Suave and sophisticated is the call for the Men’s Racewear category, suited to the well-groomed gent sporting an outfit that is coordinated, well put together, with a hint of swagger. Choose traditional race day attire or something with a modern twist, whilst ensuring minimum standards of suit and tie, with a hat an optional extra.
