Rules to play Fox Hunting
The only appropriate neckwear during formal season is a white or cream stock tie, properly tied and secured with a plain i.e., no emblems, ornaments, initials, etc. gold pin. The pin should be placed horizontally; only professional staff may place the pin vertically. Although faux stock ties are permissible, a full length, four fold stock is preferable both for the sake of appearance and, more significantly, in the event it is needed as a bandage or sling. It is also recommended that the ends of the stock tie be secured to the shirt or blouse with safety pins to assure the ends of the tie do not work out from beneath the coat and flap loosely in the wind. Again, men wear a 3 stock pin, ladies a 2 1/2 stock pin in gold. Modern dress Embellished stock pins are sometimes seen.
