    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).

    @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.

    ^Right on the money. Next time (if I'll ever get to host one of these again) I'll let you write the OP.

    Fuck all y'all. Outerwear weather doesn't start for another three months here. Y'all all asshats.

    (But I'm very much looking forward to the entries)

    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.
