The Kentucky Derby provides a splendid excuse for men to get just as dressed up and decked out as the ladies! The modern Derby man possesses an unparalleled color palette. Sun-drenched, tropical colors in bold stripes or busy plaid and bright pastels steal the limelight. Although, if you want a more polished look, a classic navy or pinstripe blazer is always in style. But remember, gentlemen: The secret to looking great is confidence. Whatever you wear, wear it proud!

Party Fashion Tips

Brunch Event

Men, here’s your chance to steal the show! Go all out for a Brunch Event and sport a seersucker or three-piece tweed suit. Top it off with a fedora or bowler hat and ground your look with loafers.

Garden Party

You’ll want to be fashionable but casual. Slacks and a button-down shirt with tie is acceptable attire. Show your Derby spirit and break out some vibrant spring colors.

Backyard Party 

Relax and be comfortable. Jeans and even shorts are appropriate for a more informal affair. Class it up with a short-sleeve polo and official Derby ball cap.
