DRESSING FOR WIMBLEDON;
A VERY BRITISH AFFAIR
Alex Noble writes for The Dapper Chapper
I would whole-heartedly argue that there aren’t more quintessentially British events out there than Wimbledon; meaning I believe it even surpasses the recent Royal Wedding (who am I kidding that was a British-American hybrid) – but enough about Harry and Meghan, as we turn our attention to King Rodger, Queen Serena and the Kingdom of SW19.
Your typical day out at Wimbledon should consist of overly enthusiastic clapping, a punnet of strawberries and cream, a jug of Pimms and at least one complaint about both the heat and also the likely chance of rain.
Factors such as the British elements, colourful drinks choices and the fact that there is no specific dress code, all make a day out at The All England Club rather difficult to dress for. And if you are a serious tennis noob, I thought I’d just let you know the all-white rule is just for the players!
If you’re lucky enough to acquire a hospitality ticket, you have to get it right – no unforced errors chaps. You could be the most famous F1 driver on the planet but if you don’t adhere to the rules of SW19, you ain’t getting in with a floral shirt and fedora (Of course this is for Centre Court hospitality but you catch my drift).
