one of my partners does that. But it takes so much more effort to put the shirt and tie on when the zoom hearing arrives and then take it off than just to wear the proper pants during the day.I don't appear in court anymore, but I was talking with one of my former colleagues and he said that for the past 15+ months he's just been sitting at his desk at home and making appearances before the court while wearing a shirt and tie on top, and shorts and slippers below.
He commented that it's going to feel really odd having to wear long trousers and business shoes again!
he sort of jokes about the look as sort of a celebration that he doesn’t have to drive to the courthouse, but I don’t think it saves him time or is more comfortable than just wearing trousers during the day.
when I was working at home, I would still out the suit on. It helped me to differentiate between work time and relax time. Too easy to just say f it and step outside to the beach or the pool and blow off whatever tasks need to be done when working from home, when wearing the proper attire it’s a reminder not to do it. Also, it was a reminder when sitting on the beach or at the pool but not wearing a suit that I was not working.
but that was due to the exceptional circumstances of work from home and adjusting.
