    Outfit For The Grand National

    At it again for some more advice, since i seemingly have the creative palette of a coat hanger.

    I need some inspiration for an outfit, that's quite minimal but will look great for the races in Aintree. Any ideas are welcome, just i've got about a budget of £120.

    What i've got to work with at the moment is:
    Pair of tan brogues
    White Shirt
    Brown crew neck jumper (Fred Perry)
    Black V-neck jumper (Fred Perry)
    Navy Chinos (look a bit like suit pants, but definitely not the real deal)

    Like, ideally i wouldn't mind wearing the brogues with the outfit, the other stuff i don't mind if you ignore.

    I was personally thinking of going with just a easy Navy pair of suit pants with the brogues, the white shirt and a standout tie (not sure on the tie colour or pattern) but I'm not really sure if that'll work - any ideas?

    Ye so anyway - all ideas welcome, push the budget a bit if you want, i know a tailor well so if you suggest tailoring don't worry about the price - thank you very much.

    Good lord, is it possible to find a decent suit for around £140? i honestly thought it was gonna be fine to find an olive (not like the riddler) suit thats alright quality in that range, then that went out the window and now i cant find any decent suit thats not black/navy/grey in that range.

    That was a rant, im thinking of going to melt with despair however, as i was aiming at this look and its gone probably.

    God help me.

    EDIT: Any idea also how to make a grey suit really stand out? instead of looking a bit boring and passive.

    Why not just go for a nice navy suit? A lush pair of brogues and a well placed pocket square and you'll look dapper. I don't know aha, the races isn't an event I frequent much...
