    On the road and with a limited wardrobe, but this is probably the jacket I would have worn anyway. No full-length, though...

    I only have one brown SC that I haven't already worn this week so that made the choice of what to wear today very easy (which was good since I was in a hurry this morning), although I must say I am not 100% happy with how it turned out. Also, again the lighting was extremely flat, so colours in the full shot are kind of washed out. The detail shots have a better representation of the true colours.

    Some really nice fits posted already. I'm also ready to toil in the harvest fields...

    Tie is actually navy cashmere, and the square is a reddish/brownish/with-other-earthy-colours madder; apologies for the dark photos.

    Crusty, the yellow cast of the light in your apartment was just too much for me to accept today. Especially in a color-based challenge, we need to see something closer to reality. Is this more like what we'd see IRL?

    Edit - ignore this post; Caustic's done a much better version downthread.

    Yep. I did a quick and dirty levels adjustment in the P'shop, but yours looks better. Assuming Señor Crust's approval, that version should be used for the challenge.
