One of the biggest events on the sporting calendar takes place less than 2 miles away from our store this week, which is of course The Grand National Horse Racing Festival.

Known for its style and class, this race meeting is like no others. Starting on Thursday 9th April with the more laid back of the three days; Grand Opening Day. The day after is Ladies Day, were the best dressed competition takes place and finally on Saturday, the Grand National meeting itself. The main event takes place at 4:15pm, over a huge 4 mile course and just shy of a million quid going to the winner. Grand National day is also the only day of the year when your Nan becomes a raving gambling addict, picking 20 out of 30 horses and still finding way to lose.

We believe the days of wearing a suit to the races are gone. It’s been done and everyone is wearing one, so why not stand out from the crowd and make a fashion statement of your own!

Every man and his dog knows what a Primark and Next suit looks like and every man and his dog will only ever wear it at a wedding or race meeting anyway!

Why not buy something that you can wear anytime and with anything you want! Don’t be restricted to just wearing a suit and a suit only. With all this in mind we have come up with some alternative outfits that will help you arrive in style to the fashion event of the year so far!
