RETURN OF THE SCREENWRITER’S UNIFORM

The original screenwriter’s uniform blog post is lost in the interwebs somewhere (how does this happen?) but it keeps coming up in conversation. (Also, according to fashion experts, white sneakers are back! Whoah. Did not see that coming.)

I yanked some photos off the internetz that more or less are different versions of “the uniform” (for women).

The Screenwriter's Uniform

There are a couple shots in there in which women are not wearing jeans. That’s for the people who claim they do not own jeans and cannot wear them. (I don’t know how that happens in this century but I am assured it does.) Also, these are pretty spruced because they’re fashion shots, but that’s essentially it, the uniform: Jeans, casual shirt or T-shirt, flats, loose casual jacket.

Also, so the guys do not feel left out, here is a “the writers” shot from The Larry Sanders Show.

The Writers, The Larry Sanders Show

That’s really accurate. The Writer’s Room is not a suit and tie world.
