    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.

    This is nice but is it outerwear?

    @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).

    Thanks, SYCSYC. The coat is in a casentino wool that another StyleForum member MTO'd from Luxire. He didn't think he'd wear it much so he passed it on to me at a quite generous price.

    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.

    Well, it sure as hell ain't underwear.

    By the way, this is a "jacket (or coat)" challenge. The fact that everyone else happened to be fishing that day is neither here nor there.
