What to Wear to the Races: Slater Menswear Style Guide

0 Comment

The Races – your perfect excuse to get dressed up and dapper this summer. If you are lucky enough to be attending a Race Day you’re going to want to look your best. Here’s our guide on how to make an impression in the style stakes this year:

Bring Home the Check

Tick all the right boxes in a slim fit checked three piece suit, we guarantee this look will put you firmly in the running for the best dressed man awards! Since we’re heading into summer we suggest stepping out in a brighter colour, light blue has been the shade of the season so far. Top Trend Tip: Stand out from the crowds with the addition of a horseshoe or double breasted waistcoat.

The Dark Horse

If a checked suit isn’t really your thing, you can still make a striking entrance in a more understated suit. Think Daniel Craig or Tom Hiddleston, both of these A-listers love a classic suit that has been tailored to perfection. A well turned-out gent wearing a plain suit with immaculate tailoring will always exude that vibe of utterly effortless style. Remember… if you buy any Slater Menswear suit you will get free alterations to ensure your suit has that perfect fit.

Make a Grand Entrance

So you really want to win that best dressed award? Why not splash a little cash and treat yourself to a luxury suit from our Designer range. Ted Baker, Magee and Sleek Street are just some of the well-known premium brands we stock and starting at only £199 they won’t cost you as much as you might have imagined.

Graceful Winner

If you don’t want to wear a suit, you don’t need to. You can don a fashionable tweed blazer and pair it with some smart trousers to still look formal enough to impress at the Races. Why not go for a luxurious Harris Tweed blazer and waistcoat look, it is almost impossible to look anything but smart in a Harris Tweed.
