    Monthly Challenge - November - 'Bonfire Night'

    Sorry I'm a bit late getting this sorted but it took me a while to think of something and also got hit with the winners' curse LG did - I'm moving house and got a bit of travel on this week/month.

    So yeah this month the rules are simple. Not really bonfire night theme, because that just happened, but suitable wet and windy clobber.

    I want at least three visible layers on the top and then just waterproof footwear of any kind. You can freestyle the rest.

    I hope to get an entry in soon but if you could all start posting yours as and when that would be great. The more the merrier.

    Here are some articles to get your juices flowing...

    Fictional bonus points to anyone who can squeeze in some duck boots.

    Challenge ends 30 November.

    When you say 'waterproof' footwear, do you mean water resistant, like a pair of good boots or proper waterproof like wellies?

    Just shoes that will stand up in the rain without getting your socks wet, yeah resistant. Not loafers. But yeah boots and wellies count.

    Think we need to pin this, mods?

    Interesting challenge, I say it every month but I'll definitely do my best to enter. Weather's getting colder so three layers will most likely become everyday wear!

    I would undo the bottom button on your coat and lose the waistcoat, but overall I like it.

    Cheers. 'Tis an old Queens of the Stone Age pin, from the Songs for the Deaf era. I kind of like "dressing down" coats and blazers with the odd pop/rock pin.

    There is just _no_ love for waistcoats on this forum!

    Reiss - Jumper

    Until I saw that pic James, I honestly thought you were the smokey Asian dude in your avatar. That appears not to be the case.

    Hard to see the fit properly as it's a really bad pic like you said, but great hair dude!
