Triple Crown Style
Let’s be real. You probably don’t give a rat’s ass about horse racing. The first leg of the triple crown, The Kentucky Derby, is this weekend and you couldn’t care less.
That’s too bad because you’re missing a perfectly good opportunity to bring the stylistic A-game that you display Monday through Friday into your weekend look (and drink a couple of mint juleps while you’re at it). So why not hit up your local watering hole and catch the race in style? (Plus, check out our Q&A with The Kentucky Gent for more ideas on how to enjoy the Derby.)
Even us custom suit fanatics at Black Lapel take off our suits sometimes. But guys who get the most out of their suits split them up sometimes, and that’s exactly what we’re recommending you do this weekend. The following is a simple recipe for a sharp, yet casual, look that’s perfect for the watching the Derby.
For this look we put added a pop of bright color with the pocket square. If you’re looking to turn down the volume on this look, try a more tame pocket square like the alternatives shown here.
So now that you’ve got your look ready, all you need is a horse in the race. We’ll leave predicting a winner to the experts, but if you follow the advice above, we’re betting on you looking great.
