October Spring racing season is the perfect excuse for stylish men to invest on more new clothes. Of course, choosing race-day appropriate pieces is your shopping priority, but you also want pieces you can wear all year round that work with your current wardrobe. Marks & Spencer has us modern gents covered. My 2 simple outfits below worked for all occasions during my 48 hours flying over to Melbourne for Melbourne Cup. The best part? My entire weekend wardrobe cost less than $500.
