The Spring Racing season has arrived and with it a touch of festivity as the weather warms up and gentlemen get a little more adventurous with their sense of style.
At Rundle Tailoring we have been dressing generations of men for the occasion and stock the largest range of quality suits and suits for hire in Newcastle and the Hunter.
Whether you are attending your local track or travelling further afield, here are our seasoned tips to looking dapper on the day, while still following the age-old traditions and race day etiquettes of the sport of kings.
Regardless of whether you are in the member’s stand or general admission, the Spring Racing Carnival is a time to embrace colour, patterns and accessories. Typically, member’s dress regulations include tailored pants, dress shoes, a collared shirt and tie and a suit jacket, sports coat or blazer. In general admission it’s your chance to get the guys together, suit up and stand out in the crowd for all the right reasons.
In terms of more corporate suiting, a slim-fit is popular and the classics – navy and grey – are a safe option that can be easily spruced up to take your everyday look to race day ready. Add unique pieces such as lapel and tiepins, with touches of colour in your pocketsquare and tie. For Ladies Day in particular, it is a nice touch to coordinate colours with your partner.
Checks are also particularly popular during Spring Racing and bring an element of flair and individuality. Often men will progress from a blue suit to checks as they become more adventurous with their style. Talk to our experienced team about how to own this winning look. The Gibson Woodard Navy Double Breasted suit is a standout.
Separates are also totally acceptable for the Spring Racing Carnival. Keep your look cool and effortless with lighter shades for your sports coat or blazer and again, dress for the occasion by accessorizing to up the style stakes.
