The Galway Races

It’s official, the Galway Races are finally here! This has to be one of Ireland’s most loved events year in year out. From the excitement of winning in Ballybrit to dancing the night away at the Radisson, the delicious food and street performers filling the city with an electric buzz that you can almost feel the hairs on your arm stand up, the Galway races have it all!

One of the first things everything thinks of when we plan of heading to the races is what on earth do you wear? The norm is a suit but you don’t always have to be wearing a three piece suit to look dapper! I’ve put together a few different options that would look great.
Race Look 1

  • Blazer: Selected Homme
  • Navy wool knit: Selected Homme
  • Chinos: Selected Homme
  • Shirt: Marnelli
  • Brogue: Brent Pope (Style: Papa)

I love the fact that you still look extremely smart even when you take off the blazer. This is a win win for me!


Race Look 2


  • Blazer: Selected Homme
  • Shirt: Remus
  • Waistcoat: Benetti
  • Chinos: Selected
  • Brogue: Tommy Bowe, Llyod & Pryce.

This attire is bound to turn heads for best dressed. It boasts elegance and style without being too loud. It’s extremely comfortable too which is very important!

Both of these outfits are available from Detail Menswear, Carlow.

Here are some of my favourite looks & inspo from Pinterest.


Enjoy the races & thanks for reading,

Chris.
