Gentleman Horse Gets a Tailored, 3-Piece Suit

This is Morestead, a professional race horse. He's been called "the Naomi Campbell of the modeling world." And you can see why. He's the very definition of a classic English gentleman in this bespoke 3-piece tweed suit.

Morestead is participating in the Cheltenham Festival, a major British horse racing event. To celebrate the occasion, fashion designer Emma Sandham-King sewed him a suit using Harris Tweed, which is the finest handwoven tweed fabric from the Outer Hebrides. The BBC reports:

Ms Sandham-King and her team of seamstresses and tailors spent four weeks creating the suit using more than 18m (59ft) of tweed.

The suit, modelled by race horse Morestead and champion jockey Sir Tony McCoy, required 10 times as much fabric as an equivalent human suit.

The horse-sized garment was commissioned by bookmakers William Hill.

Ms Sandham-King said: "Creating the world's first tweed suit for a horse has been one of the biggest challenges that I have faced in my career as a designer.

"Some models can be real divas, but veteran racing horse Morestead was calm and a pleasure to work with."
