DRESSING WELL = DRESSING RIGHT
MICHAEL SEAN QUINN*
All adages are false when taken to be universal. Some adages have wisdom. Here is one for attorneys:
Orderly appearance and therefore dress, among other things tends to lead to (and a is often a necessary condition) more successful practice.
This is disappointing for those who love seeing themselves as rebellious, dissenters, radically independent, living at the edge of society, among those free spirits who are criticizing the orthodox order, e.g., for being pointlessly rigid. The trouble is that even bohemians and vagabonds like their lawyers to appear to be orderly, since they symbolize the law itself.
