Royal Ascot – Gentlemen, What To Wear At The Races?

Hats as shown at Royal Ascot

Men are you ready for the races? Here a is quick guideline in what you should wear this week at the Royal Ascot. Us women love men in suits. The British flag vests are a nice touch for this year. We love when you take a great deal of care and thought in getting the look.

Royal Ascot – Men’s Dressing Guidelines

  1. Men entering the enclosure, the approved palette includes grey or black only. Accents of colour on ties and waistcoats are permitted — opt for playful shades of pale pink or sky blue — but cravats in any shade are a no-go.
  2. A gentleman may remove his top hat within a restaurant, private box, or within any enclosed seating area, suggests the new Style Guide, but the hat must be worn at all other occasions. The customisation of top hats (we dread to think) is also strictly forbidden.
  3. Men should wear classic brogues or lace-ups in black — choose anything else (trainers, flip-flops) and you’ll be shown the door.
