Cheltenham Festival Sartorial Solutions with Paul Nicholls
03 Mar 2016
With the highly anticipated Cheltenham Festival fast approaching, we spoke to Paul Nicholls, former champion jockey and now renowned champion horse trainer, about all things style and how to dress to impress at this year's event. Although there is no ‘official’ dress code for the Cheltenham Festival, how would you say the style of dress differs in the Club Enclosure, Tattersalls and Best Mate enclosures? You'll find most people wearing plain blue and grey suits in the Best Mate Enclosure, while in the Tattersalls and Club enclosures there are much more three-piece tweed suits. Do you follow any style rules yourself during the festival? I always wear my Oliver Brown cashmere overcoat! What will you be wearing this year? I'll be wearing a sleeveless jumper from Oliver Brown with my two-piece tweed suit each day. And will you be wearing a hat? Yes, in fact I quite often wear an Oliver Brown tweed cap. What’s the biggest style faux pas you’ve noticed over the years at the festival? The biggest style faux pas are pink linen suits in the winter! What’s the best way to stand out at the festival? In a good way, of course! I think it has to be a beautifully tailored three-piece tweed suit, a smart overcoat and a trilby - or a smart tweed cap to dress the look down. Will you be heading to the Festival this year? Take a look at our tweed suit or our complete suits and tailoring collection for more race-day style inspiration.
