One of the classiest sporting events of the year happens to be this weekend. Our recipe for success? Light fabrics to keep you cool in the heat, an eye for detail, and a hint of bourbon.
The best Derby outfits pay close attention to detail. The Brackish Stono tie provides a bold accent to your ensemble. Wear this tie with memories of endless summer days outside. The colors evoke feelings of the sun on your back and the water washing over your bare feet.
2. Ledbury Tamanar Linen Cotton Button Up $165
This navy and white, linen and cotton blend shirt is extremely versatile. While linen is traditionally a casual fabric, the cotton blend helps to keep this shirt crisp, clean and ready to wear more formally, as well.
3. Hardwick Windowpane Sportcoat $440
A beautiful 100% Silk donegal in taupe with a light blue windowpane from Lanificio Di Pray, offered in Hardwick's light-weight soft construction. While this coat is fully lined, the lightweight silk helps keep things cool.
A new twist on the classic loafer, detailed with a nautical-style knot of premium American rawhide. Crafted for sockless comfort of American steer leather with a burnished finish that imparts a vintage patina. Soft and flexible from the start, these loafers gain even more character over time.
The Franklin 5-Pocket is incredibly comfortable and perfect for spring and summer months. Made of a lightweight, washed cotton twill, these pants are sure to become your new casual go-to during warmer days. Perfect to dress up for the Derby or down for drinks with the guys.
Inspired by horse races such as the Belmont Stakes and the Kentucky Derby, Over Under wanted to create a piece that a true sporting gentleman could be proud to wear in the field or at Churchill Downs.
The Bourbon Nº 22 is steeped with six-year-old barrel aged Kentucky straight bourbon, best appreciated by aficionados with a southern state of mind who understand the subtle nuances in fine Kentucky whiskey. Notwithstanding the heat and spice you would expect from bourbon, look for notes of smokey oak, vanilla, tobacco, and fruit. Pairs well with a mint julep or two!
