Queen Anne enclosure
“Gentlemen are required to wear a suit with jacket and trousers of the same colour and pattern with a shirt and tie.
Gentlemen are kindly asked to wear a tie at all times and to note that bow ties and cravats are not allowed.
Socks must be worn.”
Quoted from the Royal Ascot racecourse official dress code website.
The dress requirement is not as strict in the Queen Anne enclosure. Although you will still see a lot of tailcoats along side the lounge suits. We can provide a sleek modern slim fit lounge hire suit from our collection as well as the traditional tailcoat attire. All of our Royal Ascot suit hires come with slim fit trousers for a more contemporary cut.
Fancy something that will wow the crowds? Why not treat yourself to a made-to-measure suit. You never know it may prove to be lucky, & if it is, then I’m sure you’ll want to spend your winnings on another one!
Please note all made-to-measure orders must be placed by the end of April to ensure delivery in time for Ascot.
