Fall has finally kicked into gear. The weather is cooling down, the leaves are changing, and the pumpkin-flavored snacks are making their way to store shelves. What does this mean for us? Sick, sick outerwear. Willy kindly got us into the fall spirit with his excellent Leather Jacket Challenge, now it's time to kick it up a notch with scarves, long coats, and sweaters.
HOWEVER, any fall-appropriate outfit will not win you this challenge alone. We need the pumpkin-spiciest, sweater-wearing, latte-drinking, flannel-busting, autumn dudes to do justice to the month of October. All outfits must contain one or more fall essentials.
Styleforum Pumpkin Spice Man fall clothing checklist
- Fall appropriate color: orange, tangerine, marigold, cider, rust, ginger, tiger, fire, bronze, apricot, clay, honey, carrot, squash, marmalade, amber, sandstone, yam
- Something furry and/or fluffy
- Waterproof boots
- Brown leather gloves
This is not an exhaustive list! If you have something that you believe qualifies, post it up!
HOWEVER, the fall clothing checklist is not the end! In addition to your fall fit, you must accessorize and/or provide context for your splendid fall days. No stiff poses against bland backgrounds! The pumpkin spicier, the better.

- Drink a Starbucks latte
- Use a stupid instagram filter
- Stroll past autumn leaves
- Grow a cozy beard
- Carve a pumpkin
- Carry some weird heirloom vegetables
Again, this is not a complete list - use your imagination. After the poll is up and running, my wife will assign a score of 1 ("Go back to July") to 10 ("Duke of the Fall") to all contestants based upon their fall accessory aptitude that will be added to their vote total.
Contest runs until November 4th. Fall away, dudes.
