Since the first running of the Melbourne Cup in 1861, ‘the race that stops a nation’ has been an opportunity for socialites, celebrities, and Australia's rich and famous to gather and show off their latest fashions. Traditionally attendees opt for a black and white look, however leaders don’t follow! We suggest making your own path like our Aquila S/S13 Ambassador Mr Deon St.Mor with the following selection.

Derby Day Selection #1 – Aquila Islington Navy Suit

The Aquila Islington Navy is an elegant 2 button, double vent suit cut from 80% Superfine Wool and 20% silk milled in Italy.

We recommend the Islington suit as your best chance at being the stand out thoroughbred for fashion on the fields. SHOP

Derby Day Selection #2 – Aquila Tomek Navy Shirt

The Aquila Tomek pale blue shirt is a bold statement particularly on Derby Day.
