Royal Ascot Morning Dress

For the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot traditional morning dress otherwise known as top hat and tails is the compulsory dress code for gentlemen.

A black morning suit is classic attire, however a grey morning suit is also just as acceptable and worn by many. If you decide on wearing a black tailcoat jacket, the trousers should be the classic grey & black stripe morning trouser.

However, if you decide to wear a grey tailcoat, then the morning trousers should also be plain grey and made from the same cloth as the tailcoat.

A waistcoat must be worn at all times and are here you can added a little more individual style. It is acceptable to wear coloured waistcoats rather than the traditional dove grey that used to be insisted upon.

A crisp white shirt or pale coloured shirt with white collar & cuffs. No more than 1" of the cuff should be visible and shirt should be double cuff for wear with cufflinks.

A tie is also required, if wearing a coloured waistcoat then this should complement rather than match the waistcoat. No cravats.
