Red Hills Fashion Trends: The Tucked-In Tie

In Fashion

A trend from the 1940’s is making its way back into horse-show fashion. Spotted at the Red Hills International Horse Trials, many a rugged, yet fashion-forward, man are donning a tucked-in tie and sport shirt combination. This looks good, but it also makes sense. Roll up your sleeves, and don’t be afraid to get dirty. A little bit of dust and grime won’t do a thing to undermine the look. If anything, dirt and horse saliva contribute a sense of authenticity. Add a flat cap to complete the ensemble.

There’s no excuse not not be both handsome and handy.
