Royal Ascot is between 16th and 20thg June this year. As ever, there are questions about what to wear and Oliver Brown, the Chelsea-based menswear shop that supplies formal wear for all occasions, has good advice on the topic, as can be seen in this video.
Kristian Robson, Oliver Brown's Creative Director, gave me some good additional advice in relation to waistcoats, hats and coats, as follows:
“I think people will go bright this year with their waistcoats, people seem to be getting more adventurous”
“With a view to top hats I would say always go for black as opposed to grey”
“I personally prefer a black morning coat to a grey morning suit and this is most certainly our most popular style in the store however we are seeing grey becoming more popular”
