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).Entries:
Cotton jacket from Brunello Cucinelli. Tie and square a little underexposed in the above shot, so here they are for reference:
My entry to this challenge with a quilted jacket, very classic for autumn, but it's not so usual to find one in corduroy, that's really perfect for the season :
Still too warm and too not-at-all damp to wear the extra layer, but I had been curious what this field jacket would look like over a more traditional get-up anyway. Pics came out a bit blurry, sooooo... heartfelt apology.
X-post WAYWRN. As stated there, the coat and scarf are displayed for demonstration purposes only, as it will be 70F/21C in NYC by the afternoon. The hat will more than enough insulation for the morning commute.
@heldentenor 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).
I've been dressing very CM casual lately. So this is what I can enter this week:
I wasn't intending to enter this week (hence no decent pictures), but it happened to be wet autumn day and this is what I am was wearing when I came into work. 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 - unseen trousers are olive military serge from Rugged Museum in Tokyo, worn with dark brown dainite-soled Carmina brogue boots.
Whilst on the subject of fishing, the man who fishes the pond scum out of the Lily Pond is behind me fishing out the pond scum. If anyone is wondering why there weren't any entries from anywhere around here, it's been between 90F and 110F here all week. 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.)
Many wonderful entrances, so mine will be just for the number
