Many law firms that I used to do work for (Deckert Price and Rhoads, Skadden Arps), seemed to have dress codes that required lawyerly "uniforms" usually black pin striped vested suits with grey or very deep blue ties and WHITE shirts.
Philly had a number of tailors whod visit the law firms for custom "Suit days" for new associates.
Reminded me of Men In Black

I wish they hadn't canceled The Milton Berle Show. Uncle Miltie was one funny dude.

I hope that we met.

I was very surprized when I ran into a guy there
with whom I had closely worked, in the 196Os.

I watched 2 seasons of V and then out of the blue ABC cancelled it.
Just left hanging....

Same thing happened to Defying Gravity, a superb sexy sci fi show, cancelled after only 1 season, ABC again, Bastards.

Some counsel deem personal appearance in front of juries to be part of the job.


As a libertarian, I never instituted a dress code in my firm. It was not necessary.
With skillful hiring, that shud not be necessary. It was not. Thay dressed well anyway.

@chai2,
It has indeed...and as you point out here...not just as itself, off-shoots, and prequels...but on other programs and works of fiction.

NBC was blind to what I considered obvious.

AGREED. Definitely.

Those conventions blew my mind.
The creativity of the attenders blew my mind
qua their costumes, and their artwork on the walls, scuptured Spocks and Kirks.
Remember all the dioramas of the Enterprise Bridge made by the attenders (many teenagers)?
The functioning fasers and communicators ?
Did u c the holografy that was shown at one of them? Mindblowing.

At one of them, an Italian restauranteur (was it the nearby "Spaghetti Factory")
who offered a free meal to everyone when the convention closed for the day, at 2 AM??

I remember that some guys scupted from wood a huge model
of a Romulan War Bird, about 15 or 2O feet long n painte it
colorfully n accurately. At the end of its serpentine neck,
was its Bridge. U cud look in the front window and see
models of little Romulans and the flashing colored lights
of their computers.

Thay were from Ohio, and thay imported it to NY on a truck.
Thay did a beautiful job; obviously a lot of work.

I love Ron Livingston and I was so disappointed in the network cancelling that pretty smart show so quickly.

I'm lamenting the cancellation of Community. I was hoping for at least one more season to bring around closure.

The 60's Star Trek is still King in my opinion.
TNG was okay but all the other franchise spinoffs were junk..Wink
