Complete with a flat cap and tie, Morestead wore the three-piece suit alongside champion jockey AP McCoy. Bookmaker William Hill commissioned former Alexander McQueen apprentice Emma Sandham-King with making the suit, which took four weeks to make and used up more than 18 metres (59 feet) of tweed.
Britain’s Cheltenham Festival, a horse racing event held each year in the western English county of Gloucestershire, kicks off on March 15.
