RACING SEASON IS ALL ABOUT STEPPING OUT OF THE CONFINES OF OFFICEWEAR AND INTO THE SARTORIAL GRANDEUR AND EXPERIMENTATION OF THE CARNIVAL. OUR DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO COMBINING SUITS, TIES AND SHOES THIS RACING SEASON FOUCSES ON ALL OUR KEY RACING PIECES.

PAL ZILERI

A SEASONAL EVERGREEN, THE BOLD CHECK SUIT CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF SPRING RACING CARNIVAL. THIS SINGLE-BREASTED SUIT FROM PAL ZILERI OR THE DOUBLE-BREASTED HARROLDS PRIVATE LABEL SUIT (PICTURED ABOVE) IS THE PERFECT FIRST STEP ON THE ROAD TO RACEDAY DRESSING.

PAL ZILERI

A SUBTLE TAKE ON A SPRING RACING CLASSIC, WINDOWPANE CHECK SUITS PROVIDE A DISCREET ELEMENT OF VISUAL TEXTURE TO PAIR WITH VIBRANT PRINTS LIKE THIS TOM FORD STRIPED TIE.

HARROLDS PRIVATE LABEL

BLUE IS A KEY RACING TREND SEASON AFTER SEASON AND THIS BLUE HARROLDS SUIT WITH MUTED CHECK IS THE PERFECT SUIT TO PAIR WITH A BLUE TIE AND BLUE SHIRT. ADD A TOUCH OF YELLOW WITH A LAPEL PIN to complete A MELBOURNE CUP DAY OUTFIT.

TOM FORD

FOR A CONTEMPORARY LOOK THAT IS RACES FRIENDLY, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THIS TOM FORD DOUBLE-BREASTED PINSTRIPE SUIT. KEEPING THE TONES OF YOUR POCKET SQUARE AND TIE BASED AROUND THE GREY OF THE SUIT GIVES THE LOOK A POLISHED, STYLISH FEEL. PLEASE NOTE: SOCKS ARE NON NEGOTIABLE FOR THE DRESSING RULES OF SPRING RACING CARNIVAL SO PAIR THIS SUIT WITH LACE UP SHOES OR GREY-HUE SOCKS AND LOAFERS.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER WHEN CHOOSING YOUR NECKWEAR IS THAT IT IS VITAL TO MATCH YOUR TIE TO YOUR SUIT AND SHIRT, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. YOUR CHOICE OF NECKWEAR SHOULD COMPLIMENT THE PROPORTIONS OF YOUR BODY, THE LAPELS OF YOUR SUIT AND THE COLOUR AND PATTERN OF YOUR SUIT AND SHIRT.

TOM FORD GREY KNITTED TIE

A KNITTED TIE ADDS AN EXTRA ELEMENT OF VISUAL TEXTURE TO AN OUTFIT. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO PROPORTION WHEN PAIRING YOURS WITH A DOUBLE-BREASTED SUIT AND REMEMBER YOUR COLLAR DEPTH, TIE WIDTH AND LAPEL WIDTH SHOULD ALL COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER SO STAY AWAY FROM SKINNY TIES AND COLLARS. COLOURWISE, THE COMPARATIVELY MUTED TONES OF THIS TIE WORK TO MAKE THE PINSTRIPES OF THE SUIT TAKE VISUAL PRECEDENCE.

TOM FORD STRIPED TIE

WHEN GOING BOLD, THE PATTERN ON YOUR TIE SHOULD BE LARGER AND MORE PRONOUNCED THAN ITS COMPLIMENTARY PATTERNS. PAIR LARGE PATTERNS LIKE THIS WITH SMALLER ONES FOR A BALANCED, COMPLIMENTARY VISUAL TEXTURE.

TOM FORD PATTERNED TIE

BOLD PATTERNS ARE A TRACKSIDE STAPLE BUT THERE ARE A FEW THINGS TO BEAR IN MIND. AVOID MIXING PATTERNS IN YOUR SUIT, SHIRT AND TIE THAT HAVE SIMILAR PROPORTIONS. A GENERAL GUIDELINE IS TO KEEP EITHER YOUR SUIT, SHIRT OR TIE SOLID TO ENHANCE RATHER THAN CONFUSE THE LOOK.

STEFANO RICCI BLUE TIE

It's important to keep your outfit tonal, as a rule your tie should be darker than your shirt and your shirt lighter than your jacket. Pair this textural tie with a crisp blue shirt and blue jacket.

MORESCHI BROWN DOUBLE MONKSTRAPS

THESE DOUBLE MONKS BY MORESCHI TYPIFY TWO KEY FOOTWEAR TRENDS OF THE SEASON; THE HAND-FINISHED LOOK AND HIGH POLISHED TOES. PAIR THESE WITH BLUE AND BLUE CHECK SUITS FOR RACING SEASON.

MORESCHI MIXED LEATHER OXFORD

TEAM THESE MIXED LEATHER OXFORD SHOES BY MORESCHI WITH BLACK, GREY OR BLUE SUITS TO ADD A TOUCH OF CHARACTER TO YOUR RACING DRESSING. DETAILS OFFER THE CHANCE TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD DURING RACING SEASON AND THESE OXFORDS ADD INSTANT CHARACTER.

CHURCH’S DOUBLE MONKSTRAPS

FOR A TONED-DOWN RACING OPTION CHURCH’S DOUBLE MONKSTRAPS OFFER REFINED PRESENCE THAT IS MADE TO LAST FOR GENERATIONS.
