Cheltenham Festival 2020 - Race Day Style Guide!
The impending Cheltenham Festival 10 - 13 March 2020 is one of the biggest dates in the horse racing calendar. Whether it's your first time attending or you are a seasoned regular, our invaluable style tips are well worth a look. When you attend an event which celebrates the very best of racing with the finest horses, jockeys, owners and trainers battling it out for the highest honours, their reputations and over £4.5 million of prize money you need to look the part.
So... What to wear?!
There's no reason at all why you can't style a little less formal and yet keep your look sharp. Especially at an outdoor event such as Cheltenham the much more favourable way to dress for many gentlemen is by mixing it up a little. Wearing your suit jacket and waistcoat with a well pressed slim-fitting pair of chinos, or indeed jeans (but do tread carefully), is the fashion forward way to go!
The weather at the Cheltenham Festival tends to be cold, damp and unpredictable, so an overcoat can be a smart choice. While function is paramount, it should not be at the expense of form, so make sure your coat compliments the rest of your outfit. If you know you'll be outside for most of the day and are not keen on suiting up then one of our stylish formal overcoats with a shirt and waistcoat or tie will keep you above the benchmark.
Stick with Suave Owl and you'll pick a winner every time!

Take care to ensure the waistcoat is as well fitted as your suit and that you always leave the last button undone.
Be sure to compliment the suit/blazer and personalise your look with tie/bow tie and pocket square.
Don't let the cold compromise your style. Layer up with a thin thermal underlayer which nobody will ever see!
