Royal Ascot Style Guide - Morning Suits
Ascot Racecourse was founded by Queen Anne in 1711 and has kept it’s royal connection ever since – our Queen Elizabeth 2 has owned 20 winners at Ascot.
The Royal Meeting is held every year during the 3rd week of June. If you’re lucky enough to be invited into The Royal Enclosure you’ll be required dress up. In 1807 Beau Brummell, head of the Prince Regent’s fashion police, decreed that men of elegance should wear “ waisted black coats and white cravats with pantaloons”. Mercifully today you only have to wear morning dress with a top hat.
Here at Budd we like to make your style choices as easy as possible so we have put together a selection of the best morning suits which will ensure that you look your best in the Royal Enclosure.
For classic, timeless style head down the arcade from us to Favourbrook for the best classic morning suits as well as some fantastic waistcoats all made in London.
Style your classic black morning suit with muted greys, blues and indigos for an elegant and timeless look.
Head to Savile Row for a modern take on morning dress with a grey three-piece suit.
Shades of pink complement this three-piece morning suit perfectly.
Add some contrast to your morning wear with a classic black morning coat, grey waistcoat and pin stripe trousers from Moss Bros.
Shades of light blue with a touch of Spring yellow makes for a stylish accompaniment.
