Alice the Camel

Seeing a man in a camel wool coat makes my heart pitter patter a little quicker as I give him the once over, twice over then an all out head turn as he walks by.  I equate camel coats with business men and distinguished leading men such as George Clooney and Robert Redford.  Yum!  Camel coats used to be made out of real camel hair and would be worn by desert travellers.  They would keep them cool during the day and warm at night.  Nowadays it refers to the colour.  While waiting for the subway this morning there was a dapper fellow looking exceptionally put together wearing a camel coat with a grey scarf.  He could have been wearing a pajama top underneath, but that did not matter because his jacket was perfect and pulled the rest of his business casual look together.
