Morestead, a veteran racehorse, has been given a fresh new look — and it’s dignified as hell.

In anticipation of this year’s Cheltenham Festival, Morstead showed up dressed in a three-piece tweed suit, designed by former Alexander McQueen apprentice Emma Sandham-King. Morestead’s look is historic: He’s wearing the first ever horse-sized tweed suit.

“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,” Sandham-King told The Telegraph. “Some models can be real divas, but veteran racing horse Morestead was calm and a pleasure to work with.”

The outfit, commissioned by William Hill, took four weeks and over 18 meters of tweed to make. According to The Telegraph, roughly 200 miles of tweed are worn every year by spectators at Cheltenham, so Morestead fits in with the dress code.

Who wore it best, though: Horse or human spectator?

The horse, in a landslide.
