When going for a walk in the city or stand at the race course I like to wear spats and going for a more subtle look at this event I chose my dove grey linen spats over the more ostentatious white.
The silk tie is the splash of colour in this ensemble and I thought my Burgundy Repp stripe tie from Purdey's just perfect.

My wife and I brought a Picnic Basket with the esssential Champagne, sandwiches and crisps. And a couple of beach chairs; to make a day of the event.
It turned out that I was the only gentleman sporting a morning suit and topper and caught some attention from the other spectators -friendly comments, applauds and photo requests; very nice indeed. On the female side more women sported the classic broad-brimmed hats and high heels
