Inspired by this article, that I contributed to recently, I thought a jacket/coat challenge would be appropriate for the season. It seems like autumn has hit most of the western world, and on the other side of the equator I see guys like Gerry Nelson donning jackets, so I guess it's pretty appropriate there as well. If you're one of the lucky bastards who live in a place that's more or less always hot, I guess a linen jacket can work(?).

The rules:

- Outfit has to be worn this week.
- You have to wear some sort of outerwear, be it a jacket or a coat.
- It has to be somewhat in the parameters of CM, i.e. has to be at least postable in the CM casual WAYWRN thread.
- Has to be posted before Saturday evening Swedish time (UTC).

this coat is pure awesomeness. Details please?


I don't think I stand any chance this week with such amazing entries, but anyway here is the Trench Coat I wear with a wooly uniform today.
Weather is still very sweet in Paris (around 18°c).

The coat is in ventile from Nigel Cabourn, scarf is Dunhill, jacket is bespoke and the shirt is a BB Black Fleece tattersall - just for @Roycru
, who I remember saying that he couldn't believe people would buy or wear BBBF wink.gif - unseen trousers are olive military serge from Rugged Museum in Tokyo, worn with dark brown dainite-soled Carmina brogue boots.

Only the man who fishes out the pond scum and I have, like mad dogs and Englishmen, gone out in the midday sun.





(The closest thing to anyone wearing outerwear in this picture are the waders that the man in the Lily Pond is wearing.)

We're off to an awesome start!
post #4 of 64

@JHT652 straight in with a strong entry, beautifully photographed.

 

So do I understand correctly, that the point of this challenge is to post a outfit which showcases an exceptionally fine jacket, of somewhat classic style, beautifully and coherently matched with the other elements of the fit?

 

That's a great idea. I will see what I can come up with.

In your part of the world, I guess swimming trunks or bikinis would qualify. Here in Sweden, it's the kind of weather we have all year round.

In parts of Texas ties count as 'outerwear', I believe ...

 

Cheers,
