FASHION SHOOT: Silks & Saddles

Horse racing might be winding down, but the polo season is still going strong. Inspired by equestrian events, we go see a man about a horse

Saddle your dreams before you ride em. ~Mary Webb

It’s a matter of horses for courses, you might say. Choosing the right attire for the right occasion is never more important than for a day at the races or the polo. It’s not all about the women's fascinators and their glamourous gowns. The well-groomed masculine figure is just as important an element in the fashion parade for a day with the horses. 

For us chaps, the sidelines of the racecourse and the polo field offer a plethora of diverse looks: from elegant three-pieces with neckties and matching hankies to casual sports jackets and linens and slip ons. Either way, getting your refined look spot on is the key to standing out from the champagne-swilling and zealously cheering crowds.

So gallop into your fashionanble stride with this selection of looks for all things equestrian.
