MANLY COLOUR AND ELEGANCE – IAN MCCLOSKEY, INN STYLE MENSLAND
Colour and vibrant patterns are not restricted to women this racing season with the men really standing out with floral shirts in bright colours.
While comfort is always a factor, men are continuing to appreciate a quality suit with a good cut and the slim fitting suits are remaining popular.
Suit wise, if men are going for a more refined look, blue is an on trend colour and ideal for going from day to night events.
While it is not vital, it does look good when a man matches his suit or race wear with his partner and this can be as simple as a matching tie or shirt, or why not add a tie bar or pin for that extra something with your outfit.
When it comes to choosing a suit, it is always recommended to get fitted a couple of weeks out from a race day to ensure any hemming or alterations can be done in time and it provides plenty of comfort as well as looking good.
