It’s that time of the year again; dust off that top hat because the Grand National is upon us. One of the most looked forward to days in the British Horseracing calendar.



Sporting pursuits are often a close-run thing. It all comes down to the finer details, regardless of what enclosure you’re in. You can’t go wrong with a sharp suit and the Ted Tweed Herringbone Check Suit is a dark horse in the running. A bit of a no-brainer for me is the Claudio White Racing Horse Shirt, a must-have piece for the Grand National. I thoroughly enjoy race season and putting my outfit together, but no puzzle is ever complete without a Bakerboy hat.



As any racing enthusiast knows, away from the track, the real competition is a sartorial one. Even though some racecourses allow casual attire, I always think it’s a safe bet to go for a smarter dress code and wear a matching jacket and trousers. This Windowpane Three-piece Suit by Marc Darcy will definitely become the talking point of most people’s conversations. Don’t let yourself down at the last fence by forgetting your accessories. All you need now is a stylish silver pocket watch and a pair of jazzy socks. A bit of luck wouldn’t go amiss either!



The golden-brown shade of the Simon Templar Suit has a slightly more Spring feel to it than your standard go-to navy suit. It’s the perfect race day suit that is sure to turn heads. Wear with a crisp white shirt from Guide London and a pair of Barker McClean Brogues.



Firstly, you need a great suit. The Marc Darcy Harding is sure to command attention, with its striking colourful checked pattern and tailored fit. Continue your standout vibes with the Claudio Pheasant Shirt, belt and some shoes polished to perfection.
