a wonderful pop of colour to an outfit but also allows you to add further personality to your look. Our collection of Italian silk ties feature elephants through to stags, ducks and spots! Our biggest sellers from our collections are our ladies and men’s coats in a rich colour palette of forest greens, deep reds and sumptuous browns. Ladies can also style their coat with a statement hat coupled with vintage accessories for a stunning look evocative of a by-gone era of charm and elegance.
Top Tip Takeaway
The great British summer weather is always unpredictable. Our key tip would be to layer up and add warm accessories. The finest racing outfits are always stylish in an elegant, minimalistic way and if you like to wear something unique think traditional with an opulent twist. A smart outer layer is an essential item for your racing outfit. A beautifully tailored piece such as a tweed coat will exude refined British style and be your ‘go to’ piece throughout the seasons for any occasion. For gentlemen, a three-piece tweed suit offers versatility for the race day and beyond; Our waistcoats look fantastic teamed with a shirt and jeans for a dressed down weekend.
