I work in the legal field and a wear them frequently. I never have had a negative comment, in fact, quite the contrary. But, in other lines of work, it may not be accepted so graciously. Like a peer told me one time, if you act like a jack-ass, it doesn't matter how well you are dressed! So, I think it may only be ostentacious or over the top if you act that way. How many years have you been a lawyer?
