I get to make like Doug and have what amounts to a closetful of the same outfit, with ties in a mechanical rotation.


Enjoy your summer at Cravath, Swaine & Moore.


I wish...


Huh? I was told by someone going there that Cravath was the only firm in New York that still has a business formal dress code. Mind sharing which one it is, since you're anonymous and all?

Biz Caz in SD is a "nice shirt" and "nice jeans." That shit is almost as much as a mid-range suit, but is much more comfy.

This describes my firm's approach as well. Although if you can't buy a respectable looking pair of jeans and a button down for less than a $300-500 suit, then you're doing it wrong.

Not sure where you're getting that from. PW is year-round business casual according to the information sent out to the 2012 SA class.

+1. Pick up some nice designer jeans at Nordstrom Rack for 100.
