Cheltenham Festival 2020: Best Dressed Gentleman - A Hand Tailored Suit

Cheltenham Festival 2020: Best Dressed Gentleman

This past week, from Tuesday, 10th March to Friday, 13th March, we saw the prestigious Cheltenham Festival 2020. Located at Prestbury Park near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, the Cheltenham Racecourse is one of the most famous in England. The Cheltenham Festival features several Grade I races such as the Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Champion Hurdle, the Queen Mother Champion Chase, the Ryanair Chase, and the Strayers' Hurdle. Let's take a look at the best-dressed gentleman of the Cheltenham Festival 2020.

Peter Phillips

Peter wore a camel tweed overcoat in a smart heavy wool fabric with hidden buttons. At his sleeve, you can see the silk beige liner poking through. He wore his coat over a smart black single-breasted suit with a white custom-made button-up shirt with a purple patterned tie. He opted for a darker-than-his-overcoat mid-brown hat with brown ribbon hatband.

Mike Tindall

Mike wore a smart brown heavy wool overcoat with contrasting notched lapels with half wool and half rich brown velvet (very on-trend this season). He wore a tie with a purple background and blue spots, which complemented his wife's outfit nicely.

Rich Ricci 

Rich wore a classic blue single-breasted three-piece suit in a rich blue with a large contrasting check pattern in white. His suit has notched lapels and flap pockets. He wore a waistcoat with a collar, a crisp white shirt, and a pink-patterned tie (which looks to be Hermes).

Luc Chaudhary

Luc wore another classic suit (like Rich) but a single-breasted two-piece in navy. He also wore a crisp white shirt and a pink tie, which also appeared to be made by Hermes.
