I'm afraid I must admit a bit of incredulity as well. Is this just a thing with attorneys?

That's because the locals are as scarce as a Bengal tiger in this part of town.
That and the distinction between Belgravia, and neighboring Victoria, Westminster, Pimlico, and I'd even go as far as saying Knightsbridge with the nuvo-riche types, is huge.

So the majority of high-end lawyers in London wear morning dress to work every day?

Not the ones I've met, but maybe that just reflects the low-brow circles I move in.

London is a large place; only in small pockets. Moreover, this practice is not confined to legal professions.

I remember when I was in Budapest in the year ninteen-hundred and twenty-five, the concierges of the Hotel Gellert all wore morning suits, and pinstriped trousers with the cuffs just trailing so.

Mr. Pollock, if I remember correctly, you are a size 10. If you need unload some JM handmades or other assortment of shoes, I am around.

Slightly more serious, I think what you are doing is fine -- just wear your things in places that is not work or court. Who cares that only 5% of people dress up for Broadway these days? You are still not alone. I also find that the best restaurants still command higher level of dress. A sunday dinner at Bouley showed 85% of the men in jackets. Also, if you'd like, you can do the charity circuit and wear nice clothes at the various dinners and benefits or take on other hobbies that enable you to dress well.

Aside from all that, what's wrong with not wearing your various clothing more than once or twice? Sure, it's an existential crisis for the clothes themselves (their made-purpose not being fulfilled), but that should not be a problem for you. You obviously like the variety and the ability to pick from a large permutation of things on a whim. Sure it may be excessive, but so what? Hobbies are about excesses, really. If you empirically enjoy having the variety of items you own, you shouldn't let society's norms get you down that much.

So that must have been you I saw stepping out of a Minerva -- or was it an Isotta-Fraschini? -- as I was taking my leisure there with an erstwhile paramour.
