Unusual 3 Piece Harris Tweed Suit Unveiled At Cheltenham Festival

Posted by Tweedmans on 23rd Mar 2016

A rather unusual 3 piece Harris Tweed suit was unveiled last week at the Cheltenham Festival. Possibly the largest 3 piece Harris Tweed suit ever made, and it was for a horse!

Yes the tailor-made Harris Tweed suit was the world's first ever three piece tweed suit made for a horse. Apparently it took as much fabric as 10 men's 3 piece Harris Tweed suits to make.

Morestead the veteran racehorse wore the 3 piece suit with matching custom tweed cap as well as a shirt and tie for the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival amidst the delight of race-goers and the media.

The tweed suit was designed by former Alexander McQueen apprentice Emma Sandham-King and commissioned by William Hill.
Emma spent 4 weeks creating the tweed suit and said that it was one of the most challenging projects she has worked on.

Now that's the true meaning of a  "clothes horse".
