Wimbledon is here, and if you’re attending, by now you’ll be wondering what to wear to the most prestigious tennis event of the year. Luckily, we’re on hand to help get you into the swing of things.
Dress to Impress
Sartorially speaking, the rules at Wimbledon are now far more flexible than they once were. However, if you’re lucky enough to be invited into the Royal Box, there’s still a stricter dress code firmly in place. To ensure you’re not refused entry like a famous Formula One driver was back in 2015 (sorry, Lewis), we suggest sticking to formal shirts and pairing our classic tailored navy suit with a button-down shirt, silk tie and dark brown brogues.
Assuming the sun is shining (we’re an optimistic bunch), a lightweight grey linen suit offers the ideal way to keep cool yet still look presentable. Simply team yours with a white formal shirt and black leather shoes – adding a vibrant silk pocket square for a splash of personality.
For those that want to take advantage of the relaxed rules, the best way to do so is with a short-sleeved polo shirt. Stylish and luxuriously soft, ours come in a variety of colourways (including red, white, khaki and blue) and pair perfectly with some flat front chinos and smart-casual footwear.
