A Horse Wore A Suit Yesterday

by MR Magazine Staff

A racehorse named Morestead brought his A game today for the start of the Cheltenham Festival in Gloucestershire, England. The Cheltenham Festival, of course, is the annual coming together of horses and the people who love them to watch races, high jumps, uh, and all the other ur-British horse-related things you’ve probably seen people soft clap at on Downton Abbey. But back to Morestead, the peacocking thoroughbred. The stallion cut a majestic, and also entirely uncommon, silhouette across the British countryside in a three-piece Harris Tweed suit and matching driving cap, courtesy of designer and former Alexander McQueen apprentice Emma Sandham-King. It took Sandham-King and her team four weeks and ten times the amount of nubby tweed fabric of a suit intended for a man (59 feet to be exact) to complete the sartorial showpiece. See more at GQ.
