What is it about a uniform? They can be practical, decorative, honorific, or just something you found lying around — but they always make the wearer look a little bit better. Especially if that wearer is a famous writer, someone whom you think of only in a T-shirt and sweatpants, banging away at the typewriter in the near-dark. Or is that just me? Either way, here you’ll find 25 snaps of some of your favorite writers all dressed up in uniform — whether military, sports, school, or otherwise — and if you’re soon to be putting on a back-to-school uniform of your own, well, take heart. It’ll look good.
