    I will admit that I am very close to the tail end of being able to pull off these colors.

      I agree that the pink touches are seasonally out of place (saw a guy in the supermarket today (in NYC, where it's fall) wearing a seersucker jacket and it looked out of place) but I disagree that, in a vacuum, the outfit itself looks off. I cannot stand loud socks--almost every time I see them on a man they haven't been done tastefully--but I think you nailed it with those socks, right down to their saturated shade of pink.

        I'm not sure about this pink/season issue. A pink tie and pink socks (when visible) pop; pink shirt under a suit doesn't.

          This is sorta my thought as well...it isn't like is an easter Sunday pastel shirt. It probably comes off more prominent in the pics than it does in person too.

            WIWY.... This was my "deposition Friday casual." Taken in the court reporter's bathroom at the end of two very long days of depositions. I was concerned that wearing tweed, chinos, and boots would be too "Friday casual," until I saw that opposing counsel decided it was appropriate to show up in jeans and an ordinary button-up shirt. SMH.

              Looking good Ben. Big fan of the button down collar and tweed jacket look. Also I am really digging that tie bar that is the same width as the tie.

                Digging the outfit, Ben. Very well done.

                Wow. Incredible. Did anyone comment? I would imagine the judge wasn't present given that it was a deposition.

                  No judge... just the attorneys, the court reporter, and some of the parties, including the person being deposed.

                  Even though it's not a courtroom, I think it's reasonable to expect attorneys to maintain a professional appearance whenever they're representing their client, particularly in a formal, adversarial situation like a deposition. In my opinion it is disrespectful to the deponent (if you're the one deposing the witness) or your client (if you're defending) to show up to a deposition in jeans and a button-up shirt. Unfortunately, here in a rural area, there is a certain combination of ignorance and apathy among some attorneys - particularly younger attorneys - towards standards of professional conduct, including not only superficial things like appearance but also general demeanor and attitude. The senior partner in my firm has made this observation to me. She attributes it in large part to a lack of mentoring of younger attorneys by the older generation.

                            I really like those Neumora double monks. How are they comfort-wise?

                              [MENTION=4677]Shade[/MENTION] I find them fair enough. Sometimes I wear my orthotic for a tighter fit. Personally, I have found that AEs give me the most comfort. I don't know how the comfort of these would compare with that of the Mora 2.0.
