I made my way to Goodwood, which is in England synonymous with racing. I joined style sponsor, New & Lingwood, to place bets and enjoy horse races.
This year I had the pleasure of attending the Qatar Goodwood Festival for the first time. Goodwood is in England synonymous with racing and this particular horse racing tradition dates back to 1802 which was the year of the first public race meeting held by the third Duke of Richmond. #TheSportOfKings
Through the nineteenth century, ‘Glorious Goodwood’, as the press named it, became a highlight of the summer season. King Edward VII (who came almost every year) famously dubbed it “a garden party with racing tacked on”.
New & Lingwood has for the past 3 years been the official style partner of the horse racing festival. In my opinion they are perfect fit, being know for making bold and colourful garments that are glorious in every way.
For the occasion I wore a striking New & Lingwood jacket made from a blend of silk and cotton, woven in Italy by Ferla. I paired it with a pair of Tartan trousers, layered with a striped shirt and a midnight blue neckerchief. I picked a watch that would feel at home surrounded by horses, the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso, given its origins within the world of polo. This particular model is the Reverso Tribute Duoface and its blue dial complimented the purple New & Lingwood jacket exquisitely.
Yours sincerely, Mathias le Fèvre
