Best Dressed - Goodwood Revival
Dress to ImpressIt's the Goodwood Revival this weekend, a genteel, nostalgic and eccentric — in a thoroughly British way — celebration of the golden age of motorsports at the Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit.
If you are attending, there is a Best Dressed competition for ladies and gents held each day (portraits of competitors from last year above and below — smashing cardigan). And this year the festival celebrates the anniversary of Youthquake (a term coined in 1965 by Vogue editor Diana Vreeland to describe Swinging London) by introducing a Most Iconic Miniskirt award. I'm not sure one would suit me, but they do say there are some very good prizes to be won.
Shopping for DrivingFrom the Goodwood shop I recommend for your shopping cart the Goodwood Distressed Leather Cap, an eight-piece cap designed for 'an early morning tour down English country lanes'. The cap is perfect with a beaten-up old Barbour and Fair Isle sweater for a drive to a country pub for roast beef and Yorkshire puddings and a half of bitter.
And whilst your tootling around in your open top Morgan 4/4, you really want to be wearing a pair of the Goodwood Mens String-Back Driving Gloves in capeskin.
