We've entered the final weeks of summer in the Northern hemisphere and our active wardrobes will change with the new season. Autumn's country clothing, like Spring's, takes its coloring cues from nature. Tweed jackets were woven to blend into the terrain during the stalking season in Scotland, and sweaters and corduroy trousers share that same palette.
Shetland sweaters, like these Jamieson's at Ben Silver, are one of the reasons that Fall is my favorite time of year. Wear them over a checked flannelette shirt.
Men with compatible coloring who haven't already taken advantage of rust and orange in their Fall wardrobes should trying adding an item or two to their closets. As the photos illustrate, either color will complement sky blue, bottle green, or mustard corduroys.
I've always enjoyed the way city clothes reflect the colors of man, while country clothes blend with nature. Autumn sends me to the country side of my closet.
