It seems funny even after one gets used to it, but for clothing fall begins in August.
Fall replaces spring in the stores beginning in mid-July and the transition is completed in August. I don't know what the stores' excuse is but August is also when the travelling bespoke suppliers of my acquaintance ship the things that were fitted the previous spring. That gives the client time to wear them once or twice before the fall visiting season, just in case the new stuff needs adjustment after it is settled in.
Of course, a man needs an air conditioner running full blast in order to test his new 14 ounce jacket, but fall nonetheless begins in August. And the gray worsted in the photo should arrive any day now.
