PCT: Door Knocking Attire
Oct 6, 2010
If you intend to work or volunteer on a campaign, odds are very high that you will end up knocking on some doors. And while most of your fellow door knockers will settle for a campaign tee and some jeans, I like to reach a little higher. After all, casual attire can be chic.
You might want to add some gel insoles if you intend to be on your feet all day. Dr. Scholls makes the best ones on the market. This is one time when spending $8 now will save you endless hours of pain later.
This coat is probably not warm enough for some of the higher elevations. However, since you’ll be out walking, you might get a little warm so you want to layer. This jacket over a sweater and tee should be plenty for most climates and even too much for others.
A reader asked the other day why I am so addicted to tall boots for the campaign trail. The answer is simple: You can make boots more comfortable (with insoles, good socks), and they keep your calves warm with or without heat packs. Can your sneakers do that?
