Just the word Casino conjures up images of men is sharp suits and women in slinky dresses against the backdrop of a crowded room full of craps tables, Black Jack dealers and plenty of noisy slot machines. Casinos may be all about money and luck (and a sharp mind too of course!) but they’re also about style and when you want to exude confidence, you have to have the right outfit. We’ve partnered with jackpot.co.uk to bring you the five essential items you need to be the most stylish person in any Casino.
You want to be sharp and sleek, your suit needs to be tailored to perfection. Think Daniel Craig in Casino Royale or Pierce Brosnan in Goldeneye. What these Bonds had in common was a tailored-to-perfection tuxedo from Brioni. The price of a standard Brioni tuxedo starts at around £3,300, but for those seeking a truly special suit can make use of the tailor’s bespoke service, with more than 800 fabrics to choose from.
Christophe Claret’s 21 Blackjack timepiece captures the theme of the casino without being too costumey. Along with poker and baccarat editions, it comprises the watchmaker’s Gaming Collection. The 21 Blackjack version has three built-in games the wearer can play while away from the casino.
Dice: A pair of miniature dice are located in a sapphire glass cage on the side of the case.
Roulette: The winding rotor on the back of the watch serves as a working roulette wheel.
Blackjack: Dealer and player cards are located behind tiny shutters on the face of the watch. Buttons on the side shuffle the pack, and give the dealer and the player additional cards.
The watch is automatic, and its complex movement boasts a total of 501 parts including 40 jewels and 7 double ceramic ball bearing mechanisms.
Just 21 watches were produced, with prices starting from around $200,000.
Cufflinks are the chicest finishing touch on a sharp suit, and Tateossian London has just the thing to compliment a Brioni tuxedo. The brand’s Casino Collection comprises four styles based on different table games. Tateossian’s playing card cufflinks open out like a deck of cards, while its roulette cufflinks feature a miniature roulette wheel with a tiny ball. Its dice cufflinks feature dice that can be rolled inside their transparent case, and its poker chip cufflinks rotate and change colour. Crafted out of stainless steel and designed to encourage interaction with the wearer, these cufflinks are a quirky conversation starter, perfect to wear at a casino.
Priced between £165 and £195, they can be purchased without a jackpot win.
For days when you want to be casual but still on theme, a collaboration between American hip hop record producer Just Blaze, retailer Packer Shoes, and trainer manufacturer Saucony, delivers the perfect casino-themed trainer.
Based on the Saucony Grid SD, this limited-edition sneaker celebrates the red, green and gold colors of the roulette table. Other casino design cues include “00” and “36” stitched onto the back of each shoe, while the image of a roulette wheel can be found on the tongue. Inside each shoe a red and gold grid mimics the squares on the table in which players place their chips. A white dot on the left shoe represents the ball. They can be purchased via online auction sites for around $160.
For the ladies, a Chanel purse is the finishing touch that any evening outfit needs. Go bold by choosing the dice-shaped minaudiere from the brand’s first Casino Collection (2016). The black purse features casino-themed brass symbols, which are laid out in the same pattern found on standard dice. It launched as a limited edition and is now only available on the second-hand market where prices still hover around the $13,000 mark.
It’s definitely the kind of purse you’ll want to take home your winnings in!
