With a pair of Hoggs Beauly Chinos or the Laksen Broadland Moleskin Trousers and a Soprano Silk Tie, you’ll be ready to top off your smart country look with a tweed cap from Heather, Hoggs of Fife, Laksen or Jack Pyke. Alternatively, a smart felt brimmed hat from Alan Paine of Heather will help keep the sun out of your eyes, the rain off your head and are great for throwing in the air when your 50-1 shot comes in.
