RACE COURSE READY WITH RIVER ISLAND

Well would you look at that! Summer has finally arrived 🙂

And for a lot of people that means its time to start planning what they’re going to be wearing to the races this year and that can sometimes by a tricky thing finding that perfect suit for any occasion especially the summer time races

But don’t worry lads I have got you covered on the suit front so you won’t need to look any further because I have 2 absolute belters for you

I’ve teamed up with River Island  to show you two outfits that will have you coming 1st, 2nd AND 3rd in those best dressed competitions at the races this year without a doubt…

So you want to rock a three piece suit this year and look like an absolute boss? This is the suit for you then! I’m seriously in love with this suit I feel like it has everything I would look for in a three piece especially with the design of the waistcoat. What I have actually noticed with both the suits is that River Island have really gone to town with the quaily and that’s not always something you get when it comes to high street tailoring but the moment you put this suit on you can feel the class oozing from it and for the races you want to be stepping it up a level with your suit game so this three piece is exactly what you need in your life. Being a skinny suit too it can easily be to tight but again like the quality River Island have perfected the fitting of a skinny fit suit and when you feel comfortable in what you are wearing you feel confident and that is exactly what you feel in this beauty. Being a brown dogtooth check I wanted to pair it with a similar coloured shirt and keeping with the fittings I’m wearing a muscle fit smart shirt open slightly as its summer and thought it would look great even without a tie. The waistcoat is probably my favourite thing as I have been looking for so long for a double breasted waistcoat as I think they are so so classy and with this chain detail too it just looks incredible in my eyes like if there was a waistcoat you should be wearing to a horse racing even then this is THE waistcoat it just make the three piece look so good.

No outfit is complete without a good pair of shoes, you know the saying “good shoes take you good places”! These loafers with tassels are a great summer choice and can be worn with all outfits throughout your summer but I think with this suit they look great and as its summer I went for a sockless look and nice brown framed sunglasses because you cant go to the races in the summer without a pair of good sunnies.

LOOK 2 – HERE

I am a big fan of a double breasted blazer as you can probably tell from the fact both of these looks involve a double breasted piece but both are completely different in their own right. I wanted to show you guys that you can have an incredibly well designed suit but you with your own twist on it you can really show people a thing or two at the races when it comes to dressing well. I just love the white tee and white trainers combined with the navy check, though it would also look great with a shirt and tie I wanted to put together something that you guys that don’t feel comfortable in a shirt and tie but want to a wear suit this look will be a great choice in the summer sun with a cold one in your hand as you cheer on your horse down the track. Another smart little detail I like that River Island have added to this suit similar to how the first outfit had the chain this jacket has a chrome effect lightning bolt lapel pin which I think is a super cool little touch, I also went with a nice floral pocket square with a light touch of blue to help compliment the blue and white look overall. I want to also give the trainers a special mention as they are super clean and I have mentioned before how this time of year a crisp white pair of trainers are a must and will look great with the majority of your outfits this summer. I don’t think many guys will wear trainers to the races so why blend in when you can stand out hey?

It feels so good to be back in a suit but it feels even better when they are this good! River Island have seriously upped the level of high street tailoring and as a guy who absolutely loves being suited and booted these two are an incredible addition to my suit collection and it would be for your collection too. Not only am I super impressed with the quality of these suits but the fit is also something I have found to be as close to perfect as you can get without having your suit especially fitted for you.

I really enjoyed creating this blog post for you guys and I hope you will find yourself the perfect suit for the races from River Island – HERE.
