I was tasked with swapping my snapback and hoodie for a dapper 3-piece ready for the St Leger Festival Lakeside Village Gentlemen’s Day, Friday 14th September.
If you’re a regular around here you’ll know my go to look is a snapback and hoodie. However, my usual style just isn’t going to cut it for this years St Leger Festival at Doncaster Racecourse.
In a bid to get me up to scratch I’ve teamed up with Lakeside Village, who are this years sponsor for the Gentlemen’s Day, to get me looking sharp. Now if I’m going to step back into the smart, stylish and sophisticated world, then I want to do it properly. So I set off to Lakeside Village in Doncaster to have a scout around their various options for suit shops.
Lakeside Village have several suit specific shops as well as a few that do offer options around their more casual menswear. I wanted something different, definitely nothing plain. Skopes was my first stop. In fact, spoiler alert! The first suit jacket and waist coat that caught my eye was my choice. I had to go through the motions of having a look around just in case there was something even better, but it would have had to have been unreal to deter me from my first choice.
I tell you what, instead of rambling on about what happened, I’ll show you…
I must include a shout-out to the staff at Skopes, they were brilliant. There are many fantastic shops at Lakeside Village but on this occasion Skopes takes centre stage.
I think you’ll agree I’ve pulled it off. Smart, sophisticated and dapper af! Surely you can give yourself a win now and again can’t you.
So I’m ready, I’ve got the 3-piece, the tickets and Donetta is obviously my date, so the only question left now is ARE YOU COMING?
We’d love to see you there, grab your tickets via the link below and make sure you come to say AYUP!
