WHAT Austin Reed Gentleman’s Day
WHEN 26th November 2010
WHERE Newbury, West Berkshire 

Newbury the Racecorse
Last month, I was invited by Austin Reed to take part in The Newbury Racecourse. As one of the judges for the Gentlemen's day winter style competition in conjunction with Austin Reed-Newbury's first ever fashion partnership offering best dressed man membership to their newly launched Q club. I was so honored to take part and search for the best dressed men on the day.  Furthermore, Amanda and I were scouting the course for candidates for the Winter Style competition to find the best dressed gentleman, with plenty of great prizes up for grabs including an Austin Reed Q Club membership.
On Friday November 26th, The spectacular day began with me being interviewed by the ITV. Gentlemen’s Day was so successful and it encouraged every man to dress in their winter best with prizes including annual membership to Austin Reed’s brand new Q Club for the most fashionable fellows, a refreshing change from another Saturday of DIY or Christmas shopping. Gentlemen’s Day offered the great winter escape - a casual yet fashionable day to catch up with friends.
Newbury Racecourse are making special room for men this winter at the races. Approximately 30,000 people were expected to descend on the racecourse for the 3 day fixture which includes the celebrated Hennessy Gold Cup. One of the highlights of the jump racing calendar.
Newbury Racecourse Gentlemen's Day is a response to the Ladies Days that have dominated the summer racing season and aims to take the crown of racing style from Ladies Days by hosting the largest Gentlemen’s Day in the racing calendar.

As a judge i was seeking a Gentleman who clearly made an impression, had great details in his outfit yet looks effortless. As me and Amanda scouted for Gents around the Horserace we found roughly 10-15 well dressed men and put them forward to the competition.
