THE FARMER CHALLENGE: BROWN IS FOR FARMER​
The only rule: you must wear a jacket or suit in the most plebeian of colors: [color=5E2612]BROWN![/color] So, just to be clear: Tie? OK. No tie? OK. Square/No square? Yes. Pents/No Pents: Well, hopefully pents, but I suppose that's up to you. Entries should be restricted to fits worn during this autumn season -- WHICH SHOULD BE PRETTY EASY, DUDES. Entries must be received by midnight eastern on Friday. Poll will go up Saturday morning as soon as I can break free from the shackles of domesticity, and will stay up until Monday at noon. ----------------------------------- So, here we have them, boys. Entries for Brown is for Farmer. I defer all credit for the idea, and wish all contestants luck. Don (Juan Corleone) Cologne "Closer than me to my favorite San Francisco Restaurant" Sugarbutch
"Don't say my name three times" Betelgeuse Moi
Ping
YRR92 "Dr Who?" Holdfast porcelain monkey
Victor Elfo {NOTE: On reinspection in laptop monitor, I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt that the Donnegal is brown] "Not your average inner city schoolteacher" AAS "Coffee" kulata
Son of porcelain monkey, The Revenge
"Explanation of my Nickname is Not Fit for Prime Time Consumption" coxaca "The Master" TTO Claghorn "] SharplyTailored Tira EFV
"Crusty"

^^That's why I said the fit could be from this autumn season, as in, anytime in the last few weeks. :fonz:

I also thought the "Tuesday Challenge" had kind of an off ring.

Subscribed. I'd be in if I could post a Saturday morning fit but sadly have to be CBD tomorrow.

Were I a betting man, I'd say that camel hair (in its natural color) would count as brown (albeit very light brown), and for the record, I'm in.

I've worn brown jackets (or suits) three days this week already (including one of the pics in the OP), guess I have to dig deeper in my closer tomorrow and see if I can find another brown jacket. Anyway, a really cool challenge......
