What to wear for court? K. P. Walsh Due August 5 (girl); Japan 1385 posts
17th Feb '13

Okay, SO has a VERY VERY VERY important trial coming up..
I think I'm so worried about it that I want to be able to do anything, no matter how little or small, to help.
Sooo.. I was wondering... What colors do you think are best for a man to wear to court?
You know how they say red is an angry or bold color? Black is a mysterious or rebellious color? Blah blah blah blah? So, my question is, what to you, presents a non threatening image? What kind of clothes should a man wear in a courtroom setting to present that image?
Do you think khakis and a medium blue (both ironed of course) shirt and tie would be better than black dress pants and a blue shirt?
I know I'm reading too much into this, but I feel very helpless and I feel like this is something that could make somewhat of a positive impact if done correctly?
HELP LADIES????

I would send Dh in some gray slacks and a light blue long sleeve with a matching tie. Then black shoes.

I don't think khakis are "nice" enough for an important court appearance. I would say black dress pants, light blue shirt (it's a soft, non treatening color but still masculine).
But if you want him to look threatening go with red! Lol

Suit with a tie.

definitely a suit if you can swing it. blue is a nonthreatening color.

That's kind of what I was thinking.
Khaki's seem a little too casual BUT his lawyer said to try to stick with a lighter color pallet. The darker, the more "menacing and villainous you appear."
