The Quintessential Author Wardrobe
Authors as a whole are a notoriously quirky group of people. After all, most of us spend an undue amount of time living in our own heads. The more successful writers even get to do it as a profession! A number of fashion tropes have been either adopted by or imposed upon the writing community, and some of the best of these have been compiled into "The Illustrated A - Z Guide to Author Wardrobe Staples." Some featured articles of clothing, like the doublet, hearken back to a time where a satirical play could get you killed. Others, like overalls, are directed toward a very specific demographic. For my personal writer's wardrobe, "B" would be for "Bandana, red with skulls and crossbones, and worn to aid in the thinking process."
