Remember the prior discussion on what men wear to court? Well, today a lawyer showed up in court with a brown blazer, a tie, jeans, and black gym shoes (or at least I thought they were gym shoes - a colleague thought they were boots).
He sat in the lawyer section for at least a hour before his case was called. I left the court to do a couple things and returned just as the lawyer went to the bench with his client. Then I went over and sat next to a friend who had waited after his case was finished specifically to see what was going to happen. The deputy on our side of the bench did a double-take then looked over at us and pointed at her pants; we just nodded.
Me: "If he gets away with that I'm wearing jeans from now on."
Colleague: "I'm gong to start coming to court in sweats so I can be comfortable like my clients."
The lawyer waived his client's preliminary hearing and the judge didn't say a word to him the whole time. Not a word.
Does anybody know where I can buy some decent jeans?
