Royal Ascot Suit Hire FAQ

What is the royal enclosure dress code?

A morning suit of black, navy, or grey material, a shirt with a necktie (not a cravat), a waistcoat, black dress shoes with socks that cover the ankles, and, of course, a top hat in black or grey. All suits in our Royal Ascot collection meet these requirements when paired with a Top Hat.

What is the dress code for Queen Anne’s enclosure? 

A full-length two- or three-piece suit. Jackets and trousers should match material (morning dress is also permitted). A collared shirt with a necktie (patterns of a patriotic nature, for example, a national flag, are acceptable). Socks must be worn and should cover the ankle. 

Is there a dress code for the Windsor enclosure? 

Whilst the Windsor Enclosure has no official dress code, guests are encouraged to wear smart daywear. A hat, headpiece, or fascinator, along with a jacket and collared shirt, is encouraged.

What is the dress code for the Village enclosure?

A suit jacket or blazer (can be made of material different from the trousers). A full-length trouser or chino, a collared shirt with a necktie, bow tie or cravat (patterns of a patriotic nature, for example, a national flag, are acceptable). Socks must be worn and should cover the ankle.

Do you have to be in the Royal Enclosure to wear a morning suit? 

Absolutely not. You can wear a morning suit no matter the enclosure in which you’re spending your day. As we say at Rathbones Tailor, you can never be overdressed.

Do I have to wear a top hat? 

The only place you must wear a top hat is in the royal enclosure. You can remove your top hat when at a bar or restaurant within the royal enclosure.

What if I’m attending more than one day of racing? Do I need to pay more?

No! You’ve hired the suit for 8 days, how many times you wear it is up to you. Sleep in it if that’s your thing. Bit hot in the summer though.

Can you wear a top hat with a lounge suit?

No. You’ll only wear a top hat if you are wearing a morning suit.
