he racing day best known for its monochromatic dress code, Derby Day is most renowned for its classic, traditionalist tone. Black, white and grey can be a little boring if done wrong, so capitalising on tailoring and finding a way to refresh this dress code is important. While tradition speaks for itself with regards to this prestigious race day’s mandated colour scheme, we encourage fresh interpretations that will pay homage to the past but will still be fit for contemporary viewing.
It can be a little tricky to do justice to a colour scheme that is typically considered basic; after all black and white can be tricky to get just right. Your clothing and apparel choices for this day should be executed to perfection.
Traditionally, morning suits were worn by gentlemen attending Derby Day. While a well fitted black suit will work perfectly for the dress code, it is our recommendation to play with different prints and materials. A suit in a larger check will work wonders and will be a refreshing change from the sea of black suits you see on Derby Day. Likewise, a lighter grey suit will also do justice to your Derby Day look.
