While most men attending Wimbledon know that although the prestigious tennis championship’s spectator dress code has been relaxed over the years, they also are acutely aware that showing up in a black t-shirt like comedian Ricky Gervais is a dapper disaster.
And since the world-famous tournament is notorious for attracting some of the most stylish men on the planet – including menswear icon David Beckham – making an effort to don your best glad rags doesn’t go unnoticed. But how does one stand out in a sea of Panama hats and linen lounge suits? We’ve put together a few outfits to help you look the part and stay on-trend.
Say it with separates
From turning up with his son Romeo in matching suits or pairing together a smart set of separates, post-football David Beckham has become a sartorial barometer of sorts – whatever he wears is guaranteed to draw the crowd’s attention away from the action on Centre Court. To take inspiration from Beckham’s suit game, pair our Jackman suit jacket with our camel Cassidy chinos and accessorise with our Navy Floral Linen Blend tie.
Throw on a three-piece
When in doubt, dress up to dress down. Last year, British actor Tom Hiddleston – rumoured to be in the running to become the next James Bond – was spotted around SW1 wearing an effortlessly cool combination of a vivid navy three-piece suit and light blue-striped shirt. To get Tom’s look, pair our Kensington Blue Italian Wool 3-Piece Slim Fit Suit and Blue Bengal Stripe Slim Fit Shirt.
Picnic in pastel pink
With over 61,000 pounds of strawberries and cream (and countless bottles of champagne) devoured over Wimbledon fortnight, refusing to indulge and imbibe would be plain rude – and enjoying one of the Great British Summer’s greatest traditions while looking less than stylish is a crime. But it needn’t require much effort – our Pink Oxford Button Down Casual Shirt worn with camel Cassidy chinos is always a safe bet. To add some finishing touches, a lightweight knitted tie, braided brown leather belt and Farthing Tan Casual Brogues will keep the look sharp and grounded.
