Cool. 

But I already spent all my clothing budget on extra-fancy Pandemic sweatpants

Just got a custom briefcase from Henry Tomkins leather. I can't recommend him enough. Very reasonable prices, excellent quality, and a pleasure to deal with.

Not sure if someone mentioned this already, but Indochino is swell. They usually have good bundle deals for tailored and customizable shirts, pants, suits, and overcoats. I'd recommend it!

Apparently Indochino's idea of an "understated look" is ... an ankle-baring purple double-breasted suit.

Is anyone buying statement pieces anymore? I wore a suit for the first time in forever today, and it’ll be a while till it happens again. Who goes “in addition to the basics, I need burgundy!”?
 

Start advertising suits with a little extra room in the waistband and I might be up to, ahem, retire some older models.

It's done unfortunately, it generally opens for a week or two at a time. It is not really seasonal, it is pretty sporadic and doesn't happen every year.

Any comments from big law associates on how suits work during COVID? I'm going to be starting articles in in a few months and there's a good chance a lot of it will still be WFM/ZOOM law. I currently have 3 suits, all of which have, in the past year or two, become... a tad small. Wondering whether to add another to my wardrobe and/or how many to tailor (if possible... Which is less likely by the day). How many suits would you say are needed/ideal in the current business climate? Also I'm in Vancouver not Toronto if that's a factor.

1 suit jacket

3-4 dress shirts

infinite sweatpants/pyjama pants

wear whatever you want when not on Zoom with clients.

Anyone know when the Bay's semi-annual suit sale happens in Vancouver? Also, how many suits should a student get for in-person summer at a full service firm?

You can get through just about any sort of articling with a navy m, a charcoal, and a selection of shirts and ties. 
 

And double up on the pants with those suits.

That pants advice is very good. Never even thought of that. 

I ran three suits in my summer, but one of them got very little wear... I had... grown a bit since 1L. I would have been fine with two.

Pick a rougher/slightly-textured fabric for your suits, they'll be workhorses, nicer suits often come with finer softer materials which tend to get matted easily when worn in high frequency, creating very shiny patches. And try for full-canvas/or at the very least half canvas .. they last longer after being dry-cleaned

They've had them in Canada for a while. There are SuitSupply's at least in Yorkville and at Yorkdale

    • I don't think they weigh your cGPA too heavily. My cGPA is pretty tragic but I have a strong L2 and a sub-par LSAT and was waitlisted last cycle. I know that's not an acceptance but I really do think they prioritize your L2, and favour a strong upward trend. (I have friends who were accepted over previous cycles with lower cGPA's but strong L2's as well). 
    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
