Colour and texture are to the fore in the Chester Barrie jacket collection. Urban tweeds have drape and warmth and come in petrol blue, russet and moss green as well as the more classic hues.
Checks and tartans also play their part bringing highlight tones and surface interest.
The standout piece from the collection is the camel blazer – a very modern interpretation of an almost forgotten classic. Here the model wears the jacket underneath a tactile cashmere coat. This ensemble is a great alternative look from tweed for The Cheltenham Festival. Like the model, team with a polo in dark red, green or navy to add depth and a pop of colour. The polo also means there is no need for a scarf, thereby keeping the clean lines of the coat and blazer on view.
Other key coats are:
Double breasted Ulster coat with its wide collar to protect from the cold weather at the races and its large patch pockets to keep the hands warm and provide easy access to your racing paper, pen and betting slips.
A youthful take on the classic Chesterfield coat with a contemporary windowpane check.
The smart Paletot coat in tweed with velvet collar – perfect for the more formal racing days such as the Christmas races and Cheltenham.
Occasionwear celebrates the ultra-classic by adding a contemporary sophistication to tuxedos and smoking jackets.
Velvets in chocolate, navy and coal black are fashioned into modern smoking jackets with rich, deep Mogador shawl collars in complementary tones. This is dress wear for when it matters most; for the Red Carpet, society balls and glamorous weddings.
Our pick of the suits for racedays are:
