Royal Ascot 2015: The Oliver Brown Diary

  When the sun’s shining (and the horse you backed is first past the post!) there’s no finer way to spend a summer’s day than at Royal Ascot. The team headed down last week to set up shop at this most famous of all British race meets. It was a record few days for us, with more top hats and waistcoats sold than ever before. We were delighted to see so many of our morning suits in all their glory worn by many of our regular customers – and a few famous faces, too.

We heard Mr Goodman was so enamoured with proprietor Kristian Robson's tie, he bought it from him there and then. He obviously knows good taste when he sees it!
