Many clients have recently been ordering casual separates. This involves pairing some chino trousers with a casual style jacket in a cotton or linen blend. Last year we saw the double-breasted style of jacket making a small appearance but I think we will see it make an even bigger mark at this year’s spring carnival. Blue will be everyone’s go to colour, however simply adding contrast buttons on the jacket is a often a nice touch to differentiate your bespoke garment.
Use bright colours. Whether you’re daring enough to wear a brighter coloured jacket or simply adding some colour in the tie or pocket square, a splash of colour will always make you stand out in the crowd. Pocket squares are a must for racing, don’t leave home without one.
For spring carnivals try to steer away from your suit attire looking too corporate, with bold pin stripes. As a general rule of thumb, I wouldn’t recommend stripes. If you are looking at wearing double-breasted make sure it fits, there is nothing worse then wearing a double-breasted jacket that is too big for you.
