I hope you take your ball with you.

Whatever looks good hung up by your desk or over your chair...

In the old days, it was de rigueur on the StyleForvm for first year associates to get their wardrobe bespoke from Rubinacci, Mattuozo, and Marinella.

The shoe situation back then, though, was not so good. That part has not changed.

hahaha..........you sound like a little bitch.

Are you sure you're "big into clothes" if you have to ask for such basic advice????

I work at one of the largest law firms in the world and people like you are dime a dozen...........enjoy!

hahaha........want some cheese with your whine?

People like you are dime-a-dozen - both on internet forums and big law firms alike.

Are you sure "big into clothes" if you have to ask such basic advice?

As a summer associate, you'll really only need one suit. You will wear it on the first day, and after that only if you get to tag along to court or a client meeting or something similar. Invest in nice, well-fitting shirts and pants, and 2 pairs of shoes that are not too fashion-forward. Trust us.

You refer to yourself as lawschoolguy and make a point that you will be wearing your suit to an internship with a law firm in New York. If you just wanted advice on high-quality suits, you shouldn't have made such a big deal out of the context. Or, better yet, you could have just not started a new thread and done your own research...you know, like what you'll be expected to do as an intern.

LawSchoolGuy, part of being a good lawyer is knowing how to take advice from your colleagues who've successfully been there and done that before you. Even (maybe especially) when their advice doesn't mirror how you'd really like to do things. And this is all the more true when you're a young and inexperienced lawyer.

Gotta agree with this. I'm also a lawyer.

What?

Unless you're talking about a few hedge funds and Soros up at the circle... ... ... what?

Look, people here get some young clueless moron asking how to put pants on at his "BigLaw/Finance/Other shitty NYC industry I piss on" job every 5 minutes and they manage to answer him with relatively good advice every time, then the kid gets pissed cause he can't dress like James Bond or whatever you barbarians choose as a style icon. Shut the fuck up and listen to your betters, they'll be bossing you around and making you do insignificant tasks for like 90hrs/week for the next 10-15 yrs. After that you'll probably end up in a ditch..

Just dress whatever you like (except the sandals and t-shirts), make sure you are cheerful and keen learner.

Ignore the haters, young guy should dress like a young guy.
