Royal Visit: Super spectator style at the polo fields
The royal couple may have had necks craning during the Foundation Polo Match at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club on Saturday afternoon, but many of the accessories worn by the male spectators were also worth a second look. Most were as manly and sophisticated as the fleet of Audi cars delivering guests to the field and others donned more dandy details that felt dapper yet perfectly appropriate for summer weather.
Savile Row tailor and designer Tony Lutwyche (whose menswear line hits Saks Fifth Avenue, Beverly Hills this fall) was sharp in a dark blazer, bright purple pants and two-toned oxfords he designed.
The Duke of Argyll paired a rich, floral Duchamp tie with his Clan of Campbell tartan, Duchamp tie and gray vest.
“I love the extraordinary brand that the clothing companies that support polo [like Ralph Lauren and Jack Wills, the latter of which made the team jerseys for the Foundation Tournament] bring to the game. “Everyone here today is living their own version of “Pretty Woman.”
