The Best Dressed Men Courtside: Wimbledon 2022
Wimbledon is not only the world’s oldest tennis tournament. It’s a prestigious, cultural event in Britain that celebrates the sport in style.
Set in the English summer sunshine, ladies and gentlemen arrive at the occasion equipped with their delectable picnic spreads and flowing champagne. The oooh-ing, ahhh-ing and raptures of applause from the well-dressed spectators echo around the London area as they watch the top tennis talent in the world go toe-to-toe.
The Wimbledon tournament, held at The All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club has long been associated with fashion. Ralph Lauren has dressed the ball boys and girls for well over a decade, while the sportsmen and women must take to the court in their tennis whites.
The crowd — dotted with royalty, celebrities and other famous faces — are not so restricted in their choice of outfits. But what exactly should one wear to attend Wimbledon?
Is there a dress code for Wimbledon?
It may come as a surprise, but there is no strict dress code for the spectators at Wimbledon. Though with that being said, members of the crowd are encouraged to dress smartly.
The only strict rule surrounding attire for the public is that their clothes should not feature any offensive or political messages, nor should they offer clear commercial marketing.
This year, Wimbledon attendees have been blessed with particularly warm and sunny weather. However, Brits are more than familiar with the unpredictable nature of summertime, so it’s rather sensible to dress in preparation for all weathers. That could even mean packing your sun cream along with your umbrella.
While ladies will often opt for light, flowing dresses, gentlemen tend to don fashionable suits along with their best ties. Traditional, tailored suits are most commonly worn at the tennis tournament, so we’d recommend bringing out your favourite suit for the occasion.
Still unsure what to wear? We’ll garner some inspiration for you below sir.
Best dressed men from the tournament
Here are some of the best-dressed gentlemen that attended Wimbledon this year.

Dressed in a brown suit, paired with a complementary waistcoat that matched his hat, Mark Rylance looked ever the gentleman.
Looking rather dapper in his navy pinstripe suit, Paul dressed the look down with a casual white t-shirt paired with white trainers.
