I'm going hunting this Fall, and I know that this is a very superficial question, but I don't want to look like the Camo Clad Rednecks you see now.

If on a big-game junket, one should most certainly emulate TR.
Are you going to a fashion show or hunting ?

Right on point.  The rednecks I know are serious hunters and wear what they need to do hunt.  What you see rednecks in is not in my experience their hunting clothing.

The key to your hunting clothing is what style of hunting you will be doing.  

If it is stand hunting, you want something that you can open up or half wear for when you are moving and heating up.  When you climb the stand you want to zip it all up and stay still and warm.  If you break a sweat walking in, you will be miserable wet and freezing in the stand.  I also recommend a book to read and keep you still.  Read a paragraph and look around slowly, repeat.

Please god tell me that this thread is a joke.

Why does it matter what you are wearing out in the middle of the field? Dress for function. Wear tough clothes that will stand up from the abuse you put it through. If it is hot, wear good breathable clothes. If it is cold, bundle up.

After that, do what you want. Or, go to Brooks Brothers and ask them.

As for me, I like being a Camo Clad Redneck.

I wonder how hard it is to get deer intestines out of tweed?
:D

Not easily. I suppose it depends on the hunting you are doing. If you are shotgun quail/grouse hunting - the task and needs are very different.

I would never suggest tweed for deep incursion/woodland deer hunting, or even turkey hunting or similar. Different task. Different range of acceptable and useful work clothes.
Exactly. Field dressing a deer is a bit different that having your retriever bring you a downed grouse to drop into your game bag.
Dress like a redneck, cammo is good for a reason.

Just leave the six-pack back at camp.

A top hat and tails. The deer will be so impressed they'll jump in front of your bullet for the privilege of being shot by such a well-dressed individual.

Wear camo. Rednecks do it because they hunt a lot, and they know what they're doing.

Wearing camo isn't really going to do much more than just wearing the appropriate colours will with the exception of maybe waterfowl.

Here where I live, with the exception of when hunting waterfowl you have to wear a hunter's orange vest or jacket anyway. (Unless on private land)
