Spring carnival is here, Archetypes. For most of us, this is the perfect excuse to enjoy a cool one in the sun whilst looking our sharpest. Though the first may come naturally, the latter may require some planning for the everyday gent.

If you’re the casual race-goer who wants to keep it relaxed in the GA section without sweating it out in a blazer all day, perhaps hold off from buying that new suit. Instead think about putting together a more casual get-up with a creative and sophisticated edge.

We reckon our slim fitting Blue Club Oxford is a great option to create the perfect canvas. Simply add a silk knit tie and pair of tailored chinos to complete your dapper look. The timeless Club Oxford is not only a twist on the traditional shirt, but also a great addition to your everyday Archetype wardrobe.


Alternatively, for those who are confident and adventurous, you can stay with the theme of spring racing carnival and get jazzy with of our signature florals.

If you’re a VRC members, or planning to spend some time in The Birdcage, it’s probably best to throw in a dark blazer to ensure you meet the dress code. If anything, this is only going to add to your look.

Just remember, if you don’t hit a bet on the day, there’s still one trifecta you’re guaranteed; ‘Look good, feel good, play good’.
