Did you ever wear a Polo Coat?
Even if you never write the book, you should give yourself the pleasure of research that is necessary for most writing projects. It takes you places you will enjoy going.
For example: a few lines from the novel I’m working on.
She thought of the little coat closet beneath the staircase on Asbury Ave were mufflers and old boots were stashed. It was in this same closet that her navy blue snow pants and red Eisenhower ski jacket made room for a camel hair Chesterfield coat she took to college.
BUT WAIT… CHESTERFIELD IS NOT RIGHT! I had to write a friend in Indiana, a contemporary, describing my coat because I couldn’t think of – POLO COAT, which was her reply.
Time out for a little fun research to share with you.
This could have been my Kappa Kappa Gamma class of ’60 at U. of KY. complete with bobby socks and saddle shoes
