Fiending for Fall

You can almost feel fall in the air. You can most certainly feel the anticipation in the air. Since it’s not quite cool enough to toss on a pair of cords and a shetland quite yet I thought that I would add to that anticipation and pose a question. The pictures are the anticipation and the question is, what are you looking forward to this fall?

    Fantastic set of photos. Looking forward to much of the same, with both wool and cotton flannel in the mix.

  2. University Stripe says:

    I recently purchased my first Rugby from Lands’ End, and I’m pretty excited to layer it over an OCBD when the temperature cools a little more.

    Perhaps more preppy than trad, but I like the look.

  3. George says:

    What are those brown cords ox, Lands End, they look good

  4. Old School says:

    Ah, the joys of fall!

  5. Pat says:

    Ginger snaps, fresh apple cider and the first time a frost kills my fall allergens. And my quilted Barbour Jacket

  6. Those are all great looks you’ve got there. Bring on the autumn!

    Best Regards,

    George – Thanks! The 5 pocket cords are from J.Crew.

      I’m looking forward (clothing-wise) to flannel trousers, Bean Chamois shirts and my trusty Barbour Liddesdale and Bedale.

  8. Charlottesville says:

    Great looking clothes, Jerrod. Can’t wait for temps to drop a bit in Virginia so I can bring out the tweeds, flannels, cords and Shetland sweaters.

  9. Parker Bradford says:

    Autumn is Trad/Ivy.
    Summer is Preppy.
    Not sure about winter and spring.

    Are those grey cords I’m spotting? Looks great. May in fact have to get myself a pair! Cheers.

    Hi! Thanks for your blog. The second photo from the top of this post is a your arm in a wool sweater. Do you know the color? I really like it and have been looking for it.

    Stan – Thank you! It is called Heathland. This is a brushed version from Harley of Scotland.

I would like to hear from you
