At the risk of sounding like my wife, what are you wearing to the Goodwood Revival?

What is appropriate ‘swinging 60’s’ attire?

Fashion isn’t my greatest strength...

No I’m pretty sure there is no helmet required. It will be a 20mph parade lap. Apart from on the last day when I put my foot down and overtake everyone and get kicked out! Just kidding obviously...

I tend to wear my 'uniform' of jacket & tie and Settrington kennel coat when shouting at the children.
There are minimum standards for entry to the paddocks, and while you don't have to dress age-appropriately, you'll feel out of place if you don't.

Helmets are not required for the parade.

Tee shirt and jeans were apropriate ‘swinging 60’s’ attire, (much to the disgust of my dad at the time) and is usually what I wear to the Goodwood Revival...and I have never felt out of place there. However many of the silly outfits worn at the Revival now were never seen in any race paddock I ever went to in the 1960's including Goodwood! :lol:

I always think it's very weather related, any thing from a mankini if it's screaming hot ( haven't had one of those for a few years) to 16 coats and ten hats if it's piss**g down ( had a few of them lately), my nod to period is to chain smoke

A finely waxed moustache and as many fine fillies as one can handle

Google 1960's paddock photos for lots of ideas.

But please avoid the fancy dress stuff, looking like a character in Sgt Peppers or Gina off of Heartbeat.

A day at the races is always more appropriate than a trip down carnaby St.

Yes the fancy dress stuff is horrendous. I’m going with more of a late conservative 50’s look!

Dressing in the style of Mr Hawthorn then! Long pockets and short arms at the bar!
