Only in the UK: Man has tweed suit made for horse

THREE-piece suits are no longer limited to human wear, according to Morestead, who is, in fact, a horse.

Ahead of England's Cheltenham festival, former racer Morestead modelled his new clothes - which consisted of a shirt, tie and flat cap, along with a jacket - by Harris Tweed, who sell jackets which cost upwards of £300.

So why is the horse wearing an expensive suit, you ask?

Bookmaker William Hill commissioned Emma Sandham-King, who had previously apprenticed for Alexander McQueen, to create the suit to celebrate the festival.

Sir Anthony McCoy, who has been Cheltenham Gold Cup champion twice, can be seen proudly displaying his matching tweed ensemble.

Here he is, looking majestic in tweed.

In a video, below, one man was quoted as saying:

"Morestead is the Naomi Campbell of the modelling world: he's strutting his stuff and he's worn the tweed in style."

 

Morestead was even featured on the front page of the Daily Mirror on Monday, meaning his modelling aspirations might just be realised:

 

The Independent interviewed Sandham-King about the new line in equestrian fashion, but we still have questions. Lots of questions. But one that really matters.
