As one of the AFL’s most undisputed fashionable men it was a real pleasure to get to style GWS Giant Dylan Shiel for his appearance on the biggest day of the Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival calendar. Keeping in tradition with the theme of the day we incorporated colour to a traditional suit which allowed his to stay relevant and on trend while keeping up with his fashionable standards.

Starting with a traditionally tailored grey patterned suit we decided to make bold statements with the accessories he wore highlighting his love for fashion and proving his well deserved and revered spot as a fashionable and dapper man of character amongst the well dressed men of the AFL. Using a candy-striped pink and purple tie and a vintage styled spotted blue, pink, purple and white pocket square we then updated the look from a classic must wear suit to a statement piece adding in a pair of brown brogues as a finishing touch.

If you weren’t able to get a glimpse of Dylan Shiel inside the birdcage this year then take a look below for a first hand look at the master of style himself.
