Every year, newly-minted lawyers are fitted in the long, black robes that distinguish the legal profession. Attending a robe-fitting has become a right of passage for lawyers and judges to mark their academic and professional accomplishments. Because legal and judicial robes are the uniform of the legal profession, it's important to wear custom-fitted, quality robes to maintain a professional appearance in court.
Proper legal and judicial attire is a requirement in most Commonwealth countries. While the design and styling of legal dress has evolved over several centuries, the current styling dates from the 17th century and consists of a waistcoat, robe, wing collar shirt, and tabs.
