Like every profession, the field of law demands a certain sense of apparel. This instinct is what makes the lawyer seem outstanding and rising above all. So, if you haven’t been there yet, it’s time to change your overall lawyer’s attire!

See them Harvey Specter and Mike Ross dazzling their clients with the usual flair?! Oh yeah, that aint only their talents by being good at that, the season is particularly famous for their suits.

Look impactful, look danty!

The lawyer should exercise good taste and common sense while selecting appropriate business attire. Casual and business attire should be clean, pressed and wrinkle free, without holes or frayed areas. Only small logos like Polo or Izod are acceptable, but pictures and large splashes of promotional information on shirts or slacks are not considered appropriate.


Traditional business attire is normally expected when firm personnel are scheduled to meet with clients or visitors. It’s also a good idea to keep fresh, professional business attire on standby, waiting in a closet, in the event that attorneys and senior administrative personnel must dress for unplanned court appearances, client meetings and other events.
