    Attire for 'coffee chat' style meetings

    I'm an absolute rake of a human being, and there's no way I could make a double breasted suit work. How skinny am I you ask? I recently had to get darts put in my "ultra slim" shirts

    You're taking the Yankees comment too literally I'm afraid. That would be the ugliest suit in existence.

    Can pinstripes look conservative/ not flashy? I want to look like a New York Yankee but I don't have the humongous chequebook

    Apologies. If a fellow homo-sapiens with two X chromosomes don't find this attractive, then I'm fucked 😤

    I feel like "If you have to ask then you probably can't do it" applies here?

    I'll concede that it is maybe a but "much" for an interview (especially considering the common wisdom for law is "dress conservative") but at what point have you "earned it"? After you finish your articles? When you're hired on as an associate? When you make Partner? When you own your own firm? When you become prime minister? The whole etiquette seems so bizarre to me

    Maybe it's just me (and I'm willing to admit that possibility), but if an interviewing committee is willing to dismiss an applicant based solely on a vest, I probably don't want to work there anyway. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those reductionist assholes who think that dressing nice is useless and that we should all just wear jeans and a t-shirt, I just think that people should be able to wear what they want (within reason).

    I'll be a 1L in September, and I happen to be a fan of the three piece As Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon once said "If you think you look hot, you wear it"
