    Friday Challenge 10/4 - Autumn Colors

    In honor of the first full week of Fall, don an outfit incorporating the colors of Fall foliage! According to wikipedia: "Autumn leaf color is a phenomenon that affects the normally green leaves of many deciduous trees and shrubs by which they take on, during a few weeks in the autumn season, various shades of red, yellow, purple, and brown." For the purposes of the challenge, I would expand that list to include the color orange, as well as the various shades of grey associated with tree bark. Don't forget to incorporate your favorite fall fabrics and textures (cords, tweed, etc.). Use this image for inspiration, and let's see what you've got:



    The usual rules:

    1.) A challenge is proposed (typically on a Monday, unless the poster is a slacker, in which case the wee hours of Tuesday morning will just have to suffice).
    2.) Ideas are bounced around throughout the week, any questions are codified, and guidelines are put into place.
    3.) On Friday (or before), everyone dresses according to the challenge's parameters.
    4.) On Saturday, all challengers are recorded and voting opens to see who best represents the challenge.
    5.) A winner is chosen by majority vote on Sunday, and the winner is responsible for choosing the next week's challenge.

    I'll kick this bad boy off:



    I think this jacket's as autumnal as a jack-o-lantern chugging pumpkin spice lattes while sitting on a leaf pile, but if not, the tie's got some orange in it, so...

      That's what I'm talkin' bout! Nice getup, Shomas, and thanks for getting the ball rolling! Where did you get your jacket? Its a great looking sportcoat.

      Edit - saw your jacket was from ebay from your cross-post in the WIWT thread.

            Ooo, I'll probably jump in on this since I can wear colorful pants again. I won't be joining in the fall fabrics though since that would make me bake (still mid-80's here).

              Hey BB, where did you get that sport coat? I am in the market for a brown herringbone, but not wanting to break the bank.

                Yeah, I should've checked the forecast before I selected the challenge theme - "Indian Summer" would have been more appropriate for us East Coasters dealing with temps in the mid-80s (although looks like folks in the upper midwest are facing possible winter storms)!

                  I'm definitely glad I got in on this early!

                    I am in the opposite boat... wearing my fall colors today because the forecast is for a 38┬░F high and winter storm tomorrow. Too snowy for decent outdoor photos, probably.

                      Geauxtigers, it's the JCrew Harvest Herringbone tweed. It's expensive, but on eBay you can at times find it fairly cheap. If you're a 44L, there's one with your name on it for $60: http://www.ebay.com/itm/J-CREW-LUDLO...-/171136782925

                        Unfortunately I am a 40R, thank you though! I will be on the lookout for one, it is a great look.

                          I thought the blue trousers provided nice contrast with the otherwise autumnal color scheme.

                          This is the pumpkin spice latte of sweaters, which is one of the reasons I rarely wear it (too season-specific). I thought of it immediately when I saw the theme for this challenge.

                            We seem to have decided on orange as our color of choice? Sounds good.

                            First post since moving into college!

                              Looking good, Mikey. The glasses and haircut add some years - which in your case is a good thing.
