Younger lawyers or younger students?

Oh, some of both. The last time I put up an ad on Craigslist to hire an associate, I had hundreds of resumes within 24 hours. In fact, the last time I put an ad on Craigslist to hire a paralegal, I had hundreds of resumes from licensed attorneys within 24 hours. It makes me despair for the profession when there are so many out there who are either unemployed or very underemployed. Hopefully with the economy starting to pick up there will be fewer attorneys out of work, but we'll see.

Any details on this sale? I was going to be buying a few pairs of pants from them in the coming weeks but their sportcoats are great looking, too......

I ended up locating a knit/jersey blazer through Nordstrom.....

http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/brooks-b...=&resultback=0

Looks like it'll be good for business casual or for non-work wear....hopefully it fits well. Figured it was worth a shot for $85. I'll take some fit pictures once it's in.

I have an overabundance of jackets compared to my pants
And I have way too many black pants
Need grays and other colors
I find myself not wearing navy pants ... just can't match it with the jackets I have

Its a tough world. We may hire a legal helper, but theres nothing an attorney would do that would be better than a paralegal.

What's wrong with purple lining? I've got it on both my camel hair and houndstooth SCs and I like it.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

That's what I did with both the APC's and the Nudie's. They stretched out after a couple of wears.

the waist is slightly too big ... but i really don't want to go and get the waist taken in on jeans
but i remember the smaller size being way too tight.. i will have to try it on again when i get a chance
